With the release of the 2013 players imminent, it's time to kick start my favorite theme league, with a little bit of a twist by incorporating some countries in the State of Birth.

Choose an exclusive state(s)/country from the list below by posting the nickname in the forum.  Every player on your roster must've been born in your state(s)/country, even bench players & mop up RP's!

League rules:

  • Seasons: 1885-2013
  • Salary cap: $120 million
  • YES: Injuries (we're going to have lots of depth in this league!)
  • NO: DH, AAA, WW, Trade, Clones
  • Stadium:  Use any stadium located in your state(s)/country.  Otherwise, use a home park of any player on your roster.
  • SLL:  No requirements
  • Standard 24 team, 6 division, league with 3 division winners + Wild Card team make playoffs in AL/NL.
  • Alignment based upon geography.

I'll take California, my home state.
10/1/2013 10:00 PM (edited)
I will take Maryland/DC!
10/2/2013 4:43 PM
I'll do Pennslyvania
10/2/2013 5:12 PM
Gotta go with Texas!
10/3/2013 2:28 AM
We'll go with Ohio
10/3/2013 11:21 AM
sign me up for Stephen King - they'll probably suck, but I'm a masshole.
10/3/2013 1:28 PM
Even though there are over 600 players born on Mass, they don't really have that solid of a team other than Bagwell. Rhode Island has some nice players to supplement MA!
10/3/2013 1:29 PM
Looking at these teams further, I'm going to combine Iowa-Minnesota. Michigan could probably compete by themselves & Iowa needs a little support from their neighbors to the north. Call it the Big 10!

You're not kidding about that... IDK if I can fit Lajoie and/or Duffy into this cap though! Nice problem to have I guess...

I would probably  get in if you had Nebraska in there some where lots of good players If you add them to Missouri or Kansas count me in. a Kansas team by itself would suck. David Segui their best hitter????????

No Johnny Damon!
10/3/2013 3:00 PM
Maybe we should just go back to including all 50 states?!
