    Please only use this thread for signing up and making posts about the draft.

    1. Wrigley - Louisville Sluggers
    2. sarge88 - Prospect Hill A's
    3. tinyzombies - Montreal Expos
    4. Fenway - Boston Red Sox
    5. Vegeta - Hanshin Tigers

    We are pleased to present the all-time draft - Baseball Edition.

    Essentially, the game will follow the same well-refined format as the hockey all-time draft. It is designed primarily as a fun competition, but of greater importance is to honor the history of baseball and the players that have shaped the game, from the early beginnings to the present day.
    The format is quite simple. A drafting order will be randomly generated. This draft order will reverse every second round (snake draft).

    Each team will draft a complete roster, with a total of 25 players and one manager (grand total of 26 draft picks). Each team should have a starter at each position (1B, 2B, SS, 3B, CF, RF, LF, C), as well as a full starting rotation of 5 and a closer. There will also be no DH included within the rosters.

    Your goal is to assemble the best possible roster, choosing from any player who has ever played baseball, at any level, anywhere in the world. At the conclusion of the draft, regular season voting will be conducted by your peers in the draft (possibly others, such as spectators who happen to follow the draft and participate in discussion). From these voting results we will determine our regular season standings, and then the playoffs begin!

    The playoffs will behave in this fashion after regular season concludes.

    1 vs 8
    2 vs 7
    3 vs 6
    4 vs 5

    Each playoff round will last a week for discussion of the matchups and for each team to state its case, at which point more votes are taken. In this case you vote for the winner of the series and how many games it will take. This continues until we have determined our champion.

    Rules

    1. NEVER mention an undrafted player. It is poor etiquette. If quoting a source about a player you’re drafting, simply substitute the undrafted player with XXXX XXXX.

    2. The time limit changes throughout the draft. This will be how it runs:

    Round 1-2: 24 Hour Time Limit
    Round 3-26: 12 Hour Time Limit

    If you are not sure whether you will be available to make your pick within the allotted time, please send a list of players to someone who will be there for that time. This way the draft can progress nicely.

    3. You MUST send a private message to the next GM to alert them that it is their turn. This is mandatory and it is crucial to the draft going smoothly. You should also change your board preferences so that you receive an email when you receive a PM. Many have found that this ensures that when it's your turn, you know as soon as possible.

    4. Please be advised that it is MANDATORY to vote if you expect to participate in the next All-Time Draft. Put some effort into it. It's only fair that the best team wins. You can make your votes based on whatever criteria are important to you, but we are all expected to have an open mind and listen to the arguments for why each roster is better.

    5. The draft is 26 rounds long. Each team will make 26 picks with one player at each position and one manager alongside extra bench players.

    6. When making a pick, you should be posting at least three lines about the player. This can be in your own words or copied and pasted from a cited source. This is done for a couple of reasons: 1) To prove that you know something about him/have researched him. 2) To show the other GMs why this is a good pick.

    7. DO NOT MENTION UNDRAFTED PLAYERS.

    Co-Gm's are allowed and encouraged. No more than 2 GM's to a team though.

    A manager who also played as a player, must only be selected as one or the other. This means certain athletes could be selected twice in this draft by either the same or a different team in such cases.

    If you select a player who played most of his career at lets say 1B but played for 2 years at LF, and choose him to play left field. You can draft him for either position...however...this will downgrade the players ability. Its a risk that you can make but you have a better chance of winning if you have everyone at there natural position.

    You will need to have at least 1 Manager, 1 C, 1 1B, 1 2B, 1 3B, 1 SS, 1 LF, 1 CF, 1 RF, 5 SP, 3 RP including 1 closer. No DH. And again like the position players, if you move a reliever to a starter or vice versa, then that will affect how effective your player will be.

    FOR PLAYOFFS IT WOULD BE GREATLY APPRECIATED THAT VOTING IS DONE REGULARLY and if you want to stay for another Baseball ATD then it is a good idea to vote because it will give us the mindset that you care about the draft and not just your team.

    I just want to thank everyone. 130 picks in only 8 days and the voting was done in one day. It was by far the most amazing All-Time Draft I've seen in any sport. Thanks! :D
