Bookend Twist League XVII is now in the books. If you like researching teams, this league may be for you... Take any player in the WIS database from 1885-2012 who played at least 2 seasons... then take his first and last teams as listed in http://www.baseball-reference.com/teams/
and twist any player who appears on the 2 rosters. Your bookend player must be on your team and you can use any season of his.
No 200K exemptions... twist only the players that appear on the 2 rosters.
Using Babe Ruth as an example, your player pool would be from the 1914 Red Sox and 1935 Braves, twisted to any season of course. Players are only exclusive for the purpose of making teams and can appear on other team's rosters. Choose any stadium your bookend player called home at any point in his career.
