    I would like to play. I want to be Chicago Cubs and be in the Hulbert League.

    Actually, I think they were about the same because I lettered in all sports, and I was a two-time state decathlon champion.

    My sophomore year I placed 2nd, and my junior and senior year - I got smart and piled up enough points between myself and second place where I didn't have to run the mile.

          No idea. I was just posting an updated list since Chancellor seems to have abandoned this. Mikey said he wanted the rockies, then in another post at the top it said "No DH Fro the Montreal royals" so I guess he either a.wanted another team or b.was saying that they should be in the No DH league for whoever was picking them.

            Last post on this is pretty old so I'm guessing this project fell through. If you're still looking for teams, I'll be the Hollywood Stars in which ever league you need a team in.

                  You could make it a 12 team League and a 10 team league.

                    No one's posted for a while, so I might be too late. I'm new to this whole thing, but I'm in if you still need another team. If there is space, I'll take the Boston Americans.

                          While we eagerly await the 24th and final member of this brouhaha, I thought I'd take a few minutes to discuss with you the particulars of the league.

                          League Name: NBBL (National Base Ball League)

                          League Type: One-year (not a "keeper" league, though it could turn into that if enough people are interested.)

                          Sim Engine: Diamond Mind Baseball version 9.0

                          I have randomly determined an order for the ballpark draft - the next step in getting things started. The order for the ballpark draft is listed below:

                          Detroit Wolverines
                          Oakland A's
                          Chicago Cubs
                          Baltimore Orioles
                          Montreal Royals
                          Kansas City Cowboys
                          Worcester Ruby Legs
                          Dayton Marcos
                          Atlanta Braves
                          New York Giants
                          Texas Rangers
                          Boston Americans
                          Louisville Colonels
                          Colorado Rockies
                          Brooklyn Dodgers
                          Houston Astros
                          St. Louis Browns
                          Hollywood Stars
                          St. Louis Cardinals
                          Milwaukee Brewers
                          Seattle Mariners
                          Seattle Pilots
                          Philadelphia Athletics
                          Buffalo Bison

                          You may select any stadium used in the Major Leagues (American, National or Federal) from 1901-2003. Each stadium is uniquely rated for outfield wall distances at various points as well as wall height. Other factors such as the size of the foul territory will also be accounted for in the game. In short, if you select Coors Field, don't be surprised when your pitching staff has a 5.00 ERA. If you pick Dodger Stadium, don't ask me why your team is batting .230.

                          Detroit, Oakland and Chicago may go ahead and get this started (and hopefully that 24th team will find an owner by the time they've picked.)

                          The ballpark draft thread can be found here.

                          After the ballpark draft is complete, we'll begin the player draft. I have not yet randomly determined the order of that draft, but will shortly.

                          Btw...draft picks in either of these drafts cannot be traded.

                          I should also note that I have decided to include players from the National League, American League, National Association, Federal League, Union Association, Players League as well as assorted negro (and other) all-stars who were prohibited from playing in the majors due to the color of their skin. I will warn you in advance, however, that pre-1894 players and negro leaguers will be rated conservatively. Don't expect Old Hoss Radbourn to be able to win 60 games or for Satchel Paige to strikeout 500 hitters or anything like that.

                          I highly recommend using the intervening time to consider what park you'd like and what players you're interested in.

                          Hope to see 24 of you in full draft mode in the very near future!

                            Chancellor, before I start making a draft list there are a couple points on player ratings I'd like to clarify. Diamond mind, as far as I know, hasn't simulated any seasons or players prior to 1901 or the Negro Legues. Will you be creating these yourself? Also, all the player records they have created are based on single season statistics, although I don't know if that will be true with thier upcoming "all time greatest players" version. Will we be using players based on a single season or career totals? If season, it will of course be important to know which season for each player. If career, you've got yout work cut out for you in creating every drafted player (most guys likely to be drafted have a season or several already create). Also, will we be using "neutral era" for our league? For those not famiiar with dimaond mind, players will perform differently in different parks and also in different years. Deadball players moved to live ball will hit more homers. I've run sims with leagues of the best deadball teams in the neutral era (league numbers averaged out over history) and deadball sluggers HRs have jumped up quite a bit. Not to McGwire or Sosa territory, but enough to be dangerous. I haven't used them in live era against live ball pitchers so I can't offer any info on how many Home Run Baker would hit against 1990 pitching. I think I'll find out before the draft though. Chancellor, I've got a pretty good diamond lmind library and some experience on creating players. If I can help with this let me know. Anybody else who knows diamond mind might want to share some tips for drafters who haven't played as well.l

                              hey guys i talked to my friend about this and he said that he might do it, he said no at first cuz he said he was going to get a job sometime soon and probably lose interest as the season goes on, and he doesn't want to do that to us... have a guy who doesnt pay attention or do anything but he did tell me, if we dont get a 24th within a couple days or couldnt find anyone else then he'll do it and join

                                OK, I hereby sign up, with the Baltimore Orioles, since the St. Louis Browns are taken. And why don't we make it the Pre-Yankee Baltimore Orioles for posterity .

                                ...oh yeah, is there going to me a managerial draft, or does that even matter? I guess we'll be owner-ballcoaches, huh?
