Turtle Pilgrim posted a topic in Sports Fan FictionI have been watching this site and/or any number of others for some time, and I have come up with some proposed all-time teams and/or team names for various teams in various sports. In this thread, I will mainly start off with all-time teams, and describe the aforementioned sports universe here. Before I get started, however, I must also say that I may have seen certain names for possibly fictional teams all over the Internet that may have been made up by others, and if I happen to have borrowed some from any of you, I may have gathered them unconsciously, or forgotten where I got them from over the years. If I have done so unknowingly with any of your known team names, please keep that in mind. At least partly due to my Asperger's Syndrome, I am also rather forgetful at times, unfortunately, so please forgive me if I don't remember where I may have seen or gathered the names from, and state where I may have done so, at times. Okay, time to get started, folks. I will start with baseball teams and/or leagues first, whether such teams and leagues are real or not. And I will, at least at first, mix players from various eras of franchise histories, and some players may be assigned to certain franchises other than their own main real-world ones for various reasons, including possibly their main teams having no available roster slots for players on their all-time teams, for instance, More about this sports universe will be revealed as time passes, if and when possible. I will welcome opinions about my picks of players and coaches/managers for said teams, et cetera, as long as they are respectful, courteous, civil, constructive, non-threatening, and non-profane, et cetera. But I will not consider any opinions that are not those things, if I don't have to, either in relation to this post/thread I'm making now or any others. I welcome your suggestions, as well, if they meet the above criteria as well. And I can certainly take justified criticism and well-founded correction, I'm sure. The first team I will reveal my envisioning of an all-time roster for, folks, is the Boston Red Sox, from a version of the American League in my sports universe. I will try to go alphabetically by teams in leagues, when possible, as I reveal my hypothetical all-time teams for various franchises, et cetera. for that matter. Please feel free to give your opinions of my picks for players, et cetera, as you wish, then, as requested. But please remember to keep them as appropriate and as clean, et cetera, as possible, folks. Boston Red Sox (Managed by Joe Cronin): OF Ted WIlliams OF-1B Carl Yastrzemski 3B Wade Boggs OF Dwight Evans OF Jim Rice 2B Bobby Doerr SS-3B-2B Johnny Pesky SS Nomar Garciaparra P Cy Young P Roger Clemens C Carlton Fisk P Luis Tiant P Tim Wakefield P Pedro Martinez 1B David Ortiz 2B Dustin Pedroia C Jason Varitek 3B Frank Malzone 1B Mo Vaughn OF Dom DiMaggio P Bob Stanley P Jonathan Papelbon P Mike Timlin P Derek Lowe P Ellis Kinder In this universe, there is also no DH present, for instance, unless otherwise stated, when it comes to baseball or softball, so the pitchers WILL BAT except where I say otherwise. Many of the classic teams will not be able to have all their best players on their rosters, especially with teams like the Yankees, due to the stated roster limit of 25 players. Although I may decide later to add enough players for a 40-man roster per applicable baseball team. I had at least some difficulty picking players for this roster, and with other rosters as well, for reasons including not enough space for certain playing positions on said roster, of course. But I still tried to pick the best possible ones for this roster and certain others, just the same. That is all for now, I think, from this Turtle Pilgrim. I will post at least one of my ideas about a possibly suitable Chicago White Sox all-time roster later, possibly as early as Saturday, if not sooner, I think. Depends on how quickly I can manage it, and depends on how many responses this post/thread gets, at least, most likely. Turtle Pilgrim out. P.S. Unless otherwise stated, certain teams will stay in their classic locations, and I have not yet decided when this universe's starting year is, or starting years are, for various leagues, et cetera. I would welcome any number of well-thought-out suggestions, however, I believe, regarding such, folks. Turtle Pilgrim out. P.P.S. The image you have probably all been waiting for is here: I do not yet know how many of these uniforms I will be able to do without help, though, unfortunately. For the away version of this, imagine the pants and jersey parts, except for the stripes, are gray where you see white, at least for the main areas of the uniform. The font is Augusta. I will not likely be able to do an away version of this uniform, seeing as the image in question was saved on my computer as a JPG file, and then uploaded to DeviantArt as such. So you will probably have to imagine it in your minds, based on this. I got colors from Colorwerx as well, in terms of the RGB numbers, at least, folks. Hope you like this try here, still, though. If anyone might want to help me out here, in terms of creating the artistic renditions of uniforms for teams I will mention, please let me know, and I will see what happens. I can certainly try to do the writing part as best as I can, and then we'll see how things go, on the artistic side, whether I do other uniforms or not as well. Turtle Pilgrim out.
davidmiller5 posted a topic in ConceptsI have known for months that my next concept series would be a MLB redesign. Major League Baseball is a league that holds on to its tradition more than any other league, so I decided to use this to create designs that combine different eras of the teams' histories. Before I begin, I should set some parameters (that I will try to keep from breaking): All colors, designs, etc. need to have been used by the team.I can combine elements from different logos, etc. to make a new logo. I am not necessarily trying to incorporate every past logo; instead I will try to end up with a concept that will look good while reflecting different eras of the teams' histories. I am not designing "throwback" uniforms. They aren't supposed to look like the jerseys that were worn in the 1940s; these are modern uniforms that incorporate old design elements. For this reason (and personal preference) I am using a template that has loose pants and socks instead of stirrups. I know that many of you aren't big fans of this look, but I want to replicate what MLB players are currently using. I am not necessarily going to create the look that I would want them to wear; there are probably going to be aspects of some uniforms that aren't my favorite, but I will still incorporate them into my design. That being said, I will not intentionally be creating ugly uniforms. I will give myself more freedom on the alternates, but they still must use elements that have been used before.Let me know what you think about the idea. Feel free to give suggestions about ways to improve the concept. A huge thanks to tbdaniel15 for creating the template that I am using. After I had the idea for this ScoffingYayap and (especially) SFGiants58 have done projects that have combined eras for some of the teams. They have done a very good job, and there will be some overlap with what they have done. I decided not to scrap the project just because others have had some of the same ideas I have.
