Although I've only played about 6 or 7 games with them, I've added my Atlanta Arcade Synopsis. They are quite the team and I'll be using them quite a bit more in the future. Only arcade team left is the Cubs, and Nick will be taking care of that shortly. It's good to finally finish up the Arcade writeups, given that we've had it for over a year now...
I've decided to make a single entry page for our RBI Baseball Tournaments - they were clutting the navigation bar so I put them in their own directory. I'm sure I broke a few links along the way, but I need to start cleaning the site up a bit. Don't take this as a precursor to getting 2002 Tourney pics online, we're still too lazy for that.

Alan Trammel ties the record for most homers in a game with 6 against Potsie. Kirk Gibson goes 5-6 with five homers. One great game - Potsie has Chili Davis (his best hitter and favorite player) up with two out and two on. Eric King throws a very stupid fastball and Chili pops it up for a 24-22 Detroit victory. Solid!!!

I've added a page for our personal RBI Records. There isn't much on there yet and some of the records may seem unimpressive. This is basically because we have never really kept records in all our years of RBI, so this is either from memory or contains recent feats. Hopefully I'll start making a note of new records and add them to the page. If not, it'll waste away like a couple of the other pages on here.
Ever since he won the 2002 RBI Tourney, Postie has been in a bit of a slump. Things have gotten so bad that I recently won five straight against him using only Stl and Houston. There are rumors of taking some time off, but lets hope Pots keeps on playing. Anyway, Vince Coleman stole home on him this week, adding yet another entry to the Potsie Hall of Shame.

It's been a pretty busy week so far on the RBI front. Most importantly, we have a new RBI site out there. Longtime forum member Greg Pines has started his own RBI site catered more towards curve pitch and their Belt Series championships. Though still a work in progress, it looks very good so far. The link is http://www.rbichampion.com. I also put his site on the Links Page. While there, I added some descriptions for some of the main RBI sites and removed a couple broken links. Since these smaller sites tend to drop off the face of the earth, I think I'll make a web copy of them all in case they go for good...
I also have some very good news regarding the availiblity of the RBI Arcade game. Right now, there is an EBay auction for the RBI Arcade Game. It ends in a few days, but expect to dish out $400-$500 when all's said and done. These don't come around too often though, so take a chance now or expect to wait awhile. I also recieved word of a pizza place in Santee, CA that has the arcade version of RBI for play. On that note, I also found a place that is making an RBI Arcade for someone. All the details can be found in the FAQ under Where can I play the arcade version of RBI? and Where can I buy the arcade version of RBI?
April udates were moved to the Archives and I even took the time to make sure I didn't break all the links.

Slow day at work, so I finally got some real updates in...
First and foremost, I'll temporarily be hosting the info for Mike Beales upcoming RBI Tourney in Chicago. He's having some access problems while away from school so check here for updates, not the iwu.edu site. When things go back, I'll let you know and change all the links...
After getting my ass kicked up and down by Nick on Saturday night, I've wrote a scathing synopsis of the Dodgers Arcade Team. This leaves only the Cubs and Braves to go as far as arcade writeups. Hopefully Nick will finish the Cubs sometime soon and I'll tackle the Braves when we play our next round of Arcade.
June 16, 2002I've added a search feature to dee-nee.com. It'll search all the data on the main site (not the forums, it has its own search that works quite well) and is powered by google. If you don't use google as your search engine, you need to change ASAP. It is, without a doubt, the most important site on the Internet. The search really isn't needed, but it was free and adds the all important geek factor.

Happy Birthday Wade Boggs!!!

I've been hella lazy with updating the page, my apologies. Working a bunch lately. There are still no Tourney 2002 photos or writeups yet, or 2001 for that matter. I'll blame Lips, since it's his job to get the pics off the video camera...
Potsie and I have a great rivalry going with Saint Louis (me) vs San Fran, best of three. It always goes down to the end and has made things a bit more exciting. As a result of my recent STL overload, I've updated their team page to include all the recent strategies I've picked up. Also gave John Morris his proper nickname of Blank..
Minor updates - gave Don Robinson his nickname (The Admiral) on the San Fran page and added The Pettis to the glossary. Moved the March 2002 updates over to The Archives. I do expect one or two updates in the next week, so stay tuned...
