We have rolled and are now taking applications from interested owners to join us for season 19. Our current openings are listed below
The Bigs has a great group of owners who return season after season and we have one of the best blogs in HBD. Check our league history and you'll notice little to no turnover from season to season. In the past, we've gone several seasons without having to replace a single owner at rollover.
Interested owners can sitemail me or simply post in this thread. Preference will be given to owners with experience and a winning history. We have a minimum win threshold of 50 games at the major league level, Anyone who fails to reach this mark will be removed from the league following the season's end. Also, see the right hand side of our blog for a short list of banned ballparks.
