The Post War Progressive league has one opening for the 1955 season. The league started in 1946 and this will be our 10th season.

The team available is the Chicago Cubs, which finished 1954 with a record of 38-124 and will have the #1 draft pick in the 1955 draft.

We are ready to start the draft as soon as a replacement owner is found.
