First Game Attended League (6/16 in) Topic

I had played in this league non-LIVE when I first started here forever ago, and I believe it was run by pcimino, but I thought this was such a great idea I had to bring it here.  The concept is really quite simple:

You take the rosters from the two teams of the first game you ever attended, and you twist them to any season you'd like.  For the sake of making this easier, you can use anyone who played for those clubs that year.  Granted, this does take a bit of honesty as it would be easy to lie and create the roster of your choice, but I think if everyone plays true to it, it could be a lot of fun and the smaller cap allows for a lot of competition regardless.

-100 mil cap
-No WW, AAA, Trades, DH
-Quick Start, Playoff Push
-40 live minimum
-Ballpark is going to be the park the game you first attended was at

I'm thinking we're going to have to go with 16 teams since there's no way anyone could put two teams in, so setting the bar at 16 is lofty as is.  Hopefully this garners some attention and I'd love if we could get this off the ground guys!

Not 100% if this is the 1st mlb game I went to but it is the 1st I remember because I was only 7 at the time Game 3 of 1973 playoffs Reds at Mets Oct. 8. 1973.  So if you will allow me to go by memory I'll take that game.

What's the ruling on DH?

I wasn't considering it.  I mean, if there's giant upheavel we could do it, but I'd rather we keep it simple.

No worries.  Jim Rice will just have to suck it up.

Not that anyone cares, but my dad's first game was June 19th, 1949.  Indians at Yankees.  Feller vs Allie Reynolds.  THAT would have been a team.
