You must use a stadium your team played in that year.
Teams Assigned By Luck Of The Draw
You can use SimLive for the next game or next series, but don't jump ahead beyond that.
Name your team whatever you like.
We are startng over in 1969 for a second go around.
We use the DH only in odd-numbered years.
This is a progressive twist league beginning with the 1969 season. The divisions will be aligned by the winning percentage the team actually had that season. We use only the top 24 teams , dropping the remaining teams(if needed). It's possible that the teams left out may actually be a better "twist" team, but as always it is luck of the draw so you still play with whoever you get and like it. The way we align even the rotten teams have a shot at the playoffs, and we all know that anything can happen in the playoffs. Each season the divisions will be realigned according to the winning percentage the teams had. If there is a tie, we'll align them alphabetically by city name to fill the divisions.
Once we are full, I'll use the last 2 digits of your owner rating to give out the teams. The lowest number gets the best team. If there is a tie, I'll use the 3rd digit to break it, with the lowest getting the best team. Each year we'll get different teams using the same method.
It'll be a standard twist league which means you can use anyone who played for your team that season according to Baseball-Reference.com. You can use any season of their career as long as they made at least one appearance for your team that year. You can use any $200K player from any franchise to fill out your roster. You don't have to take the backups from your actual roster if you want to use $200K players instead. ($200K means $200K, not $201K. If you're taking someone who wasn't on your roster I don't want them to be able to help your team.)
The winner of the 2012 World Series(from our last version of this leauge) will become the commish for the 1970 season; we always get things started for the following season around the 100-120 game mark.
