I am interested in starting a league in Fresno, CA. I envision it to be mostly online through one of the major providers but meet every 2-4 weeks as arranged to socialize, talk baseball and tease each other about the standings.
It can either be a free or pay league depending on the consensus. (I like sportingnews.com as the provider (same as foxsports.com and mlb.com). They do both free and pay leagues and the free league even gives prizes (although with very long odds of winning). The pay leagues profit for sportingnews is reasonable and they include free live scoring.
I would go with a different provider if the majority rules, however. I do not plan to make any money off this, if a pay league. I would just open the league, distribute the league password and then I believe each person could log on the providers website and register, pay individually. The provider would pay the prizes.
IF INTERESTED E-MAIL ME AT mailto:firstname.lastname@example.org
