 If you like researching teams, this league may be for you... Take any player in the WIS database from 1885-2012 who played at least 2 seasons... then take his first and last teams as listed in http://www.baseball-reference.com/teams/ and twist any player who appears on the 2 rosters. Your bookend player must be on your team and you can use any season of his.  No 200K exemptions... twist only the players that appear on the 2 rosters.
Using Babe Ruth as an example, your player pool would be from the 1914 Red Sox and 1935 Braves, twisted to any season of course. Players are only exclusive for the purpose of making teams and can appear on other team's rosters. Choose any stadium your bookend player called home at any point in his career.


BLACKLIST... the bookend players from the first 20 seasons are blacklisted as bookend players... they can still appear on rosters for this season.

Salary Cap $120M
Yes to DH
No to AAA, WW, clones, trades or live play
Injuries turned off
Random realignment
Choose a stadium your Bookend guy called home at any point in his career


When signing up, list your bookend player's first and last team/seasons.
