Full-Time Position Players
Teams should carry at least one carded full-time position player at each respective position, on their 35/36-man
roster. A full-time player is defined as anyone that is listed as "Regular" under the Role category.
(When viewing your team status, it lists each player's role).
Any players acquired after the trade/free agent deadline are not eligible for the playoffs.
Players may be called-up/sent-down from minors/majors roster after each round (26 player roster
limit - majors).
If a roster move is required during a playoff series, the team will lose the player being sent
down for the duration of the playoffs. They will also lose an additional roster
spot for the duration of the playoffs.
Players may play ONLY at their designated positions. In the event of an
injury, a player may play at a non-designated position. It is HIGHLY recommended
that all teams have at least 2 players (starter/backup) who can play at the same position during a series.
PITCHERS RULE: Teams are required to carry
a minimum of 10 pitchers on their Majors roster during the regular season.
- 5 starting pitchers (SP’s) and 5 relief
Starting pitchers (SP) cannot be used in
relief unless they did so in real life.
- Exception: Starting pitchers can be used in
during the playoffs.
Relief pitchers (RP) cannot be used to
start unless they did so in real life.
Teams should bench their starting rotations
to prevent possible misuse by the computer manager (i.e. - SP being used in relief, RP being used to start, etc.)
- If a team purposefully
misuses an SP or RP, they'll be
given a warning.
- If it happens a second time, they will
not be allowed to
make any player claims or trades for one month.
- If it happens a third time, they
may be asked to step down from the league.
The maximum stolen base attempts allowed is double the
number of stolen base attempts on the player’s card. This
to prevent players with a low number of steals and an
SB rating from putting up outrageous SB
numbers. Once the SB limit is reached that player may have
their SB rating reduced to "0".

2. Auto sub must
3. Home managers
must use appropriate vs. LH/ vs. RH
lineups for the visiting team (i.e. if the home team switches
SP from a LHP to RHP, they need to switch the road
team’s lineup to LHP/RHP and vice versa).
During a series, in the event a starting player on the
visiting team is unable to play (injury/fatigue), the home
team will be allowed to make an appropriate substitution for
the injured player. If this occurs, the home team should
notify their opponent as well as the Commissioner as to
why a lineup change was made.
Four teams in each league make the playoffs.
Two division winners and two wildcards.
Wildcard teams determined by best record (non-division winners)
Seeding is as follows:
o #1 (Div.

players as they desire. Once the draft begins, cuts are no longer allowed. Everyone will draft until they have filled their 36 man roster.

can be made up at any time. Any players drafted in the interim, will remain on
