Welcome to the Auto League

Auto Leagues are seasons that last about two months (baseball) or one month (basketball & football). Baseball and Baksetball sim about 2-3 games per day, while Football sims one game 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 7/25/2024 12:56 PM PT.

Draft Type:
Quick Draft

Owners Joined:
12 of 12
You can draft your team as soon as you sign up! You will select any franchise that has not already been selected. You'll build your roster based on a budget. (The Draft link appears on the league homepage and your team page when you are signed in.)

When you draft, you must meet the minimum roster requirements to avoid getting removed from the league, but you can draft more players than the minimum if you have budget left over.

NO TRADE LEAGUE
This is a special format with NO TRADES. The idea is to play with franchise players. In baseball only, there will be some low-quality free agents to account for injuries. 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.
You can start ranking players for the draft as soon as you sign up! (The Draft link appears on the league homepage and your team page when you are signed in.)

In Daily Draft leagues, once the league fills, a draft round will run once every eight hours until all teams have 14 players. Once the draft is complete games will begin! Free agency opens after the first games. Please be sure to read the League Rules for further details!

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.

Play-offs
Top six teams make the play-offs with the top two teams getting a first-round bye. Teams will get re-seeded so the best team plays the lowest available seed in the second round. All series are best of seven. 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.

Yeah, super excited to try this. The ‘other season available’ option is gonna be fun to play with. Also gonna be neat to see how this totally different player pool shakes out. In the old format, MVP was gonna be 1 of 3 players (Oh, Tsuruoka, or occasionally Katoh) and Cy Young goes to Hideo Fujimoto. Three of the 4 players mentioned aren’t even available anymore. It’s a whole new ballgame.
