It's February, players begin reporting to Spring training next week, so it's finally not "too early" to start talking about fantasy baseball.
I am creating a 12-man, 5x5, H2H fantasy baseball league this season. For the draft, I have reserved us a VIP Box at Busch Stadium on March 24th to perform our draft. The box will be all you can eat and drink, slammed with good food (Smokehouse Menu on STL Cards catering page) and an open bar! In addition, everyone will get a specially made St. Louis Cardinals game day draft hat and two 2013 "Marty Pass" ticket vouchers which can be used for any non-blackout, weekday home game. League fees will be $400, and that includes all the above draft expenses. League payouts will be to the top three places in the amounts of $2500, $750, and $400, respectively. There will also be an authentic Louisville Slugger bat, engraved with our league name and the winning owner/team names, that the league will use as its champion's traveling trophy.
As we all know, fantasy leagues can come in practically any shape with varying rules and styles. If you're interested, I ask you to please review the constitution to ensure you fully understand the league.

I love the Cardinals and fantasy baseball and I really look forward to getting a good, competitive, semi-local league put together this season. I've already filled half the slots, so the first 6 to send me a team name, a brief bio with contact info, and the full league fees will be in. I'll accept the payments by either meeting locally (Springfield, MO) or PayPal- whichever you're most comfortable with. Once all 12 teams have been identified, I'll create a group for us to all interact within. Please feel free to contact me via phone, text, or e-mail at anytime if you're interested or have any questions, comments, or concerns.
