The OOSL AL Homestead Grays



"Hey, big mouth! How do you spell triple?"

-After hitting a triple, Joe Jackson's response to a heckler who kept asking the illiterate player if he could spell "illiterate".-

 [  ] The Homestead Grays are a computer-controlled club.

 [  ] These Homestead Grays were one of the expansion franchises of 1996. They have been computer-controlled for all of their OOSL history. Their three-year American League career record stands at 252-210 for a .545 winning percentage -- good for fifth-best in OOSL history. They are 4-4 in post-season play, for a .500 winning percentage. They own one WildCard title. Their best season saw them win 88 regular season games.

 [  ] The Homestead Grays play at Forbes Field in Pittsburgh, and have always taken full advantage of that park's inherent tendencies. With teams built on pitching, speed and defense and eschewing the long ball, the Homesteaders have compiled a .594 winning percentage at home versus a .476 road mark! In their inaugural season, the Grays were at their schizophrenic best, posting a phenomenal .714 mark at home and a weak .429 road mark. Last year they edged over .500 on the road for the first time, winning 39 of 77 contests, good for a .506 mark.

 [  ] In the Grays three years of existence, 8 batters have topped the .300 plateau, and 4 of them, Ed Delahanty, Spot Poles, Arky Vaughn and "Turkey Mike" Donlin turned in those performances last year while leading the team to their first playoff appearance. Big Ed's 37 two-baggers and Vaughn's 13 triples were also team records set last season, when they scored 674 runs, 47 better than their next best mark.
