RANDOM CAPTAIN 25!

For our silver anniversary, we're going with captains who:

a) played 22 or more MLB seasons
b) have not been used in this theme previously

(List of 43 possible captains in next post)
 
After you get your captain you will draft one of his seasons, then draft 24 of his teammates from his entire career (no twisting) to fill out your roster.
 
OTHER RULES

90M cap
NO: CLONES, WW, TRADES, AAA, DH
Random Alignment (of course!)
Park must be one that your captain called home at some point in his career
Have your captain's name reflected in your team name

Once we're full, I'll ask a Hall of Fame owner not in this league to go to random.org and randomize a list of 24 numbers between 1 and 43.  The numbers 1-43 will represent the players in the post below; the order they appear in will determine which owner gets which captain.  That is, the first owner on the list below (me) will get the first number, the second owner (theneoffife) the second number, and so on.  Owners are listed below in the order they signed up.

To commemorate our 25th season, there will be $50 in prizes, broken down as follows:

$20 to WS winner
$10 to WS runner up
$10 to Best Team ERA
$10 to Most Runs Scored

NOTE: If I'm unable to obtain the credits from Admin, I'll substitute one full season team from my account for each $10 credit.
