League Format: Alternate WIS Format E (162 games, 16 teams, NL:4/4/0, PL:4/4/0, balanced, interleague)
Choose one of Ernie Banks' seasons and use players from that year as his teammates for your exclusive season. Since Ernie had a long career, there are many good seasons to choose from. The only rule is that you have Ernie on your active team all season. Stadiums for your chosen year are all available. This will be a 16 team league. Exclusive seasons available are 1953-1971. First come, first served. I will choose a season after 5 owners have joined so we can get a league number. Salary cap

The Baseball Writers Association of America is really something. Every year they get together to pick two MVPs. Far too often they get them wrong, sometimes pathetically wrong. 1960 Dick Groat over Willie Mays? 1958 Jackie Jensen over Mickey Mantle? 1992 Dennis Eckersley over … half the guys in the AL? There have been some real stinkers over the years, you’ll probably be surprised how many. This league is about finding the true MVPs who have been robbed by the BWAA. See forum for full details.
