I am very excited about the creation of this new venture. This league will be built with 16 teams.. The format of the league is H2H Each Category is a W/L/T. The league you are about to read below is for owners who are strong, patient, mature, highly engaged and sociable. This league is a " long-haul" marathon. League activity is year-round with full access to league site 365 days /yr.
I am seeking owners that are not "league collectors" and just adding this one to their stable of many leagues. I'm also not interested in a "casual fan" nor am I interested in the "set it and forget it" type. I am looking for owners who want to really entrench themselves and become highly involved in being part of a great league for a very long time. Having a great league is two fold: 1) A good setup that is challenging and 2) Owner involvement and dedication. There are lots of other good leagues on this forum to choose from, but I can tell you if you are looking for a long-term fantasy baseball league to get involved with from the very start this league will definitely present that opportunity to you! I assume if you are still reading this long-winded message you are intrigued and interested - so with that I will provide more details below along with the email address to get further league information and the league charter.

Please be advised and understand this is not a "first come - first serve" basis to gain ownership. There is a vetting process to this league. I want a strong league and will make the best possible ownership decisions that I feel are "best fits" based on interactions with potential league members.
The team theme of this league will be a nostalgic feel + a modern feel fielding old + current team names such as the Brooklyn Dodgers, New York Giants, St. Louis Browns, Cincinnati Red Stockings, Washington Senators, Philadelphia Athletics, Houston Colt .45's, Montreal Expos, New York Yankees, Boston Red Sox etc etc. Only one city can be represented by team ( exception to New York and Chicago themed teams.).

The categories scored offer a nice blend of balance between hitting and pitching. The theory behind the selection of categories you see is to maintain a healthy level of balance throughout the 16 teams and also give trading some real interesting thought.
We start 9 batting positions and 9 pitching positions. The theory behind the construction of lineups is to challenge owners on strategy and allow for flexibility. We do not set generic and basic "OF" for this very reason.
