This is a 16 team league. Each owner will nominate 1 player that has played 16 seasons* or more in their career. Once all 16 players are announced, a draft order will be determined and each owner will draft a different season of each player nominated to be on their team. So all 16 teams will own the same 16 players, but each with a different version of that player. The other 9 rosters spots will be filled with teammates of your 16 drafted players.

* Note that if a player played 15 seasons, but played for 2 different teams in one season, that counts as 16 (you'll understand why after reading the remaining rules ). Also, since only years 1901-2013 are used in this version, the player must have 16 eligible seasons during this time frame. Example: if a player has 18 seasons (i.e., 1898-1915), but 3 of those seasons are 1898-1900, then he has only 15 eligible seasons and cannot be nominated.
To determine number of player seasons, choose Pos = ALL, Min Games = 0, Check "Include Secondary Positions" and set Season Type = Full/Combined and years 1901-2013 (i.e., Rickey Handerson has 29 seasons for purposes of this league). You can use a partial season of a multi-team player, but either the partial OR the combined season for a specific team can be used, not both.

A standard lineup will be used for nominations so we'll need C, 1B, 2B, 3B, SS, OF, OF, OF and 8 Pitchers (at least 4 SP). For players who played more than one position, there will be some leeway on which position you can nominate him at (i.e., A-Rod can be ss or 3b).

Upon signup, post your nominated player in the forum and site-mail me which of his seasons you are going to use. The season you select must be one of the highest three salaried seasons for that player. For purposes of ranking the highest salaried seasons, players who played for 2+ teams, only one of those seasons counts in the rankings. I will choose my player after at least five players have been selected. Once all 16 players are chosen, I'll post the seasons selected and the draft order. We'll have a 15 round draft to select the other 15 seasons used for each player. Draft order for each round will be based on the cumulative salary going into that round (lowest salary drafts first).

Here's where it gets fun
The remaining 9 roster spots must be filled with teammates of your drafted/nominated players. They must be from the same season. No Twisting. Nominated players cannot be used as teammates. If you draft a player season with 2+ teams, you choose which version of that season you want, and can only take teammates from that team. (This is how a player with 15 seasons, including one multi-team season can be allowed. Or similarly, a player with 14 seasons, w/ two multi-team seasons is allowed, etc.). There is no limit on number of teammates per drafted player. Many drafted players will not have any teammates. Some will have two or more. Usually, your nomintaed player will have multiple good teammate options.

Maury Wills only has 15 eligible seasons.  Remember to choose Season Type = Full/Combined for purposes of determining number of seasons.  THis is a good example to explain how this works...

Wills has 4 seasons in 1969, Pittsburgh full and partial & Montreal full and partial.  Any of those four '69 seasons can be drafted, but the reason why these four seasons count as only two seasons is that because if the 69 Pittsburgh full season gets drafted, the 69 Pittsburgh partial is now off the board.
