Mantle World will be rolling into season 28 sometime in a couple of weeks (February 27- March 1 or so).  Chronologically, it is the second oldest world in all of HBD and will be the first private world to roll to season 28.

Mantle was without a doubt the finest public world in all of HBD for it's first 17 seasons and has since become private, making us one of the finest private worlds in all of HBD. We traditionally have among the lowest turnover from season to season (high of 7, low of zero) of all HBD worlds (public or private), and have had 9 original owners who have been here since day one through our first 27 seasons. We've even had a couple of original owners come back after spending a couple of season away from HBD altogether.

The average tenure of our 32 current owners is 15.0 seasons in Mantle.  This includes 13 owners who have 20+ seasons of commitment to Mantle World.  We've also never had a team repeat as World Series champions through the first 27 seasons.

Mantle is world #5, and consistently sims within minutes of the start of each cycle. You can set your watch by us!

Since turning private, Mantle has adopted the following four rules that all owners are required to abide:
  1. There is a four-season rolling minimum win requirement of 55/120/185/260.  Failure to meet this requirement will result in forfeiture of the franchise to a new owner at the end of the season.
  2. After the trade deadline has passed, teams may place no more than 7 players on the waiver wire at any one time.  This is to avoid flooding the wire with players in order to try to "sneak" players through after the deadline.  First offense results in a warning.  A second offense will result in forfeiture of the franchise to a new owner at the end of the season.
  3. Owners are expected to keep their minor league pitching staffs in good order, i.e. no running chronically fatigued pitching staffs at any level.  An owner in violation of this rule will be given an opportunity to set things straight.  Failure to address or correct the problem within a reasonable amount of time without a valid explanation will result in forfeiture of the franchise to a new owner at the end of the season.
  4. The amount of cash received by a team in a trade cannot exceed the total amount of salary being received by that team in that trade.
Right now, we have no known opening for S28.  If you are interested in being placed on our waitlist, please either post here or send me a sitemail.

I'll add my name if a new guy is okay. I have one completed season.

My preference would be somebody with more experience.  I'll add you to the list for consideration, but I'm not promising anything at this time.

In addition to the one confirmed opening, I also have two other possible but unconfirmed openings.  Still need some more interested owners to add to the list.

We have a second confirmed opening.

I still have not heard from two owners, so I'm still collecting names for the waitlist.

One of the possible additional available teams in in the LCS, so it's a quality team.

WS just ended.

We have one missing owner.  We need one new owner immediately to approve and get started.

If it's still open, I'll take it.

Join so MikeT doesn't have a stroke.

Now that I think about it, I'm not sure that's much incentive.
