Summer of 49'

Hi all,

I ran a successful historical online league between 2003 and 2013 covering a lot of history. The league ran from 1949 season up to 1992.

I am now looking to reboot that franchise and I am looking for engaged mature GMs who will be looking to stick around and run a quality franchise. Looking for respectful conduct and help make this a fun enjoyable league!

I am hoping the league will expand at points along MLB history so you will have opportunities to join later if you miss the cut.

Not sure if I will start with an inaugural draft or not. TBD.

The league will start with the 16 MLB franchises from the year 1949.

Already have spots filled with original members! With 9 spots filled, we have openings for 7 GMs!

If you would like to secure your spot, send me an email telling me a little about yourself and why you would make a good GM in our league. In addition, tell me which 3 teams you would prefer.

Email: gbgraves@rogers.com

Cheers,

Gary

Was that the league started by Nathan (I believe that was his first name)? I believe his username here was The Professor or something like that. Its one of the first leagues I remember around v2/3.

Yeah it was Nate that started it and I took over commish duties and ran it for a number of years. Now I am ready to reboot it!

Yeah, here's where he announced it in 2002.

I'd be interested in being in it again. I was an owner at least when Nathan ran it. Cards?

Did you decide on a draft or not? Also what will be the sim schedule?

I put the draft up as a poll in Slack and so far people like the idea because it allows everyone to shape their teams instead of starting with strong or weak teams. A fresh start so to speak.

I am thinking it best to go with a 3 sim per week schedule (1 week per sim) which I believe is a more popular schedule.

Only two teams left and just waiting on Cooleyvol to select his team

Philadelphia Athletics
Chicago White Sox

So basically you could have the last team!

Very solid group of GMs and so happy with those that have applied to be part of this reboot!
