This yet-to-be-named league is one that is focus on it's passionate franchise owners and their long-term commitment to taking their city's clubs through the ups-and-downs of a major league baseball team. This is a league that is extremely comprehensive, but not detailed oriented. We have a simple head-to-head scoring system that sends our four division winners to the playoffs. A simple take-it-or league it arbitration scale that allows flexibility and fairness.
Each franchise has a $100 million dollar salary cap and compiles their team with each offseason's Free Agency period held before each season that allows teams to bid (publicly) to sign a player for the greatest contract package (dollars X years).
One of the most important factors is the 25 player minor league rosters totaling to 400 minor league players deep over the entire league. It's deep enough where you won't be able to find a top flight prospect right away, but you can make daily adds to try and find a player before he breaks out as a big time prospect. So, you have to know, or learn, the who's who of the minor leagues in order to be successful. That's where the arbitration system comes in, which allows team to tender contracts with out arbitration scale system which takes place during the offseason. We conduct trades, players are waived, hold a minor league draft, league voting on rule changes, etc all during the offseason. So this is a league where it's not just for baseball season.
In fact our first item to complete is our 25 round minor league draft where any player with rookie eligibility can be selected! So take your franchise from nothing and shape it to your exact style as a manager and challenge yourself against the best! We are looking for very
experienced and active owners who have the time to put in on their franchise instead of making this one league out of three or four.
For more information, read our complete constitution that covers all of the details. Please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
and I will send it to you. We hope to start our minor league draft just after the holidays but won't settle for just any owners.Thank you.
edit: Just one thing to clarify, there is a $75 fee for this league, it is all paid out in prizes as detailed in the constitution.
