1970 Baseball Replay

Welcome to an alternate universe of the 1970 baseball season using my season replay results with Diamond Mind Baseball combined with the actual off-the-field, and sometimes, on-the-field events.

This project began with the 1965 season and accordingly all statistical and record references are from this replay project. References before the 1965 season are based on real life events. Spotify users can enhance your experience by listening to music from the era by listening to my 1970 playlist as you surf the site. Enjoy!

Today is Saturday, May 9, 1970
