For all those who doubt the deep — and historic – relationship between geeks and sports, need marvel at the genius that is Strat-O-Matic. The Glen Head, New York board game maker pioneered an eerily accurate baseball simulator back in 1961 based basic dice and data cards. There are versions for other sports like football, but baseball players can expect to play a decent recreation of fake baseball with your favorite players in about 30 minutes. The thing is, there is actually news in Strat-O-Matic. The game now has a Negro league version. Satchel Paige, Josh Gibson, Cool Papa Bell, Buck Leonard and many more now can play along with their white contemporaries. Now modern fantasy players may snicker, but Strat-O-Matic does a great job of bringing the past alive. And we bet DiMaggio/Gibson would be a hell of a match up.
