    Oakland's Majority Plan from 1980 and on.

    The Middle of Baseball's Boom Era was joined in progress

    A Season might work, but well we ever known as is, so we will always know how what the sseason look like this so far this dynasty builds pride, so i started my file in 1975 so i'll fast forward to 1980 plus expansion, right?

    I'll get the league setup later.
