This season draft the best hitters available in the database, but all your pitchers must come from the same franchise. You may use any pitcher in your franchise's history.

Franchises are not exclusive and there is no limit on how many times a franchise is used.

Remember, American League franchises didn't exist before 1901. All pre- 1901 teams are part of a NL franchise or a defunct franchise. See http://www.baseball-reference.com/teams/ to verify your franchise's history.

This is a public league, so it's first come, first serve.

Cap is $160M

No clones, WW, AAA, or trades,

DH is used in both leagues.

Your stadium must be from your franchise.

Live play, next series only.

I'm going with the Dodgers this season. Who wants to play?

Why cant we make the franchises EXCLUSIVE, there are more than enough franchises to go around?  Just curious, how many double ups are allowed?  It would be a shame to have more than say - 6 teams - with the same franchise?

Im IN & I will take the Cubs!  Good thing this is a 160M league!

We've done probably 10 of these leagues, hitting or pitching, and this way seems to work pretty well. No franchise seems to dominate and everyone can pick the one they want.
