Random Debut Baseball League- Inaugural Draft

After 30+ seasons played over the past 6 years we have decided to start over in the RDBL as just about all the players came through our league. What we are doing is using the August 1 updated Quick Start, releasing all the players (majors and minors) and having an inaugural draft using Statsplus. Each June's amateur draft will be made up of random players from MLB history going forward and our plan is to do 30 seasons which should take about 6-7 years.

We have 0 of the 30 MLB teams available. They are-

I keep this list up to minute updated, so if you see it listed, its available.

We use Slack for our communications and StatsPlus for the amateur draft and year end awards. With equalized markets and a salary cap, an involved owner can turn a team around in 1-2 seasons.

Go HERE to see the teams/league

Much recommended league, Paul is an excellent commissioner who hardly every misses sims. Great chat/banter on slack. Interesting aspect to see how the old players compare in the modern game. I know a lot of us play in only this online league as it's so good.

Great, fun league with engaged GMs

I've been a part of RDBL since season 3 of its last run, so since about 2013 or 2014. The commissioner has missed maybe 15 total days of sim in the last 5 years, and some of those have been due to things like Christmas, birth of a child or moving to a new home - so he's very consistent.

We have a GMs from across the world, and we have some good ones, so if you just want to run over unskilled human GMs or run over the AI managers, this league is not for you. If you want a challenge, with GMs who look to improve their teams and win the World Series, this league is for you.

A fun aspect is the Random Debut feature. It's fun to see players like Joe DiMaggio, Babe Ruth and Ty Cobb make their way into and through our league. Some of them dominate as they did in real life, and some of them don't. It is also neat to watch some players whose real life careers were cut short by injury have a full Hall-of-Fame-worthy career (Mark Prior comes to mind).

Many of us have been with the league for multiple real-life years, and with the reset, several older members who saw real life catch up to them a while back have returned for the new challenge.

I challenge you to step up and see if you can handle us...

Are beginners welcome? I just got the game last month and did a fantasy draft, playing through two seasons, then a couple seasons with the Braves.

I love the idea of an online league, especially one with a draft, but admittedly am a no0b. Willing to learn and be active but just want to be up front that it would be my first league. If you're looking for more experienced players I understand, but if you're willing to give me an overview of how it all works then I'd love to join. How does the draft work for example? Everyone meets at a set time and we draft through or it's a slow draft over a week or something? Thanks!

Best league out there

I have been part of the RDBL for more than four years in real time. Over 30 seasons. This is the best league out there. The commissioner provides a consistent experience, season after season. Rarely missing sims. The pace of the league is just right. Just enough feedback from your roster each day to give you a sense of how your moves impact the team. We are restarting with 2019 players, but the fun for me really took hold last time around when the historical players were fed into the league in future seasons ameteur drafts. I remember the buzz of drafting 19 year old Ted Williams.

There is a solid core of really savvy GMs. No AI-like pushovers here. Bring your A game. If you want a real OOTP challenge and are looking for a league with a great bunch of guys, look no further. The RDBL is the best run league out there.

Excellent league that I have been a part of for about 20 in games seasons. Competition is stiff, so like someone said above bring your A game.
Random debut of historical players, fictional movie characters (think Willie Mays Hayes, etc.), fast paced, active chat and trading, solid core of GMs and now some new blood as well. Come and join us, build your new team from scratch as we reboot.

Couple quick questions. When is the draft? How will the draft work is it live drafting through a bunch of rounds? When are the sims run and how many days per sim?
