Random Rookie Class Progressive
Each season one random year will be selected between 1900 and the most current WIS Season – 10 for the next seasons Rookie Class (selection of season will take place at the All Star Game); only first year players, that are not currently in use, will be added to the draft pool.  Each year one more random year will be selected, with that year being placed on a “blacklist” for 20 seasons after it has been selected.  Each year the players on your team progress one year, same with undrafted players that remain in the pool. If a player retires and the next season his “first year” is pulled he is eligible to return.  He may not return as long as he is active with a team or in the draft pool.

Every fifth season one more random stadium will be added. If you change your stadium, you may do it but must reside in that stadium for 5 seasons.  If you draft a stadium you release your original stadium back in to the draft pool, which is blacklisted for 3 seasons. Changing a stadium will not change your division.

If a player on a team is still active, but does not have his current season in the WIS Database, he will remain on his teams DL until that season is released.  Free agents that do not have their current season available will be removed from the free agent pool and must wait for their season to be drawn to return to the league.

The first two rounds of the draft will be based on a formula that uses Performance against League Salary.  Rounds 3 and on will go worst to first by winning pct. (WS winner is last pick in the draft, runner up second to last).  Rounds three on will be in order of winning percentage, lowest to highest, if two teams have the same pct the team with the lower salary will draft first.

Draft Formula for following seasons will work as follows (Avg. Salary/Avg. League Salary) * Wins.  This will give a worst to first look with some teams moving up or down a few spaces based on how much salary they are carrying, and over or under performing. Commissioner will draft to make up picks as needed, and not let a team fall behind (no more than 2 picks). Should an owner miss three picks in a row without any communication to any owner in the league a replacement owner will be sought ASAP.  Before each draft a team must cut down to draft a maximum of 25 players (not including DL). If you have 23 after cuts you are able to draft in the first two rounds, you may not trade picks that your team is not receiving. Drafts will only take place during week days and not on weekends.

Team Names:  
In order to keep with the spirit of the franchise aspect of this league, all teams will need to use the city/state name where their stadium resides, followed by a team name.  Once a name is taken (drafted with the stadium/or changed when a team moves) it is yours.  If you want to add the year to your team name to keep it separate from other teams; that is fine by me.

Roster Structure:
25 man team with no limitations on salary, innings pitched or at bats.
If a player has combined/split seasons you can use whatever you want.
Unlimited spaces for DL players.
Must have less than 25 players to participate in the draft.
Players may play out of position with no penalty.

Alternate WIS Format E – 162 Games 16 Teams, 4 Playoff Teams 
No salary cap – league will set higher than the highest team so there is room to make trades in season.
AAA/DH – None
Trades – Highly encouraged.  Player Draft picks may be traded for the current and/or following season only.  
Live Play – Limited to next series
Split/Combined Seasons – Owners choice, use what you want to.
Clones – Players are exclusive to one owner and only 1 instance of a player may be used on your team.

Rule Additions/Deletions/Changes:  
Over time, the league may decide to add, delete, or change the league rules.  To add a new rule will require a simple majority vote (of owners who voted).  To delete or change an existing rule, a 2/3rds majority vote (of voting owners) will be required.
