One Game Playoff

Since Milwaukee and Applachian ended in a tie, there will be a one game playoff.  The winner advances to the playoffs, the loser goes home.  The sim will be run tomorrow night.

Trivia Question:
This sim, we'll be dealing with births and burials.  Two questions:

1.  A dozen major leaguers have been born in the Netherlands.  One of them, Bert Blyleven, made it to the Hall of Fame.  Aside from Blyleven, which of these dozen has the longest major league career?

2.  One major leaguer is buried in France.  Who is he? (Hint:  If you know how he died, you know why he's buried there...)

First correct answers in the #random channel on Slack gets 75 Commissioner Points.

Next Sim:  Thursday night, for the one game playoff.

Playoffs will begin on Sunday night.
