Crash Davis-18 Slots Filled in Record Time-Thanks! Topic

Welcome to the newly-renamed Crash Davis. Like our fictional mascot from Bull Durham suggests we are a no BS world that plays hard, laughs hard, and still has the hots for Susan Sarandon. (Well, some of us older guys anyway.)

The world known as Spawn for 20 seasons is no more. And no one here is the least bit sad about it. Our commissioner abandoned us without a word at season's end. There were bad feelings and 18 openings. It looked for sure like a complete implosion.

But then a dedicated group of owners formed a core and started a world renaissance. New rules were drafted. Old ways that weren't working were tossed. In short, we are a  phoenix rising from the ashes--and we want you to be part of this.

Between wooing back owners who had left and some good word of mouth we have filled 17 of those 18 teams in short order. We have The Big Mo on our side. But we want you to know we're serious about having quality owners join us this season. So we took up a collection and ended up with a generous $75 in WIS Gift Cards to distribute to some lucky new owners. You heard right:


That's 3 free seasons we're giving away--only to owners who were not with us last season. There will be approximately 11 new owners, so your chance to win a free season of HBD will be about (let's see--add the 7, carry the 1, subtract 2 . . . . and divide by 3 ... . your chances of winning a free season are about

3 in 11 !!!

We are still determining how the cards will be distributed but you will need to stay the entire Season 21 to collect. The teams are below. We'll flesh them out when we get time. Come join us. We're a fun bunch and we'd like you to be part of the new Crash Davis. For details send a sitemail to:

Private World Rules (shortened):

1. Executive Committee

We are a world overseen by a comissioner but governed by the 5-member Executive Committee
2 owners from AL, 2 owners from NL, 1 Commissioner
All decisions and judgements flow through this committee.

2. Anti-tanking

• No back to back 100 loss seasons
• No 120 loss seasons
• Prospect budget must not exceed ML player spending in any season

3. Minor League Maintenance

We expect our owners to maintain minimum standards in the care and grooming of their minor leagues. 
Common sense mostly. See specifics in Private World Rules.

4. Personal Attacks

Good natured barbs are a good way to keep things light and build community. Personal attacks are not.
Name calling or the attacking of fellow owners on world chat will not be tolerated.
Life is too short for this to be anything but a fun environment. See Private World Rules for specifics.

I am one of the owners who has never had the hots for Susan Sarandon, but they still let me stay anyways.  Sermon is a great commish and runs a tight, but fair and fun ship.  I'm in the other world he is commish of, Lasorda, and we consistently fill within days of rolling, if not same day.  So come join our fresh new world!
