When transferring some older league files the other day, I came across some interesting things - namely websites and pictures from the early 2000s. I thought it might be fun to share some of the older league stuff with the newer league members.

Below is a link to what the home page of the league website looked like in the fall of 1999. Keep in mind this was the early years of Internet when most everyone had a dial-up, slow as snail's balls, connection. You can click on stuff, but most of the links are broken.

The website was overhauled in the spring of 2000. That was when the coed league bat restriction came into being. The following spring, the league-wide bat restriction was instituted. Aside from color changes and a tweak here and there, the league website has maintained this format to date.

I've taken the liberty of posting pictures of some of the league's more well-known vets. Click the link next to the name to view a picture of that player from the 1999-2002 SBA era. I was the one taking the pictures back then using a small pocket Canon digital camera. They pale in comparison to what you have been accustomed to from Rich Edmundsen, but photography is not my thing. If this is well received, I will post more as I go through the years.

It's always fun to see that old stuff from the early Internets. I love the "Wayback Machine". Check out: https://web.archive.org/web/*/http://ww ... sports.net then click on any of the dates to see what the website looked like on that date. Some of the link even still work.
