One event the League hopes to unveil during this milestone year is a record book of team and player statistics. Annual statistics have been uncovered for all years except for two: 1978-79 and 1984-85. Anyone with copies of stats from those two seasons please contact Roger Kelly at rogerkelly@cableone.net.
