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 12/11/2023 5:44 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 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 a Keeper League, which means you have $55 million to spend on keepers for next season. You must sign at least one player to a contract before the season ends, or you'll automatically be removed from the league after the World Series. Players under contract remain on their teams, all other players return to free agency for the next Quick Draft.
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.

Latest Public Board Post
12/11/2023 Ohtani to Dodgerswduncan
"He who shall not be named" was one of the worst owners in modern sports history. What a despicable person.

Regarding the signing, it's a lot of money but there has never been a player like Ohtani and I think there is a good chance we look back at this contract and the way it is structured and feel like the Dodgers got a good deal.
