For years Jon ran a fantasy baseball league called the CLB (Computer League Baseball) that was famous for
its pornographic newsletters. This photo shows the six guys who won the championship in the first 11 years of the
league's existence.. Clockwise from center: Glenn Simon (holding championship plate), Dave Eck, Reese Timm,
Jon, Eddie Frierson, and Al Taylor.

Some notable figures from CLB history

CLB Dictator for Life, the unspeakably
evil Dr. Marcus Ringer.

Glendale Swaggering Stud owner
Joe Mullich, who installed himself
as the club's first baseman in a
desperate attempt to win the MVP Award.

Bangkok Obesquious Marauder of Death owner and toupee magante
Ken Summers.

CLB founder John Breckenridge (R)
presents the 1992 Church Plate to
the league's most unpopular
owner Marvin T. Runyan of the
Tennessee Valley Authority.

TVA slugger Terrible Herbst was
poised to be the greatest star in
CLB history until the constant
badgering from owner Runyan
derailed his career.

Nairobi catcher Felton Jones who
suffered a near career-ending injury
in 1992 when he slipped in a brick of
his own fecal matter, but came back to
be the most popular player in CLB history.

The greatest all-around player in
CLB history was Barstow's Stan Klunk,
who was paid starvation wages by the
team despite winning 6 MVP Awards
and 20 Gold Gloves.

Nairobi shortstop Bunt Dopabod, who played 2,842 consectutive games because of his psychopathic insecurity.

Christy Mathewson, who won more
games and struck out more batters than
any pitcher in CLB history despite
suffering from crippling drug addiction.

New England Clam Slammer owner Craven Morehead inspects the motion of his new pitching sensation Kammaniwannalaya. Morehead defied the "gentleman's agreement" within the CLB by signing a Hawaiian player.

Jacksonville BVD owner and noted pornographer John Kane escorts two employees to a game.

The legendary "Miracle Elvis" portrait in the CLB Hall of Fame.
It is said that one glance at the painting can cure any ailment.

The "Buddah Compuddah" (now on display at the CLB
Hall of Fame) which Basra owner Ken Summers always
used to make his draft picks. The team did not make the
Church Plate Series in the first two decades of its existence.

CLB Broadcasts

The CLB was notorious for its broadcasts of the All Star Game and championship Church Plate Series, which was a computer baseball game videotaped by pushing a camera up to the screen as a bunch of drunken guys wearing rubber masks provided inane play-by play. Some of the more popular announcers in CLB history are:

Sam Grunion
The voice of the CLB. and
a darned good lookin' man. Grunion was unable to
enjoy his success because
of his constant fretting over
the infidelities of his lovely
wife June, who was 40
years younger than him.

Johnny Schmarm
A hopeless alcoholic
legendary for his schilling
of sponsor Buttwiper Beer
and his insistence that
routine fly balls would
be towering homeruns
until they were actually in
the outfielders' glove.

Ebb Tide
A southern rube who
provided surprisingly
insightful commentary
despite rumors of his being
profoundly brain damaged. Known for calling broadcasts
in the nude.

Van "The Tap" DuBoise
The first person of color to
join the CLB broadcast
team, whose bitterness
at his harsh treatment when
he called radio broadcasts
for Negro League teams
was still very evident in
his commentary.

Sparky Jenson
Baritone color commentator
for CLB broadcasts, noted
for his hard-hitting interviews with CLB personalities.
Longtime lover of
Mt. Rainer Pugancious
Pilots owner Al Taylor.

Sum Dum Fuk
The greatest relief pitcher
in CLB history, Fuk would
provide color commentary
on post-game broadcasts
despite the fact that no one
understood what he
was saying.

Dave Hall
The superstar owner/
player/manager was the
most volatile figure in CLB history, and would frequently
threaten his fellow broad-
casters with an automatic
pistol during broadcasts.

Pigworthy Manhattan
By far the least popular
member of the CLB
broadcast team, Manhattan
was devastated by the death
of his longtime companion
Redd Foxx and spent the
remainder of his life vainly
campaigning to win an
Emmy Award.

Jeff Simon

The most unpopular figure in the history of the CLB by far was Jamaica Dreds owner Jeff Simon (left). It was a great day on August 21, 1993 when the hated Simon was brutally murdered by Dreds first baseman Torrance Dumplin (center), who decapitated the repulsive owner and donated the head to the CLB Hall of fame. The decaying head (right) remains the museum's most popular exhibit, although it is now displayed behind bulletproof glass to prevent visitors from pelting it with rotten vegetables and fecal matter.
