16 participants will take turns owning each of the 16 original franchises. Each season you will get a different franchise and may select any season from 1901-2012. If a player played for more than one franchise in the season you selected, you can use only the partial season he played for your franchise. Thus every owner will get a turn owning the Yankees, Cardinals, Dodgers etc. Use the park used by your selected team

We will draft three players every season after that till we have filled out our rosters completely (however many seasons it takes or until we decide to start all over again). DH yes, no waiver wire. Trades welcome. Ballparks unique to each team. Much like our last setup but
