Remember that team you rooted for and lived and died with back in the day? This league will pay homage to those teams that, regardless of the standings, had you poring over boxscores and listening to your transistor radios late into the night.
Take any team by year that you followed back when you were a kid... say, up to age 17. For me it was the 1969 Seattle Pilots, who stayed for one not so glorious season in my hometown when I was 13. My Dad took us to about half a dozen games that year including the Yankee game with the famous brawl chronicled in Jim Bouton's Ball Four.
Then, twist any player who appeared on the roster according to Baseballreference.com... for those new to the twist, that means you can draft any season for your roster players.
FREE AGENT OPTION - You will be allowed ONE Free Agent from any other team from that season (no twisting) provided their salary is not higher than your highest hitter's salary if you select a hitter, or your highest pitcher's salary if you select a pitcher.
Teams will be exclusive by year.
Salary Cap $90M
No AAA, WW, DH, clones, trades, injuries or live play
