Season 1 Format

A few notes about differences between the "old" TMBL and this new league:


1) All teams will be real minor league team names.  To figure out what team you'd like to use, here are some ideas:

      a) go here, then hover over the TEAMS link in the upper right and start browsing.  

      b) If you are into cool logos, and want a team with a cool one, try these links:

            http://www.hdsportsguide.com/news/2009/top-ten-minor-league-logos/

            http://www.sportslogos.net/sport.php?id=2  click under the minor league baseball logos area by choosing a league like "Carolina League"

Okay, hopefully those links help.   

Again, we are starting over...just as I "made everyone" take on a "less than premiership" English football team name, I'm doing the same here.  For a few reasons like:

-  We're starting over

-  Minor league baseball logos and team names are really cool and represent that "grass roots" of America's pastime...often they represent something unique and interesting about that town.

-  We have some actual cool looking logos to use on site

-  Maybe, just maybe, you'll end up following your real life minor league team and/or go to a game sometime.

Please, no pedestrian choices like the "Iowa Cubs" or "Springfield Cardinals".  There's a wealth of cool ones out there...find something that suits you.

Logos/team names are a first come/first served basis.  When you tell me your new team name...I know you are playing.


2) I believe we'll be above 14 teams...and because of that we're going to use both the NL and AL players (so all players in Major League Baseball).  So that means "better pitchers and hitters" likely...rather than a more realistic major league team where you have some good players and some not so good players.  

This allows us though to have more teams (ideally getting to around 24 or so).

As an aside, I hate the DH...we won't be using it. 


Those are really the key basics.

The draft will start at the end of April and run until the end of May with about 6 players being selected per team in each "draft session".

If you'd like to play I'd like to hear from you within a week (by the end of next weekend or so) with your team name.  And I may say "pick a better one" if you come back with a team nickname that's the same as a major league team.  

Feel free to comment/discuss on this thread.
