4/24/2019Bad News Bears League wants YOU!GusPC13
The Bad News Bears League has one opening to fill - the Charlestown Chiefs are available again. In this league, there are NO Star Players. No Ruth, Gehrig, Trout, Pedro, or Kershaw. Only mediocre players battling it out for the fame they never found in real life. We're starting Season 4 in a few days. We've had 3 different champions, and there is a lot of parity in the league. In Season 3, the 8th Seed in the playoffs won it all (New York Knights), beating the 7th Seeded Mudville Nine in the World Series. The first two WS champs missed the playoffs this past season - that's how unpredictable the league is.

If you're interested, find the BNBL on the Join Leagues page under Custom Leagues. Check out the Rules Page, and then jump in! Great group of owners and lots of fun!
