Hey folks, Happy Baseball is a 20-team standard 5x5 roto league on ESPN, with lineage dating back to 1998.
We have 4 open spots this year and are hoping to add some new managers to rejuvenate the ranks.

Settings for the upcoming season:
- 20 team x 24 players (11 hitters + 9 pitchers + 4 bench) + 3 DL = 480-540 players
- Starting Positions: C 1B 2B 3B SS IF 4OF UTIL SP RP 7P 4Bench
- Innings maximum 1500

We like to draft early in this league!
Looking to begin the Lottery when pitchers and catchers report, with Round 1 starting somewhere around the first full team workouts.
The February start time allows for some relaxed fun, and helps teams get prepared before RIBC drafts kicks into gear.

Projected Calendar:
Lottery = February 10th
Rd 1 = February 17th
33% = February 25th
66% = March 2nd
100% = March 7th
Opening Day = March 29th

If this sounds like something you might enjoy, please express your interest below. Thanks.

So you use Batting Average? 🤦‍♂️ Do the catchers use a mask? When you hit a ball that bounces over the fence, is that a home run in this league? Black players allowed?

What about switching to OBP? Sometimes it takes a new set of 👀 to point out something needs to be fixed.

SZ has taken the last spot. Lottery has begun.

re 10: That may be something we could put to a vote in the future.
