ORIGINAL 16 FRANCHISE LEAGUE

This league will use the 16 franchises from the 1901 season, the first year of both the National and American Leagues. To fill out your roster you must take 2 players from each decade as listed below. Your 25th player can be from any season of your franchise. No twisting. Seasons used must be from a season of your chosen franchise. Full or partial seasons are allowed as long as the player is listed as playing for your franchise.

110 mil salary cap
No clones
No AAA
No WW
No DH
No Squeeze Play Bunting
Trades are limited. You are allowed to trade players from same decade only so as not to disrupt the 2 from each decade rule. Also trade can't create a clone situation.
4 four team divisions
40 games must be played live to play in post season
All Playoffs must be played live

I will pick my franchise when we get to 8 to 10 owners signed up

Two Players from each decade as follows
1901-1909
1910-1919
1920-1929
1930-1939
1940-1949
1950-1959
1960-1969
1970-1979

No squeeze bunting...lol, that's the first time I've ever seen that.  Bravo.

But I'll lock up the Yankees.  Always wanted to have Jeter, DiMaggio and Ruth in the same lineup.
