A. Draft lists will be made available to managers as soon as possible after the final evaluation date.
B. Known players not attending evaluations will be assigned rating points by the CC. Known pitchers will be assigned pitching points by the CC if they did not participate in pitcher tryouts. If the CC is not familiar with an unrated player, it will attempt to gather information in order to assign an appropriate rating. Otherwise, any unrated players will be assigned by the CC at the end of the draft.
C. A maximum of two representatives per team are allowed to attend the draft. Additionally, board members may attend any draft. A parent who is not a manager may not attend his/her daughter’s draft until she has been chosen. If a team is not represented at a draft, the board will select a board member to draft for that team.
D. The CC will assign all manager’s daughter as first round selections.
E. The CC may, at its discretion, restrict designated players pitching eligibility to 2 innings per game. The CC will determine the reduced pitching points for each of these players. Restricting pitching points is not be used to gain a competitive advantage.
F. A manager wishing to draft a family relative other than his/her daughter must request that she be assigned to be selected at a certain point in the draft as if she was an additional daughter. If such a request is not made prior to the draw for initial draft sequence, the manager forfeits the opportunity to draft the additional family relative. The CC may decline such a request in order to preserve an equitable distribution of talent among all teams. If the additional family relative is also a pitcher, the CC may apply one of the pitching restrictions listed above.
G. Upon parent request, the CC may apply pitcher rating points adjustments, accompanying pitching restrictions, and procedure for lifting said restrictions to pitchers who are NOT managers’ daughters.
H. Once a manager has selected four players, pitching points will be waived for each subsequent selection by that manager.
A. The player agent will report the number of players to be drafted, and the number of players needed to complete a team roster. For example, if 90 players are to be drafted onto 8 teams, the draft will end with 6 teams of 11 players, and 2 teams of 12 players.
B. A discussion among managers and the CC will be held to review player ratings to identify any players who may not be properly rated. The player agent
may allow each manager up to 3 challenges, any decision regarding amending player ratings will be made by the CC.
C. The player agent will identify all managers’ daughters, and other relatives if applicable, and the draft pick assigned to each. In the event a manager has multiple daughters, the CC will determine to round selection of subsequent daughters. In the event a manager does not have a daughter, the CC may mandate that manager select an impact pitcher with their first draft selection.
D. The player agent identifies special requests, such as those for a manager, or “same team as” another player.
E. With prior approval of a majority of the managers at a draft, the CC may assign one or more players to be selected by a specific manager at a certain point in the draft. Point of assignment must be based on the player’s rating, as related to all players in the draft. These assignments will only be made if the CC is certain that they will not grant an unfair competitive advantage to a team. Only in the most extreme circumstances should the CC make special assignments in early rounds of a draft.
F. “Not this manager” or “not the same team as” requests WILL NOT BE IDENTIFIED unless deemed necessary by the player agent.
G. Order of the draft will be determined by the lowest total points assigned to each team at any given point in the draft. In the event managers have equally rated players, a draw will be held to determine selection order.
H. When a manager selects a player, her total rating points are added to that team’s “bank.” After each manager has selected one player, the next team to select will be the team that has the lowest cumulative points banked. In the event of a tie, the team that has gone the longest without a pick will select first.
I. When two or more sisters, or other relatives wishing to play together are listed in the same draft, the team drafting the first sister will add the second and each subsequent relative in a specific round determined by each player’s rating.
J. This procedure will continue until all rated players have been chosen. Unrated players will be assigned by the CC.
K. After the draft, trading is allowed only with the consent of both trading managers and the player agent. After draft night, independent trades are not allowed.
L. Prior to leaving the draft, all managers will confirm their rosters with the player agent to insure that each player has been correctly assigned.
A. Teams with less than full rosters are eligible to receive late sign-ups. If only one team has an available roster spot, that team will receive the late sign-up. If more than one team has an available roster spot, the late sign-up(s) will be assigned by the CC. A new player should not be recruited under the assumption that she will be assigned to an open roster spot on a certain team. No player will be assigned to a team until registration forms have been received by the league, and fees have been paid.
B. The CC reserves the right to assign a late sign-up to a certain team based on a specific need. Examples include the need for a specific position player, or for family relations to play on the same team. Equitable distribution of talent is the highest priority factor used in making player assignment decisions.
