I'm sure that most of you as well as myself have noticed that a lot of our owners are dealing with cancer or some other major ailment amongst their friends, family or themselves.  Myself included having been a survivor and losing many family members to that dreadful disease.  I sent an e-mail to wis and my proposal is this that we start a 24 team league and each owner contributes a minimum of $10 to be held by WIS and the world series owner has that money donated to their charity of choice.  And if this goes over well the winner also chooses the next theme for the league.


Since this is a family oriented idea.  My choice for theme is that at least 2 members of your team have to be related and exclusive to your Team along with exclusive stadium.  Can be any 2 members of families including cousins and in-laws, uncles and nephews.  Once that family is they are exclusive to team owner.

Families will be chosen in draft form once we have 24 members signed up and paid for.  Will have numbers 1 through 24 run through random.org and they will have choice of family or stadium then reverse order for round 2.  After that no blacklisted players,

110 Million salary cap
No DH
40 live game min.
trades allowable except core players (your family of choice)
No Injuries
6/4 Random AAA

Families can be found at baseball-almanac.com

I welcome other suggestions.

Unfortunately, due to a number of complications Whatifsports is unable to help with this project so it is being put on hold for now until I can figure out a way to do something about this.

ok last chance on purchasing raffles for my mothers charity event. Raffles are 3 for $5 and have so far over 105 prizes including a 100 WIS gc, lebron jerseys,wade jerseys,carson palmer jersey, johan santana jerseys,taveras from islanders,etc. sitemail if you have an interest in helping out. If you live in NY or close you can RSVP me by 3/15. The event will be held at the coram bowling alley on March 23rd from 930-midnight. You can come down and buy raffles without the rsvp,however if you wish to bowl (20 for 2 games and includes shoes) please let me know by the 15th..all proceeds from raffles go directly to my mothers care and comfort (esophageal cancer).Thanx for all the guys that have already bought raffles and are attending,and I hope to see you all very soon.
Thank you all for your time,
Rob aka verynice
