The CORKED BAT FANTASY LEAGUE is looking for three owners to replace three that we've lost touch with since the season ended and can no longer contact. These owners leave behind solid teams with plenty of potential for 2008 and beyond.
CBFL is a super active keeper league that requires plenty of activity. The league uses a contract system with salary cap and live auction draft. We also us a very deep minor league system.
Our draft dates are scheduled for the first and last SUNDAY in FEB at 3 p.m. ET. If you cannot attend our live draft, please do not apply.
There is no entry fee, though all owners share in the cost of the CBS Sportsline site, which keeps our stats for us. We cannot use Yahoo or other free services as they do not fit our system. Your share of this site fee is $8. This is the only time you will ever be asked for any type of money.
To apply for one of the vacant teams in our league, contact myself at CLegend33KP@aol.com or contact me live in AIM at CLegend33KP.
