1928 History Rewritten Progressive League
We need one new owner and could handle two!
The History Rewritten was established 6 years ago by NailOne and we are still going strong 43 seasons later. One of our owners has decided to cut back; we also have a duplicate owner that would be willing to let his team go to a good owner. The available teams will be described in the following post. We are finishing our 1927 season by mid-August and will be getting ready for the 1928 season just as soon as possible. Join us as we play our way through the history of ML baseball.
The History Rewritten Theme is a progressive, partial roster keeper theme that started with the 1885 season with plans to work our way to the present day baseball season (some years down the road). As a first season owner/GM you'll be exempt from the 13 keeper rule as we want you to build a team with your vision.
The History Rewritten Progressive Theme league is founded on:
1.) $80 MM salary cap (penalties apply, but not for 1st year of new owners)
2.) Returning 13 "keepers" carried over to the next season for a sense of franchise
3.) One round rookie draft every season (one round for each league)
4.) Drafted players are exclusive to a team within each league (total of 15 exclusive players allowed per team - 5 pitchers max)
5.) No AAA, clones nor DH on a team
6.) Trades -- Ok, but exclusive players are traded only within a league
7.) WW okay, but must stay within in theme year (cannot be exclusive players)
8.) Exclusive stadiums in each league

We have our own private forum site, so if you can't see these links please let me know and I we'll grant you access.
What makes us different?
1.) A salary cap (to test your research & GM skills)
2.) A 13 keeper requirement (can you build a dynasty, a one shot wonder or will you struggle to fit within the cap?)
3.) Exclusive players list (draft to build a team, without wading through months of draft threads)
4.) Salary cap penalties for missing the keeper requirement (display your planning & GM skills)
5.) A number of committed owners that enjoy the league (usually one or two new players every other season -- fairly stable, fun bunch)
We've got a good core of guys that play season after season and hope to be the longest running progressive theme at WifS. Come test your GM skills with a great bunch of owners.
