The Return of the RBL

Recommended Posts

I'm baaaaaaaaaaaaaaaack...

It's been over a year since my failed attempt at bringing my Baseball Concept League to life. (People like me, who have severe ADHD, have problems sticking to projects like this.) Well I am done procrastinating! I will start posting jerseys tomorrow, and the League backstory and rosters are going to be posted later today.

Here is a link to my old topic if you want to check it out

First off... a brief history of the Rylandian Baseball League. The RBL was formed in 1930 with 8 founding teams- Lemoncoppy, Rajcek, Azure City, Glymack, Jecoaca, Salvatore City, Trio, and Coldwater. Bright Personalities like 'Limey' Irv Greene and 'Geronimo' Jerry Poff, along with legends Lou Bernardi, Beau Rudd and Jack Wallace made the league instantly popular and two expansion teams were added in 1948 (St. Sean and Skyblue). The most popular team was the Jecoaca Capitols, who won the RBL championship 6 times led by Bernardi and 'Red' Morris.

Under Bernardi, the new commissioner, the league again expanded to 14 teams in 1960- Orland, Finitopia, Lavlavil and San Pablo were awarded teams. By 1962, the RBL had become the most popular attraction in Rylandia. 1965 brought an expansion team to Shefford, and in 1972 to Tarnik, Sanjangle, Phosphorus Valley, DelCarmen, and Great Towers. After Bernardi's passing in 1976, former Azure City pitcher Demitri Fentonelli took over as commish. Trio and San Pablo dominated the 70s and early 80s, winning a combined 10 titles. San Pablo SS Cisco 'The Kid' Salazar was widely regarded as the league's best player at the time, winning league MVP 6 seasons.

In 1986, Koya, Tarnik and San Niño were awarded expansion teams, along with the small island-city of Bree. Unlike most new teams, Bree flourished in it's inaugural season, finishing 5th. They have been one of the top teams in the league since. Earthmont was given a team in 2008, marking the final expansion.

Update: Lemoncoppy is finished but I am having problems with photobucket. If anyone can tell me how to scan the photo and post it on here (I have an iPad), that would be great. Once I get that done I can post the actual concept.

Use imgur I use an iPad as well so look at this http://www.bbcode.org/examples/?id=10

Copy and paste the URL link

I only have a picture on my camera roll right now... There is no URL. I tried imgur but again I need a URL in order for that to work

in order to upload the pictures on imgur you need to insert the URL. I have no URL on these photos, they are just on my camera roll...

You should be able to upload them from your phone.

You don't need a URL to upload them on imgur

I just saw there was an option to upload from your camera roll. Apologies for my ignorance, Lemoncoppy will be up this afternoon.

Are you seriously not going to post any concepts? Have you even made any concepts? A general rule is to start a thread with a concept, because right now this looks like a joke.

You've said that far too many times. Trust me, I'm a procrastinator too, but this is just silly. You've put it off way too long.

Agreed. If I get a good picture with my crappy iPad camera, Lemoncoppy is being posted tonight. If not, the jerseys will be posted tomorrow. This is my final update.
