THIS LEAGUE WILL NOT START UNTIL 2012 PLAYERS ARE RELEASED!


I have managed several iterations of this league in the past, with different combinations of states/countries but this will be a true State of Birth league.  NO countries will be used!

Every player on your roster must have been born in the state you choose!  
NO duplicate states may be chosen so yours will be exclusive.


Sign up in forum on a first come, first serve basis.

League rules:
  • $100 million cap
  • Seasons:  1885-2012
  • NO:  DH, WW, Trades, AAA, injuries, clones*
  • Standard 24 teams, 6 divisions, etc.
  • SLL:  No restrictions or requirements
  • Must use stadium if one is available in your state.  Otherwise, use home stadium of any player on your roster.
  • Alignment will be by geography.
  • Include state in team name so we know where you're from!
*With regards to clones, I will allow players that have seasons as both hitters & pitchers to be used, ie Babe Ruth-Maryland, Bob Caruthers-Tennessee.

Off the top of my head I know you get Cap Anson, Dave Bancroft, Hal Trosky, Bob Feller, & Johnny Niggeling!

Would it be helpful if I listed some key players next to each state?
9/5/2012 9:35 PM
problem I am encountering is both anson and Trosky played first base.  Pitching looks good but have to make some offensive decisions
9/5/2012 9:44 PM
When I had Iowa I used Anson @ C. He only had about 86 passed balls but we made the playoffs!
9/6/2012 8:29 AM
I'd like to join..I want to go to Carolina(s) in my mind..
9/6/2012 10:31 AM
Thought a bout that but hank severeid was pretty good
9/6/2012 3:13 PM
I'd like to play with New York
9/6/2012 4:57 PM
Alabama, please
9/6/2012 8:21 PM
PA
9/12/2012 9:29 AM
You know what they say... Everything is BIGGER in TEXAS!  Gimme the Lone Star state!
9/12/2012 11:03 AM
Never Mind!  There is NO WAY I can fit a team under this LOW of a cap, especially with NO AAA to help out!  I remember why I HATE leagues like this, cuz with NO AAA, NO WW, NO Trades, NO backups & NO WAY to modify your lineup - All you can do is "SET IT & FORGET IT" lineup wise & let the sim gods do their work to RUIN a perfectly good team?  Raise the cap a little, or (my preference) give us Average or Above Average AAA players & I will think about joining, but As Is, Forget it!
