When you say "Professional Baseball" in the rule for Wild cards, does that mean non-MLB team?  I picked A-Rod because he played for the Mariners, but also played for Calgary and Tacoma.

Any league that is included in the link I provided in the first post qualifies towards the picking of your Wildcard player. So A-Rod playing in Calgary qualified him for your team.  There is no link between the ballpark you select and wildcard player you select. It just happens to be a coincidence in your case that A-Rod played in your region and at Safeco.

Hope that makes sense...

I will take NC/SC

WC Player TBD (Depending on position of need)

BP TBD (NO BP in my region, so I will see what BP I will need, based on my team makeup)

Dont worry I wont take long, maybe a day or 2, SURELY before we get close to being Full (it might take a while based on the regions left, eh?)

Ok, for the ballpark anything in D.C. or Atlanta. As per the rules, keeping ballparks within 500 sq miles if you do not have one.

Still lots of talent out there and surprisingly two of the more challenging teams have already been taken.

measuring on map I see that it is 500 mi from the tip of NC to the lower great lakes, adding in chicago, cincinnati, NY...

Then those are your options. I had to give an expansive map for the teams out west, but if you can find a ballpark in a bordering state that would be ideal.
