New Leagues this Season

If you join Benchwarmer Baseball, when will you draft?  See the list below for our new leagues and expected draft dates.

  • Leagues are full once they reach 16 teams.
  • Because of the multiple-phase aspect of building a team, the entire process generally takes a couple of weeks, so don't put it off too long.
  • What to expect for the time needed to play Benchwarmer Baseball
  • You may switch leagues until the league is completely full.
  • League and division placement is permanent for the life of a franchise.
  • If you have several friends who want to join together, you can purchase a package to fill up a division, conference, or even a full league.
  • Do you want to skip the draft process altogether and pick up an "Orphan Team" in an existing league?  These orphans are still available.

These leagues are currently open

Live Drafts

League Draft Type Number of Teams Draft Date and Time

 

More on draft formats:

  • List Draft
    • The normal draft method in BWB.
    • You submit a list of up to 40 players - keeping under the salary cap.
    • There will be 2-3 follow-up phases to fill your rosters, since you won't get every player you want.
    • Once the league fills, the draft deadline will be set to final (roughly one week after the last team joins), but you can create your draft list immediately.
  • Live Draft
    • An "experiment" a couple years ago in BWB - with 16 owners to try to get together, it's tough to schedule - but we'll consider it again if there is demand.
    • The draft format is very primitive - we draft via chat room and you must be able to switch between several browser tabs/windows.
    • Teams will draft only the first 10 players. 
    • Remaining phases will be conducted like the list format. 
    • If a league does not fill by the draft date, a new date will be selected (and teams allowed to switch if that does not work).
    • Expect a live draft to take about 3 hours.
