1953 Homecoming Progressive FULL Topic

The Homecoming Progressive League: 


16 teams, 4 divisions. Alignment will be based on real-life NL/AL affiliation.

Trades OK
H2H for current series only
no cap

AAA: Each team will be given 6 AAA position players and 6 AAA pitchers to use as they wish. 

Ballparks/team names:

Teams must use the ballparks and team names that their corresponding real-life franchise used in 1946. They will have to change stadiums and relocate when their real-life franchises did (ie: the Braves will move from Boston to Milwaukee in 1953).

Initial Draft:

The initial draft will be run through the forums and will consist of all players in the sim for the 1946 season. The draft will run in a serpentine format (1-24, 24-1) and the order will be made randomly. Obviously, players will be exclusive to their teams. Draft picks may be traded, including during in-season play, or while in off-season mode. They can only be traded from the current season or the following season.

Future Drafts:

Future drafts will consist of all unprotected players and rookies for subsequent seasons and will be conducted in a straight format (1-24, 1-24). To prevent tanking, the worst four teams in the league at the 120-game mark will be entered into a draft lottery to determine who will have the first four selections in the rookie draft. To qualify for the lottery, you must meet a wins floor of 35 wins.  If you don't meet the win floor you will drop to the 5th pick.  The rest of the order will be determined by inverse order of regular-season record. If an owner misses their first round pick, the commish will make a pick for them at the end of the day so their team doesn't get behind. Subsequent rounds will be in inverse w-l record order. 

Keeper Lists:

There are no restrictions on keeper lists, you may keep or cut as many players from your previous year roster as you want. 

Injured Reserve:

If a player is not listed in the WIS database, he will be placed on the I.R. so he doesn't take up a roster spot. It is up to each owner to list any non-listed players on the IR list when they post their keepers. Any players not listed as IR will become free agents when they return to the sim.

Trading Draft Picks:

You may trade draft picks from the current year up to  the next year (we're in the 1952 season and so can trade 1953 and 1954 picks).

i will take the team
sorry Jeff - you've already bailed on this league after 1 season and I'm not confident you wouldn't do it again.  In addition I've recieved multiple sitemails from league owners asking that I not allow you to claim this team.  Sorry.
