Birth Year League - Family Style - FULL! Topic

This version of the Birth Year League is all in the family... choose one of the following - your father, mother, brother, sister, son or daughter.  Using their birth year (I'm using my first born daughter - 1979), your player pool will come from the following four baseballreference.com lists:


 Major League Baseball Died This Year
 Major League Baseball Born This Year
 Major League Baseball New Debuts
 Major League Baseball Retirements

24 players on your roster MUST come from these 4 lists according to your family member's birth year and you can use any season of theirs... no minimums or maximums per list.  The 25th player can be a "bonus" player from your family member's birth year.  For example, Keith Hernandez doesn't appear on any list for 1979 but I could draft his 1979 season as my "bonus player".

I will post my team and the player connections to each list in the Theme Leagues Forum after I create the league.  Each owner will have to post their roster and connections there as well in order to receive the league#.

Salary Cap - $110M
No AAA, WW, DH, clones, trades or live play
Injuries turned off
Random realignment
Choose any stadium
YEARS ARE NOT EXCLUSIVE

Here's the links for each list:

Change the xxxx to your year and copy paste



Here's one of the lists I'm using... by clicking on  "more", it will take you to a menu with: New Debuts, Retirements, Born This Year & Died This Year
