I'm looking to gauge interest in forming a new, recurring fantasy baseball league for the GeekDad community. The target is 16 franchises with ownership teams consisting of parent-kid partnerships. It is important that kids take an active role.
Ideally, owners will:
We can make a go of any league that has at least 8 franchises, but we'll definitely pick an even number of franchises and cap out participation at 20. Divisional alignment will be done after we have our final list of owners, to allow for us to group teams geographically as much as possible.
To claim a franchise, reply to this thread expressing your interest and send me an email (email@example.com) with your name and contact information, including your location. The list in the thread will serve as a waiting list until you are invited to officially join.
My 7 year old and I would love to joIn.
If you still have a spot when its all sorted out me and my 8 year old son and 6 year old daughter would love to join. If you end up with too many is there a way to organize those left over into a second league?
My sons (5 and 7 years old) and I would be interested in playing if you still have room.
Wow, thanks for the Easter responses today. We are now at capacity, with 20 teams. I gave preference to those whose emails I received, in the order I received them.
For the rest, there are two options that might be of interest.
First, I've started a waiting list for future GDS leagues, optimistically believing we can not only keep this baseball league going but also might start football and partial-season basketball leagues, too. If that happens, I'll contact the waiting list names first.
Second, there may be some interest in trying to form a second league. I've started a discussion thread for that purpose.
Thanks to everyone for your interest in starting up this league and endorsing the sports geek side of GeekDad. Looking forward to a great season.
