Ray Andrews Memorial Baseball League (RAMBL) firstname.lastname@example.org
This Strat-O-Matic league was founded in 1994 as the Nameless Baseball League (NBL) and continued under that name for a decade. Following the 2003 season, the NBL was in real danger of disintegrating as many managers dropped out. The remaining managers were interested in continuing, but someone had to step up and lead in the recruitment of new managers to carry on. Ray Andrews, manager of the Oklahoma Outlaws, took the reins as League Commissioner and was instrumental in keeping the NBL alive. He served as Commissioner for many years following that and also helped to found a sister league, the Winter League Baseball (WLB). Ray suffered a massive heart attack in March 2017 and passed away following heart surgery one month later. Although Ray never won a league championship, his Outlaws did make it to the 7th game of the World Series on four separate occasions only to lose. He was a great competitor, but never complained when the ball didn't bounce his way. He was even better at maintaining composure and fairness in adjudicating matters as Commissioner. He was above all a friend that we will never forget. On April 28, 2017, to honor his memory and many contributions to the NBL, the league was renamed the Ray Andrews Memorial Baseball League (RAMBL).
