The 2012 Icon Regressive seems to have stalled out so I am going to see if this has any more interest.  I thought about starting in 1885 but there are only eight franchises from 1885 that continue on to present day and we need at least 12 to make a league. If we started in 1901 that is the first season of the American League so we have 16 teams that we can pick from.

This will be a 12 team league (2 six team divisions) and in order to make it a bit more fair to the lesser teams I am going to say that players are eligible for any team they played for. So the only keepers are the players who played their entire career with one team and everyone else is fair game. Obviously there might be some keepers due to the fact that there will be four defunct teams. These players can be placed on IR if they did not play for your team in that season (your choice.)

Initial draft will be in inverse order of real life wins over the first 10 seasons of this league.
