A League of Their Own: World Series Predictive Programming

We found another fine piece of World Series predictive programming thanks to a discovery by our reader Wayne who happened to watch the 1992 film A League of Their Own, the story of the All-American Girls Professional Baseball League (AAGPBL) created during World War II and the Rockford Peaches, a team that favoured theatricality over technical skill.

In the movie the AAGPBL is created by fictional Cubs owner Walter Harvey and the gals try out at Harvey Field in Chicago. In reality the All-Girls League was created by Philip K Wrigley, the actual former owner of the Cubs and namesake of Wrigley Field. So with regards to Hurricane Harvey (the costliest tropical cyclone on record) smashing up Houston a few weeks before the World Series, it’s a very interesting name choice, seeing as the Astros won the championship after the Cubs. Seeing as Matt Harvey of the New York Mets (the pitcher who was benched after his 111th pitch in the 111th World Series on 11/1) was the first to pitch against Houston after the flood, and all this stuff about Harvey Weinstein.

Historically inaccurate, the Rockford Peaches win the World Series in 7 Games, another Cinderella story, just like the Astros who were worst in the league when Sports Illustrated said they’d be 2017 World Champions – a feat they accomplished after Houston was flooded by Harvey and the city came together to overcome all odds and bring home the Commissioner’s Trophy. *Roll credits*

Now, Wayne’s initial big find is that A League of Their Own is set in ’43 and released exactly 304 months before the Astros won the World Series, a perfect inverse with All-American Girls Professional Baseball League =403. We’re reminded that each team scored 34 runs in these World Series that finished exactly 3 years 4 months (counting days between) after that Sports Illustrated issue dated 30 June 2014 that read Baseball’s Great Experiment =143. Even if we keep it to the standard count it’s 3 years 4 months 3 days including end date after the SI Prophecy.

  • One Hundred Thirteenth World Series =434. Astros World Series =1434. 
  • Twenty Seventeen World Champion =3400. The Houston Colt Forty-Fives =340. Houston =34. The Astros =34. Houston Texas =1034. Twenty Seventeen =1134. Astros =43 and they won 4-3. MLB =43. 

Tropical Cyclone =340. Harvey =34. The Peaches play in Rockford Illinois =1134 and the entire cast is 34/43 friendly: Tom Hanks =43 plays former Cubs slugger Jimmy Dugan =43. Geena Davis =34 plays Hinson =34/43. The film was directed by Penny Marshall =314. Marshall =34 was born in ’43. Garry Marshall =143/304 was born in ’34 and plays candy bar magnate Walter Harvey =134/314 the maker of the fictional Harvey Bar =143. Garry Kent Marshall =403 just died last year, 1 year 3 months 14 days before the Astros WS win. The actual women’s team that won the World Series in in 1943 was the Racine Belles =1314. Tropical Cyclone =1314. 

Houston Twenty Seventeen =334. The Houston Colt Forty-Fives =334. And wouldn’t you just know it, Garry Marshall was born 30,304 days before the November 1st Game 7 Final.

We find another gem long count based on a date given up on the Wikipedia page: “On December 19, 2012, it was announced that the film would be preserved as part of the United States National Film Registry.” From that date to the Astros World Series was 4 years 10 months 13 days, yet another big Pi sequence, as the previous post covers.

But the thing about that duration is it’s also exactly 254 weeks, which as we see above is a perfect match with the exactly 25 years 4 months between the movie’s release and Astros’ World Series victory. Garry Marshall died 1254 weeks after the film release. Carlos Correa =254. Colt Forty-Five =254. The Colt Forty-Fives =452. 

And we can add a few more 113s to the list for the 113th World Series: Peaches =113 played at Harvey Field =113 with Geena Davis’ character Dorothy Dottie Hinson =113 and the real life AAGPBL had a total lifespan of 11 years 3 months. 

  • Sports Illustrated released a commemorative issue of their prediction titled Baseball’s Great Prophecy =113 instead of the original ‘Baseball’s Great Experiment’ header with the call: Your Two Thousand Seventeen World Series Champs =1103. Dodgers Astros World Series =113. And another synch with the actor who played Harvey the candy magnate, Garry Marshall was born on 11/13. 

Now if we count from Marshall’s date of birth to the day before Game Seven we see that’s 30,303 days. This resonates because not only does that Sports Illustrated call equate: Your Two Thousand Seventeen World Series Champs =3330. The issue is also dated 3 years 3 months 3 days before the Playoffs began. World Series =1333. And we covered previously with regards to the NASA/Disney connections in Houston/LA that on the day the Dodgers last won the World Series, 20 October 1988, Disneyland =133 (with its private Club 33) had been open for 33 years 3 months 3 days. And the team from the movie: Rockford =333 Peaches =33

Houston Astros World Series =1191. Another very curious detail is that Harvey was the first major hurricane to make landfall in the United States since Wilma in 2005, the most intense tropical cyclone ever recorded in the Atlantic basin. Not only is the name Wilma associated with the Flintstones, another Hanna-Barbera production like Jetsons, but it heralded the last and only other time the Houston Astros made the World Series, dissipating the day before Astros lost to the Chicago White Sox.

The problem here though is aside from the Harvey references, there’s far more Cubs associations to suggest the 2016 World Series. So we run the numbers there and find the movie released exactly 1270 weeks before the Cubs =270 won their first World Series in 108 years. Chicago Cubs =127, in the Kabbalah method, which we can give another point to after further validation like this – an example of how I’ve come to trust my methods through experimentation.

  • Cubs =27. Peach =27. Madonna =127. Geena Davis =172. The Rockford Peaches =172. Garry Marshall =72. MLB =27/72. Major League Baseball =72. And that number, if it’s tied into all World Series, we find Astros =27 winning 12 years 7 days after their 2005 WS loss, immediately preceding Hurricane Wilma =207/72. 

The Rockford Peaches =108 with the letter R=108 on the hat playing in Rockford Illinois =108 hinting at the 108 year drought for The Cubs =108. Philip K Wrigley =1080. Houston Astros World Series =108. And this is why looking back matters, to better predict the future.
