It rains in Southern California

One of the joys of learning a new game is coming across results that you’ve never seen before.

With runners on first and third and Glenn Hoffman up to bat in the seventh inning of game #53 in my 1982 California Angels replay using APBA Baseball, I rolled a 13:32.

This result was a first for me:

A PRN of 23 with runners on 1st and 3rd in the 7th inning resulted in a rainout of this game in my 1982 California Angels replay.

The game took place in Anaheim, and I tried (in vain) to find a list of all rainouts in Angels Stadium history. I know there couldn’t have been more than a couple dozen, tops. If anyone knows where to find this data, it would be greatly appreciated.

For what it’s worth, according to Weather Underground there was exactly 0.00 inches of precipitation in Anaheim in June of 1982.

I prefer to believe that in this alternate history, there was a butterfly in China or a six-year-old boy in El Monte whose smallest gesture altered the world irreversibly.

  1. Where can I find a scoresheet like the one your using?

  2. How are you enjoying your APBA replay with the Angels? Is it a lot different from the Strat game you have played for so long? I enjoy following your blog so I hope your replay continues….keep on rolling the 66\’s!!!
