THE THROWBACK LEAGUE

The Throwback League is a once a week podcast that’s essentially a March Madness-style tournament played out over 48 weeks. The World Series winners between 1974-2006 all make the tournament; and 16 at large pennant winners too. They’ll square off bracket by bracket -- the game results are simulated by the WhatIfSports algorithm and are “broadcast” by Josh. He’ll take the box score results the computer spits out, go into a studio and do a radio re-creation.
