run at the plate twice in extra innings in game four.  Bowling Green ended
winning in the twelfth, then exploded for 25 runs in the next two games to
take the

Before we ask teams to send in their off-season cuts, we need to have a vote
on two potential roster rule changes which can affect roster decisions.
I will send out the ballot in a separate e-mail, but these are the proposed

2022-1) Make 2021 temporary rules and 0.3.3 permanent (26 man
active roster).
rationale:  MLB appears to have permanently switched to 26 man active

2022-2) Change active/inactive roster limit from 35 to 36 players.
Requires multiple edits but the primary one is section 3.2.2.
rationale:  Keeps the number of inactive players consistent at 10.  Larger
MLB active roster results in more MLB players in the pool (assume this is
mostly pitchers).

Also, remember that this year we return to our normal rules in which
players take up a roster spot.

The Stadium Draft will be scheduled at some point during the off-season, so
about whether you would like to participate.

Unowned stadiums are currently:
CIN Great American Ballpark, COL Coors Field, DET Comerica Park, LAA Angel
of Anaheim, NYA Yankee Stadium, WAS Nationals Park
