First chat session with "Creation Committee."

Last night there was a meeting of the minds as a few key members of the CDBL and BCBL chatted for nearly 3 hours. Many of the decisions for the initial league file were panned out. We will be using REAL MLB teams and logo's. All players will be dumped into a draft pool. All teams will be equalized with average financials and markets. At that point the CPU will draft for all teams with no emphasis on veterans or prospects.

More details to come. A lot was hammered out last night.

Of course, plenty of reminiscing went on too. Many of the CDBL/BCBL managers were in the league for a LONG time. Some of us even remember key trades that went down and favorite players (*cough* Stacy Goodlaw).

The BCBL 2009 version founders are at work.

We are in the process of discussing rules and how we want the league to run. With MLB Spring Training getting in to full swing this coming weekend, baseball fever is catching on. The website is coming together.

The interview process for general managers is scheduled to begin in approximately two weeks.

New OOTP League start-up coming spring of 2009.

The BCBL will officially return from hiatus this coming spring. We will make use of OOTP 9.

Former members of the BCBL and CDBL will have the opportunity take on a team before the interview process is used to fill any remaining teams.

During OOTP 4, 5, 6, and 6.5 the BCBL was one of the premier online leagues in the OOTP world. From Rock solid GM's to an excellent rules set, to a top notch website (see attached image)... the BCBL was the ultimate OOTP experience. The CDBL (Crash Davis Baseball League) was the name of the original incarnation. When the GM's voted for a new league file after 11 seasons, the league changed it's name to the BCBL (Billy Chapel Baseball League).

Former BCBL Website

Stay tuned in the coming weeks for more information.
