If it's not obvious, this is the official thread for the GWJ Out of the Park Baseball League. This thread is for commiserations, complains, notes, trade proposals, trash-talking (keep it light please) and other various crap. However, this thread is for posts regarding the GWJ league only. If you have a general OOTP comment, there's a thread for that.
The GWJ Baseball League (GWJBL) is currently simulating seasons of the North American Baseball League (NABL), a 16-team league starting in 2011. 25 years of baseball have been simulated prior, with all history deleted and all players being re-drafted in a fantasy draft as of the inaugural 2011 season.

IF YOU WISH TO JOIN THE LEAGUE: You wanna sign up for the GWJBL? Fantastic! Two things though.
1.) New owners will only be added in the off-season, after the inaugural season. If you want to join, and we're in May, you're gonna be waiting for a while. If you want to join and we're all full up, the league GMs will vote on expansion.
2.) New owners need to be of at least "Intern" status or have another member of the league vouch for them. This isn't a hard-and-fast rule, and if your application to take on a team is totally awesome, you'll be let in. However, if you're new to GWJ, hang out a bit, post a few times, let us all get to know you, then apply. Ideally. Again, this rule is not set in stone.
If you still want in, and neither of these things are an issue, drop the commish a line a Prederick at gmail dot com.
Please see the post below for the league rules.
