BCBSMA had such a great idea for a league that I thought I would emulate him and tweak the details somewhat to get a different result.
Baseball-Reference now has boxscores going back as far as 1916: www.baseball-reference.com/boxes
When you sign up, I'll assign you a random date (via random.org). Go to b/r.com to view the box scores from that date in history.You will be allowed to twist only pitchers who appears in any box score
from your date to any season in his career.
Position players seasons must come from the season that the box score was used!
The player could appear as a pinch runner, pinch hitter, etc - as long as you see his name in the boxscore, he's eligible.
Caveat: I will ensure every date has at least EIGHT
games played that day to ensure you have a sufficient pool of players to draw from. If not, I will generate a new date.
- $90m cap
- No clones, no WW, no AA, no trades, no live play
- NO DH
- Ballpark must have been played in on your date
- Allignment - Random
The first willing person to sign up can generate my date and post it to the forum (there are a couple of options on Random.org - you can run three random sequences (4-9 for month, 1-31 for day and 1916-2013 for year) or use the date generator (set range to 4/1/1916 - 9/30-2013) - obviously rerun if you get a date that's out of range.
