Quick Start Guide

1) Draft any player, of any season, throughout recorded baseball history:  1871 to present.  All eligibile players are listed in the Batter and Pitcher Player Set's above.

2) Drafting is done "live" over the course of 2-3 weeks.  Use this Google Doc's Tool to post.

3) 28 Players need to be selected, they can be any mix of batters and pitchers.

4) Simulation results are based upon the players real life stats AND the era in which they played in.  40 HR in 2006 (NL Avg ERA was 4.49) is not as impressive as 40 HR in 1968 (NL Avg ERA was 3.43).  Bear this in mind, and this file of average stats by year will help.

5) And don't forget stadiums matter too.  Don't expect Colorado's Todd Helton to be a batting powerhouse if you play him Comerica park.

6) The Rules page explains player eligibility in more detail

7) The About DMB page explains how the game engine itself operates
