Negro League Season 27 - TWO openings Topic

HBD's tribute to the Negro Leagues continues for its 20th season.  Founded by schedule1, this world continues to be one of the best you'll find in all of HBD.  We've got a great group of owners, and are looking for one more quality owner to add to the fold. 

We have one main rule (besides the obvious "no tanking"), and that is that each team must be in a city and have a nickname used by an actual Negro League team.  That's not as limiting as you might think, as here are a couple of good resources to find Negro League teams:

Now, for our open franchise:

Our team is in the NL West, and has been very competitive under its previous owner.  The only problem you might have is that this team is in the "division of death," as last season the NL West produced four of the five best records in the league.  As a result, this was not a playoff team last season, but was certainly playoff worthy with an 88-74 mark.  You'll have the pieces in place to be competitive right away, but also face a challenge in your NL West brethren.  Here's the franchise profile:

There's a reason this world has few openings each season.  Two seasons ago, we had all 32 owners return.  Just one opening this time around...don't miss out!

Still one spot available.  A competitive team in a great division, and one of the most balanced worlds out there.  As noted above, six different teams in the World Series in the last three seasons.

Ask any current owner in this world, it's a lot of fun and highly competitive!

I have thoroughly enjoyed learning about the Negro Leagues by being in this league. I look up each team as they join, and there are some great stories.
