What's the biggest league you guys have been in?

Postby master_herm » Thu May 22, 2008 5:40 am

Just wondering what the maximum size is for a fantasy baseball league. I had the crazy idea of trying to start a 32-team league the other day (each team is a different MLB team) but I'm not sure if it could work as a fantasy league. The biggest problem I'd see is lack of serviceable players and an uneven draft - but if anyone has had success with huge leagues before, please let me know as this is something I'd really love to try out!

Very hard to find that many good owners. Better to do a 12 team AL only or something, so you can keep the quality of owners high.

Let's assume I can find that many (I know of 2-3 other 12-team baseball leagues right now that mine could potentially merge with). I'd also like to keep it a mixed league, in order to have every player involved. What do you think is the biggest size mixed league I could get away with, logistically (again, assuming quality of ownership isn't a limiting factor)?

I wouldnt do much past 20/22, as your draft will take days.

I'm in a 21 team league. Our auction took 13 hours and that's with every team having 5 keepers.

Played an 18-team, mixed league for a couple years. It was fun.
