What is the AAA situation for 1970?

Twice we changed as we went along during the 1969 season.

We were not given the low ratings Seaphil requested for our AAA prospects, penalizing those who prepared a team with a high value given to Real Life At- Bats and Innings Pitched. The group decided to get the season underway and not wait for a fix from administration.

Later we reversed the deadline for using AAA prospects.The stretch run was going to be prospect free, that was changed.

Being discussed in league pages now
Unless we decide on something else, we're using the original rules (which were lower quality players with no IP/AB or deadline requirement).

Subject:Big League World Series
Message:I am trying to compile all the world series winners (and losers) from the Big League as I begin documenting the history of the league, which is now in our 20th season (1988)

This mail has been sent to all current, and as many past owners that I could remember. I have tried to compile each teams ownership lineage, but know I have missed a few (at least).

In the 1987 World Series, the Royals (rls1) won over the Padres (gonoles777).

If anyone receieving this has either won, or lost, in a BL World Series, please let me know when and against whom.

much thanks,
