MLB 108649
 

Baseball-Reference now has boxscores going back as far as 1914
(April 13, 1914-Sept 30, 2013): www.baseball-reference.com/boxes

When you sign up, I'll assign you a random date (via random.org, calendar generator). Go to b/r.com to view the box scores from that date in history.
 
The player could appear as a pinch runner, pinch hitter, etc - as long as you see his name in the boxscore, he's eligible.

Caveat: I will ensure every date has at least seven, (7) games played that day to ensure you have a sufficient pool of players to draw from. If not, I will generate a new date. 

The particulars:
  • $70m cap
  • 200K-300K players can fill your roster, even if they did not appear in a box score on your date. They must come from your year.
  • No clones, no WW, no trades, no twists, no live play, no twists
  • YES AAA,  below average,  6/2
  • No DH
  • Ballpark must have been played in on your date
  • Alignment - Random
     

The first willing person to sign up can generate my date and post it to the forum (there are a couple of options on Random.org - you can run three random sequences (4-9 for month, 1-31 for day and 1916-2013 for year) or use the date generator (set range to 4/1/1916 - 9/30-2013) - obviously rerun if you get a date that's out of range.
