The EARLY YEARS

Final Player Standings- 1955 thru 1999

For several years now I have wanted to add to the site the Final Player Standings for all of the years that the game existed prior to taking it to the internet in the Summer of 2000. I realize that many of our current players, especially those that have joined us since 2000, would have little interest in this old data and it is a daunting task as there are 40 years worth of type written data - nearly 6,500 lines of individual player data - most of it occurring before the game was first mechanized in 1986, and during some of that period the game was much bigger than it currently is.

At any rate the work began in June 2008 and we are, once again, indebted to Nelson Slagle for his help, first in deciphering the first few years, then for searching out and recreating two years which I had misplaced and for locating and retyping two old newspaper articles about our game that appeared in the Long Beach Independent, Press-Telegram back in the mid-'60s and finally for having the patience to proof read every page of data.

The Early Years were completed in December 2008 and now all 40 (92 pages) of the Early Years are available, including three newspaper columns from the Long Beach Independent, Press-Telegram and the Los Angeles Times and a 1964 letter from Maury Allen of the New York Post.
