League Format: 1969-1976 (162 games, 24 teams, NL:6/6/0, PL:6/6/0, balanced)
Pick a team from the 1980s and within the $80M cap, you can add players, as long as you have at least 20 players from your designated team on your roster (majors or minors). However, you can only add players from the season you chose your team. I.E, if you have the 86 Red Sox, you can drop Buckner and add 1986 K. Hernandez as long as you have at least 20 other 86 Red Sox on your roster. A final twist: since this is designed to improve a team .... World Series champs are ineligible.
