    There was some talk today about doing a historical league on the side so I figured it would be best to create a thread to A) gauge interest and B) determine where in history to start.

    I think 1961 would be a good starting season for a few reasons:
    - The first league expansion since 1901 would allow 2 users to take on the challenge of an expansion team
    - Maris and Mantle race for the HR record
    - Close to the restructuring of the minor leagues in 1963 which left 4 levels, AAA, AA, A and Rookie which means less players to worry about as this is a side league.

    What are your thoughts? Are you interested in a historical league alongside CLB? Are there any years you would want to start, and if so why that year?

    Rules on team selection? I'd like an expansion club
    Preferably colt 45s to avoid being in NL East again

    A draft of team selection would be the way to go, imo.

    I suggest first come, until we know there are conflicts. If there are and it can't be worked out, commish, calls for draft selection.

    My bad I was looking at the 62 expansion. Ok so the Nats later become the Rangers? I'm cool with that. Would we hold the expansion draft? In order to do so I think we would need to launch from 60 and Sim that year?

    Unless Saturn doesn't want the Senators both are already spoken for.

    Yes the Senators became the Rangers in 1972. You're correct in order to hold the expansion draft we would need to start in 1960 and sim the year. I think the easiest thing to do is just use the rosters for the Senators and Angels as selected in the expansion draft in December of 1960. We'll have expansion drafts as we progress and can worry about them down the road.

    I am interested...I would take San Fran Giants or any west coast team if Giants are not available. I'll ask @adlpest if he's interested.
