Welcome to the Auto League

Auto Leagues are seasons that last about two months (baseball) or one month (basketball), with 2 or 3 sims per day. Since this league is run with essentially no commissioner, there is a trade limit. Please be reasonable with your transactions, and report any bad owners using the feedback form.

League Status:
Season underway. Next sim around 5/19/2022 6:19 AM PT.

Draft Type:
Quick Draft

Owners Joined:
12 of 12
You can draft your team as soon as you sign up! You will select one player from each positional group until you have 23 players. (The Draft link appears on the league homepage and your team page when you are signed in.)

The draft only represents a random subset of players available. Once the season begins, you can adjust your roster via free agency or trades. (You can carry up to 25 players on your major league roster.)

Supplemental Draft
Once the season begins, you can start ranking players for the supplemental drafts, which take place after Games 2 & 3. Free agency (waivers) will open after the Supplemental Draft runs on Day 4. Please be sure to read the League Rules for further details!
This is NOT a keeper league, so once your team's season is over, you can stay in this league and re-draft next season, or quit and join a new Auto League.
When do games start?
After all teams have an owner and have drafted, the games will begin. You will get an email after the first game notifying you that the league has started.

What time are games played?
Barring any issues with the servers, games are auto-simmed 2 or 3 times a day, starting as early as 1:00am and ending as late as 11:00pm Pacific Time. Users can sim games from the My League List page every eight hours. This allows the league to keep moving if the server has issues or the participants in the league want to move the season along slightly faster than the auto sims allow. There will always be at least eight hours between games so managers can react if desired.

Can I customize my team?
Yes! You can change your team name, logo, and more via the "Owner Console" on your "My Team" page before the season begins and up until the 5th game of the season.

World Series and post-season
Division winners and three wild card reach the post-season. Owners can leave the league once their team is elimnated, or wait until the playoffs are over and re-draft the next season.

I'm always eager to here what you enjoy or think can be improved with the site, so stay in touch via the feedback form and follow site updates on the news & notes page.

5/18/2022Mobile App Updategbacci
The new baseball app has gotten approved for iOS - functionally it's not much different, but it feels like it runs more smoothly (at least it does for me on my iPhone).

I did vastly improve and simplify the sign-up process on the app since it was sort of clunky on the old version.

(One bummer for donors - Paypal has seemed to stop working on the app, so only Stripe donations work.)

If you have your apps set to auto-update, it will probably be pushed to you in the next week or so. Or, you can go update it on your own. If you just LOVE the current one, I suppose there is no harm in keeping it as is.

Android fans, stay tuned - hope to make some progress there in the coming days/weeks.

You can really use either sport's app, the idea was to make one for each to appeal to the fans of each sport - the only difference is you can't get to other sports' leaderboards and FAQs, etc. but you can get to your leagues on either one.

I still think the browser is going to be the best performance for the site, but the app is there as an option and sometimes it's nice to have things contained without distractions.

As always, positive reviews help if you are so inclined!
