As most of you know, there is a major reorganiztion of the CSSA evening operation in process. Things are moving ahead well, but the team formation is a little behind schedule. The following is to keep everyone adviced of where we are.
1. The new National League has been created, the draft has been held and 5 teams of 12 players formed.
2. The new Americam League has been created, the draft was completed last night with 5 teams of 12
3. The Masters League has lost a number of their top players to the new American League. The ML managers
met Tuesday night to figure out how to re-create their teams in the most fair way for all teams. Five of
the six mangers agreed to work together to make the Master League a balanced as possible. One
manager got angry and stomped out saying he and his players would not play in the CSSA. He has been
given the opportunity to reconsider, but has choosen not to do so. Now that the American League draft
is over and the available players known, the remaining five manager are meeting tonight to discuss the
method and proceedures for a major re-draft of the Masters League teams. Among other things they
will decide whether to go with 5 or 6 teams, the number of players available for each team, and the
proceedure of the selections. They will then have their draft on Monday night.
4. The Wednesday night league will draft on either Tuesday or Wednesday night. They will have 4 teams.
5. The Monday Cornerstone League is still in the process of lining up players to replace the coach and several
players that left. They plan to have 4 teams. Uncertain when they may form the teams
6. Monday morning Legends League is drafting Saturday morning with 4 teams.
7. Wednesday morning League is planning to draft on Sunday evening.
The Monday morning Legends League is starting next Monday (13th) due to the Monday holiday.
The Monday Cornerstone League is starting the first Monday in Sept and playing a lot of doubleheaders.
All other leagues start the week of the 20th.
