Boston Tea Party (BTP)
Leaffan10 takes over as commissioner at the start of Season 8. (09/09/09)
World is referred to as USA vs. the World in Classified threads. Owners are all veterans of HBD and/or the MLB SIM. Civility is preferred over trash-talking. Very competitive, pitching-oriented world... relatively few poor decisions in free agency, Rule V, drafting, so it can take a while to build up a team. Minor leagues are competitive, not trashed; exceptions are dealt with.
World was founded by mancunia (aka rob_dipper), but he in Season 3 and the mantle was passed to me. As we enter Season 6, one-half of the original 32 owners remain.
Owner Nationality: The AL has U.S.-based owners and the NL has international owners. Out of necessity, the definition of "international" can be discussed. Cities & Stadiums: AL owners must be located within the 50 U.S. states. NL owners are limited to foreign soil or states on the U.S. fringe (i.e., bordering Canada, Mexico or ocean). Stadiums with a "4" in their ratings are discouraged. Franchise Names: Should reflect the history or culture of your nation, or remind competing nations of their mistakes.
