If you pick a team from the “A” list, your 2nd team must come from the “D” list. If you pick a team from the “B” list your 2nd team can come from either the “C” list or the “D” list. If you pick a “C” list team your 2nd team can from either the “B” list or the “D” list. Teams from the “D” list can be paired with any team from the “A”, “B”, or “C” lists.
 
There can be up to 5 instances of any franchise (excepting the banned Yanks). The combination of franchises, however, must be unique. For example if someone picks the Cardinals & Royals combo, 4 other owners can pick the Cardinals but they’d have to pair them with a franchise from the “D” list other than the Royals (and all different than each other). First come, first serve on the franchises and on unique combos.
 
 You can have 2 teams but they will be placed in separate leagues. Will initially do random alignment and then adjust to make sure owners don’t have 2 teams in the same league.
 
Make sure you review Baseball reference for franchise history: http://www.baseball-reference.com/teams/
 
Sign up here for your franchises.  I will choose 6th and will set up the league at that time.  Note:  League has now been set up.  Will site mail new owners as they sign up for a team here in forum.

I would like the A's (B) & O's (C) but since Orioles Parks I, II & III are not available, can I play in Orioles Park IV, which is on the same exact site as Orioles Park II & III?  If this is not OK, I will just have to play in one of the 4 PHIL A's ballparks?

Hi good_beef!  I think using Orioles Park IV sounds reasonable.  It is listed as being in use in 1901-02 and if it is on the same site as II & III it is very likely what the 1899 version was (or extremely close).  I will update the initial posting to let any future 1890s Orioles owners know it is OK to use Orioles Park IV.

The A's and 1890's Orioles are yours.  Welcome!
8/12/2013 5:53 PM
I'll take A's/White Sox.
8/12/2013 5:58 PM
Phillies/Dodgers, please
8/12/2013 7:42 PM
I'll try White Sox & Cubs combo...thanks
8/14/2013 6:07 AM
I'm going to select the A's and the Browns/Orioles as my 2nd team.
