Green Pasture Ghosts Progressive (Using the Diamond Legends Career setting)

Only deceased players are eligible to be drafted. Owners will participate in a 30 round draft for the first season. 25 players for the main roster, 4 players who will be AAA and a ballpark. Like the players only "deceased" ball parks can be used. The draft will be snake style with draft order determined randomly.

baseballreference.com will be the guide to how many eligible seasons a player has. For example Ted Williams played in 19 seasons. If you draft Williams he can play in the league for only 19 seasons. The Diamond Legends Career setting does not allow for a player like Babe Ruth or Bob Caruthers to have seasons in which they pitch and play the field. Ruth is only listed as a position player and Caruthers only as a pitcher.

This league may be difficult to fill so I am setting sights on a 16 team, 4 division league. We will have random alignment every season.

Trades are allowed. Trading of draft picks allowed only one season ahead.
Only one instance of player and ball parks allowed.

You must play 40 games live to be eligible for post season play.

Any questions or comments please post here or sitemail me.

Are you 100% certain the Diamond Legends Career Leagues are LIVE-compatible?
3/19/2013 6:56 PM
Or even compatible with the draft feature?  Or non-standard league alignments?

not telling you how to run your league but wouldnt it make more sense to have more of a limited pool say for example all those that died in certain yrs and keep adding new players each year  because if there isnt alot of new people being added to the draft pool  in a career prog then it becomes the same teams every yr  for a while till the great players retire but  ill probably will be in regardless

How does drafting new players in future seasons work?

With 16 teams there will be many players left to pick from in future seasons. I am now working on a players list. It wont be a definitive list as in some drafts but so far my research has shown there will be enough deceased players to easily fill 16 teams.

On the macabre side the "rookies" will be the players who pass away while we are playing a season and eligible for the next draft

We will also have a keepers/cuts list before every draft but I expect that early on most players will be keepers.
