Next, we created a poll for each RASG on which we posted the candidates for each position in each league, with their first-half stats.
We also benefited initially from a blog post and front page appearance on B-R, which led to over 1,000 votes cast in the very first RASG. By the third RASG, it finally dawned on us to maintain an email opt-in list so we could contact confirmed voters of previous RASGs, to remind them to both vote in the new RASG and to read the results and game accounts posted at Seamheads.com after the games were simmed and written up by Mike.
The voting for each RASG began on a Friday and ran for two weeks, and included an initial announcement and two reminders to vote for that RASG.
In one case, the Yankees' Bob Meusel was elected as the starting left fielder to the 1926 RASG, but in real life he had broken his left ankle sliding into a base in late June, putting him out for six weeks.
As it so happened, in the majority of RASGs, there was at least one starter voted in who would not have been able to play that day because of injury or otherwise; the 1922 RASG saw four injured elected starters who needed to be replaced in this fashion.
At the same time, voting for the next RASG would have commenced and this voting/selection process would repeat itself.
Once Mike received the roster for a year's RASG, he would begin the simming process by creating a new historical league in OOTP corresponding to the season in which that game was to take place.
Once the rosters were filled, Mike would create starting lineups and depth charts based on RASG voting by the "Knowing Fan." Batting orders would be constructed contingent upon where the players batted in their regular team's actual order, the handedness of the batter, and where his particular set of skills would be most useful during the game.
The 1917 series was played in New York at the Giants' Polo Grounds, in which the American League returned the favor to the National League and took two games out of three, with the first-ever RASG home runs hit by Phillies slugger Gavvy Cravath and Cubs keystone sacker Larry Doyle.
Eddie Collins dominated his competition throughout his RASG career by going 15-for-35, plus six walks, in 13 games that included two doubles, a triple, a home run, and eleven runs scored, resulting in a scorching slash line of .429/.512/.629, the best for any All-Star with over 40 plate appearances, real or retro.
On the other hand, there are some Hall of Famers outside the Inner Circle playing during the RASG period who may have, in a practical sense, benefited from numerous appearances in All-Star Games had they been played between 1916 and 1932.
Coyote just before the real-life All-Star Games started, Hornsby would have placed on the RASG roster in 14 seasons, and started every one of them.
