The Encore Twist- 100m cap

Welcome to the Encore Twist, a tribute to those players who are finally hanging them up.  There are so many great ones leaving.   What will NY baseball be without Rivera? Will Colorado baseball ever be the same without Helton?  We can hold off the blues a bit by focusing on these great retirees in the Encore Twist League.

RULES:

Step 1- Choose a player from the list of players below who have left the game as of the 2014 season (hereinafter referred to as “Primary Players.” )

Step 2- identify your Primary Player’s debut game and final game (found via hyper links listed on all player pages at baseball-reference.com)  and claim your Primary Player in the Forums by referencing his name next to the teams  that played in his debut game and final game.   It’s first come first serve.  The Primary Player you select is unique, but only as a basis for your team, and not as a player in the league.  That is to say that if I select Todd Helton as my Primary Player, other owners may still roster Helton if he is part of their player pool.

Step 3 - Create a team using any player from any of the four teams that played in your Primary Player’s debut game and final game, twisted to any year of their career.  Your player pool is not limited to players that actually played in the debut game and final game.  You may select any player that appears on the rosters for the teams that played in the debut game and final game.

Step 4- Make sure your Primary Player is on your team. 

Step 5- Your home stadium must be one of the home stadiums of one of the four teams in your player pool.

Example:

If I selected Roy Oswalt, my player pool would consist of :

2001 Astros  (debut game)

2001 Expos (debut game)

2013 Rockies (final game)

2013 Dodgers (final game)
