I'd be interested in Kansas City if they are available. You can reach me at jdyi87@yahoo.com. I also applied via the website.

I'm interested in playing in the league, but need to be upfront about my complete inexperience and ask a few questions to see if I have the time to commit to this.

If I were to join, I see Kansas City is still open and I'm a fan since inception in 1969 when I was the ripe old age of 8. [Just reviewed and it seems KC might be taken. If so, order of preference: Cleveland, Cincinatti, Tampa Bay.]

First - I've never, ever played OOTP. I'm a huge fantasy baseball fan (8 leagues this year) and in one of the several podcasts I listen to daily (Sleeper and the Bust), I heard Paul Sporer advertise OOTP. Having been a longtime fan of APBA baseball, I thought this might be something for me.

I've been watching some youtube tutorials and play throughs to get a feel for the game. Now, I've just downloaded a steam code for OOTP 17 -
again just to get a feel. I know I'd need OOTP 18 for the league.

So, it may or may not be good to try to join a league without some hands on experience first. Don't know.

As far as time commitment. How does being part of an online league work? I see something about setting our team lineups etc. and then exporting. Does the Commissioner then sim with AI running everything or how does that work? I'm happy to set lineups daily - do that with my 8 fantasy teams, but what else?

Regardless of whether this works out or not, thank you for your response so I know a little more of the lay of the land.

You'd be fine to join an online league. Most leagues are happy to help out guys who are new, everyone was new at one point.

You adjust your entire organization, moving guys up and down, setting pitching staffs and lineups, etc. You also set your own team strategies, individual player strategies, etc. Submit FA offers or Waiver claims, DFA or release players, etc. You then export a file in-game to the Commish. He grabs everyone's exports and advances the file (sims) a specified number of days. He then uploads a new file for everyone to download in-game and you repeat the process.

The amount of time you spend is totally up to you. You could get by on 15min before every sim day making minor changes. Or you could spend countless hours staying awake late at night tweaking everything in your organization to avoid another losing week.

Hope that helps!
