Over the last few weeks, Major League Baseball has been simulating dream rosters that’ll face off in a bracket-style, 32-team tournament to crown the champ. Each matchup consists of a best-of-seven series simulated by Out of the Park Baseball 21.
This past week, the Dodgers faced the Marlins, winning the series in five games. You can check out the box scores from all five games here. Here’s a brief recap of the series, courtesy of MLB.com’s Ken Gurnick.
Robinson was 10-for-21 with five runs scored and Reese was 7-for-16 with six runs scored against Miami, with Reese and Gil Hodges homering in the series. Don Drysdale turned in the best pitching performance of the tournament with a three-hit shutout in Game 3.
In case you missed the full details a few weeks ago, here’s a quick background on the tournament.
The MLB Dream Bracket is a 32-team best-of-seven simulation featuring all-time teams for each of the 30 current Major League franchises, as well as teams consisting of Negro Leagues Stars and 25 & Under Stars. The 26-man rosters for each of the teams, compiled by the MLB.com beat reporters, consist of 15 hitters and 11 pitchers. For the simulation, players are rated using the average of their three best seasons on a single team. Rosters were constructed with balanced depth to specifically compete in a simulated regulation game.
