Metropolis is a fun, competitive, no-nonsense, no-drama world with a good core of long-term owners. We are a themed world, with NL franchises being named after heroes from comics, movies, or TV series, and AL franchises being named after villains. We have a few rules that prospective owners should be aware of:
1. Each team must win a minimum of 52 games in a season and a minimum of 175 games over three consecutive seasons.
2. All NL teams must be named after a known superhero, and all AL teams must be named after a known supervillain.
3. Each team must play in a city where there is currently a professional sports franchise in real life. This includes any city that currently has a team in the MLB, NHL, NBA, or NFL.
4. Teams (regardless of ownership changes) must remain in the same ballpark for five seasons minimum. A maximum of three teams per season may relocate.
Right now, we have the following openings. Sitemail me if you are interested.
AL East-- Jacksonville
: This team is coming off a 77 win season, but it finished 2nd in a division where the winner was 81-81, so there is an opportunity to compete right away or to focus on a long-term project. This franchise must remain in Jacksonville.
NOTE: We are willing to take on owners with no prior HBD experience, and we have had several stick around become successful owners. If you have no prior HBD experience, please make a case for yourself as someone who understands and is committed to being successful in HBD. Finding a mentor, taking time to read the forums and learn about the game, etc, will greatly increase your chances.
