The intent of the Pacific Coast League is to be an enjoyable, fun league for CSFBL players that prefer a league with an historical theme.
All league owners shall be expected to conduct themselves in accordance with CSFBL Acceptable Use Policy. Owners shall be expected to treat each other with appropriate respect and consideration. Further, no owner shall intentionally instigate or cause derision between other league members or commissioners. All owners shall, to the best of their ability, strive to ensure the league remains competitive, active, and enjoyable. Elements of the league will require more involvement from participation owners than some other CSFBL leagues.
Participation in the league forums is a requirement of the league membership. From time to time, league-wide discussion threads will be posted and all members are expected to post in response.
Owners shall be expected to be as competitive as possible at all times. If at any time an owner shall fail to win 90 games over a two season stretch (45 per season average), he or she shall be subject to removal from the League at the discretion of the League Commissioners.
All team names shall be unchangeable once assigned. The 24 team names in use shall be:
Team Stadium sizes shall reflect historical sizes and shall be permanent unless an owner petitions the League Commissioners for a change to another acceptable historical size. Sizes have been determined as best as possible to reflect the historical stadium sizes of the respective teams.
All trades must be posted in the designated forum thread prior to or within 24 hours of acceptance. While trades do not need to be approved prior to execution, all trades shall be subject to review by the League Commissioners. Trades to acquire players due your team as a result of the draft do not need to be posted.
Draft picks may be traded in accordance with the following schedule:
The Pacific Coast League will hold a live draft each season in the PCL Chat Room. Owners who are unable to participate in the scheduled live draft shall be required to designate a proxy to participate in the draft on his/her behalf. A proxy may be anyone else in the league or a non-league member but should not be a PCL Commissioner.
Basic rules of the live draft are as follows:
As is customary, all owners shall be responsible for setting their draft preferences in the CSFBL interface to coincide with those players drafted.
Further, all owners shall be required to have room in their low minors at the time of the draft sim date (7/15) to accommodate drafted players.
