La Liga Béisbol del Caimán — the ABL winter league

¡Bienvenidos a La Liga!

Welcome to the LBC!
Welcome to La Liga Béisbol del Caimán, the inaugural winter league of the ABL. La Liga, or "the LBC" (appropriately based in the other LBC...) is designed to serve at the very least as an entertaining distraction while we wait for Major League Baseball to return, and for the world to safely resume spinning in its normal state. The pool of players is slightly different from what we would have drafted on 3/21 — it includes big leaguers from 1970-2019.

This website — which, to be honest, I am still figuring out — lets us draft players and create rosters with the point being to create lineups for head-to-head games, running through a schedule. There's also a mobile version. I think there's availability for as much tinkering as you want, down to in-game changes. I hope there's also the chance to set a lineup and forget it, if you'd rather, just coming back to check the box scores day after day. We will explore this together!

No prizes, no purses, just a chance to dive into a pretty extraordinary player pool and have fun while we're waiting for the real thing, enjoying a little distraction from everything outside.

I set aside teams for each ABL owner, with names to identify whose is whose. Once you've claimed yours, please feel free to go in and make any changes you desire, to home city, team name, logo, etc. There are even park adjustments; I left all those neutral, but what the hell — go ahead and tinker, if you want.

So, it's unfortunate, but our 31st anniversary season of the Alligator Baseball League remains dormant.
The league isn't dead... but long live La Liga! ¡Venceremos!

Muchisimas gracias y saludos cordiales,

Latest Public Board Post
Not sure I fully understand how progressions work and how they would apply depending on a custom league setup.
If the league is set to allow users to choose seasons for their players over a range of years how would progressions effect that?
