Protected/Unprotected List | 1919 Expansion: A look back

» How it Will Get Done

INTRODUCTION

The 11-step process, set by the Expansion Committee (Robert Fermann, Adam Goldberg, and Jesus Diaz), is based completely on the BVL Rule Book. The Committee made modifications only to language that would be affected by the addition of two new clubs and the increase in schedule to 70 games (see: The Regular Season, The Voting, Rosters, Trade Deadline, and We Need Damn Action Clause, below).

Notes:
1. In The Voting, Rosters, and Trade Deadline sections, all figures were based on the 54-/70-game proportion (fractions rounded up).
2. In the We Need Damn Action Clause, deadlines were increased by a total of 8 weeks.
3. The decision to place Brick Church in National Division was based solely on request made by Jesus Diaz. *
* - If LES desires to be in the National Division (and who would blame him), Mr. Diaz agrees to roll for it before Dec. 30th.

4. The process is subject to change, requiring 7 yes votes on proposals sent to Commissioner JJ Jesselli's office.


EXPANSION, FREE AGENT DRAFTS: HOW IT WILL GET DONE

1. All existing clubs, i.e., non-expansion clubs, must submit a list of 15 protected players. Lists are due two weeks after the 1933 cards are received by their club owners.
2. Only non-protected players will be drafted.

Exception:
players at Single A and Double A during the 1932 BVL season.


3. The draft is four rounds with each expansion team choosing 32 players.
4. The Lower East Side Con-Men selects the first player; the Brick Church Foys, the first player in the second round. After that, both expansion clubs will alternate the first pick of each round.

Note:
During the Free Agent Draft, the Brick Church Foys will choose from the 9th spot; LES, 10th.


5. During the first three rounds, all existing clubs can lose TWO players only, per round.
6. In the first and second rounds, each existing team losing a player can protect three players.
7. In the third round, each existing team losing a player can protect two players.
8. In the fourth round, each existing team losing a player can protect one player.

Note:
After completion of expansion draft, all existing teams can protect 42 players before the Free Agent Draft.


9. At the conclusion of the Expansion Draft -- and after the player cuts are announced -- the bidding for Free Agents begins.

Note:
See Free Agent Draft to determine order of expansion clubs.


10. 15-round Free Agent draft begins after the rosters are trimmed to 42 players; expansion clubs pick #9 and #10 in each round.
11. A supplementary draft, if necessary, for expansion clubs to reach 50-man rosters. Follow the order set in Free Agent Draft.


THE REGULAR SEASON
a. Lower East Side Con-Men will join the American Division; Brick Church Foys, the National.
b. 70 games: 40 inter-division games (4 clubs x 10 games), plus 30 intra-division (5x6)

Note: rewrite Note 14.1 to state:
The entire regular season will be completed.


THE VOTING [Clause 16.04]
To maintain 66 per cent approval margin, 7 votes are needed for passage of simple rules.

ROSTERS [Clause 12.04]
Only players on the major league roster or disabled list as of Game 57 are eligible for post-season play.

TRADE DEADLINE [Clause 13.01]
The trading period runs from the end of the previous season to Game 57 of the current season. Trades between Games 58 through 70 are invalid.

WE NEED DAMN ACTION CLAUSE [Clause 14.04]
a. Clubs are required to complete half of their regular season schedule by the First Deadline, or 20 weeks from the first Sunday the owners meeting was completed.
b. Clubs are required to play their 55th game by the Second Deadline, or 10 weeks after the First Deadline.
c. Season ends 10 weeks after the Second Deadline.
