HTH league concept. Would anyone like to be involved next year or help me flush out the ideas and League Constitution?
# of teams - 15
# of divisions - 3
# of teams/division - 5
# of weeks of regular season games - 20
# of weeks each team plays - 18
# of byes each team has - 2
Offensive - 5 (Avg., HR, RBI, Run, SB)- categories subject to change by discussion
Pitching - 5 (Wins, Saves, ERA< WHIP, K) - subject to change
Home Field Advantage:
Each matchup, one team is assigned the home team. By midnight on Friday, one category must be designated by the home team as not counting for the upcoming week, making it that there are 9 categories that count in the standings. Each category counts for one game; this will mean that, with 9 categories per series (week) and 18 series, each team plays 162 games.
Teams play two weeks against each team in their divisions, and one week against each team from other divisions. This will be set so that each team in Division A hosts each team in Division B, which hosts each team in Division C, which hosts each team in Division A.
Subject to discussion, but I think it would be best to have lineup set by midnight Sunday night for the week.
2) Division (if same division)
3) Record in last 9 matchups
4) Cancelled Categories
5) Coin Flip
Matchups subject to home rules where teams with higher seed get home advantage (Division Winners get top 3 seeds). Qualifiers and matchups subject to discussion. Home Team also designates tiebreaker for playoffs.
