As you're browsing the WIS classifieds today...please consider taking a 1924 team in the All Time Progressive (ATP) League

The ATP is about to begin its 40th season of play!

The available team - Dayton - has extensive depth at the plate as well as on the mound - primed to be a strong contender in it's division this season as well as the seasons in the near future

THE LEAGUE IS THE OLDEST SINGLE SEASON LEAGUE IN WIS THAT STARTED PLAY WITH THE 1885 SEASON - .This is a single season progressive league that plays two parallel leagues - the NL and AL - with both playing the current - in this case 1924 - season. The leagues function separately except for the champion of each league playing in the World Series. There are 10 teams in each league which are formed from the players of the 16 real life teams. This allows for ample players for doing a single season at a time progressive league during this era.

Another way of understanding is that there will be a 1924 Ty Cobb in the NL and a 1924 Ty Cobb in the AL

The league uses the 5-5-5-5 WIS format with 4 of the 20 teams making the playoffs

There is no AAA and no waiver wire. Trading is only allowed within each league.

Unlike some progressive leagues, the ATP uses a formula for determining the draft order (2 times the current mid-season team salary) + (1 time the keepers salary) – the wins at game 162). In short, the league rewards winning by a team improving it’s draft slot. THERE IS NO REWARD FOR LOSING. This formula serves to avoid the tanking issues many progressive leagues face.

The league offers strategy challenges in trying to build a lean and mean team....a delicate balance to achieve

There is no cap on the number of keepers (up to 25).

If you are interested in taking ownership of the team, please post your interest and sitemail me. Also, feel free to send any questions you might have about the league.

Thanks for looking
