Franchise 1 is in the AL East and has previously been owned since NABCL inception by randallball himself. (http://wisjournal.com/HBD/Pages/Popups/FranchiseProfile.aspx?fid=678
) This team is in a transitional phase, having two third-place finishes in a row after taking the East the previous three seasons. Sadly, randall never won the NABCL championship, so you can reasonably expect Karma to kick in now and position this franchise for immediate success. Other division owners include fletchkd, coachmoss and Shalmelo, with a combined total of 150 prior HBD seasons between them.
Franchise 2 is in the NL West and has been managed for the last seven seasons by mitchrapp, a successful and quality owner. (http://wisjournal.com/HBD/Pages/Popups/FranchiseProfile.aspx?fid=703
) Amazingly, this team has never finished in first place in its division, despite some very good seasons in its past. This franchise has some good bats at the big league level and some quality arms down on the farm. Division mates include knucklebones, Save_Mr_X and drutes, with a combined total of 270 prior HBD seasons.
