PostHeaderIcon Celebrating 21 Years Of BoxScore Baseball Ultimate Leagues

Back in 1995 BoxScore Baseball created its Ultimate Leagues. The purpose of these lifetime leagues was to offer owners an experience that would more closely resemble the owning and the operation of an actual Major League Baseball team.  Currently, in 2016, BoxScore Baseball hosts 5 Ultimate Leagues.  Here are 10 interesting facts about these leagues:

  1. The BoxScore Baseball owners who have won the most Ultimate League pennants in history are Tony Nosis (13), Todd Lammi (11), Gerry Scotto DiMarco (10), Ken Patten (10), Gregg Janoff (8), and Bob Wilfore (7).
  2. Currently competing in BoxScore Baseball’s Ultimate Leagues are some of its most senior members. Joining BoxScore Baseball in 1993 were Bob Wilfore (UL1, UL2, UL3, UL4, & UL5), Gregg Janoff (UL3 & UL5), Ron Pennington (UL2), and Ken Patten (UL2). Joining in 1992 was Scott Nadler (UL4 & UL5). Joining in 1991 were William Blais (UL3) and Vernon Fong (UL3). And joining in our inaugural season in 1990 was Bill Philp (UL5).
  3. The only two owners in BoxScore Baseball history to win at least one Ultimate League pennant in all 3 decades–the 90’s, the 00’s, and the 10’s–are Bob Wilfore (’99, ’03, ’06, ’07, ’08, & ’10) and Ken Patten (’96, ’97, ’00, ’01, ’02,’03, ’05, ’08, & ’11).
  4. Arguably, the most powerful Ultimate League ever assembled was the original version of UL3 drafted back in 1997. That league consisted of 5 future Hall of Famers. The owners who made up that league have thus far combined to win a staggering 15 National Championships: Charlie Wiegert (’91), Gerry Scotto DiMarco (’97), Ken Patten (’00 & ’10), Gregg Janoff (’14 & ’15), George Caballero (’93, ’94, & ’98), and Todd Lammi (’99, ’00, ’01, ’02, ’03, & ’04).
  5. Presently, there are 7 former BoxScore Baseball National Champions competing within the Ultimate Leagues. They are Gregg Janoff (’14 & ’15), Tony Nosis (’09 & ’13), Bob Wilfore (’06 & ’08), Ken Patten (’00 & ’10), Brian Scott (’13), Lance Smith (’10), and Bill Philp (’90).
  6. There are 8 current Ultimate League owners who have been Super Megabucks League champions: 3-time winner William Blais (’04, ’13, & ’14), 2-time winners Thomas Bonds (’02 &’07) and Bob Wilfore (’08 & ’13) and 1-time winners Rick Garlinghouse (’15), Scott Nadler (’12), and Paul Hachey (’11), Lance Smith (’07), Gregg Janoff (’02).
  7. Ultimate League 1 began its existence with 6 different pennant winners in its first 6 seasons. Remarkably, in the league’s 17-year history, there have only been 2 repeat winners: Gregg Janoff (’00 & ’01) and Tony Nosis (’12 & ’13).
  8. More than any other Ultimate League, UL4 has been a league of dynasties. First, it was Gerry Scotto DiMarco winning 4 straight pennants between 1998-2001. Then, it was Todd Lammi winning 5 pennants in 6 years between 2004-2009. And finally, it has been Tony Nosis who is on a current streak of winning 4 pennants in 5 years between 2011-2015.
  9. Current UL4 owners Bob Wilfore and Doug Kline have been in the league for all 19 consecutive seasons since the league’s inception.
  10. In 2015, the current owners in UL5 combined to win half (7 of 14) of all of BoxScore Baseball’s total pennants: Tony Nosis (UL1, UL3, & UL4), Miles Eikenberry (UL5), Bob MacLeod (Megabucks), John Thell (Musial), and Rick Garlinghouse (Super 2)
