Manager's Meeting - February 26
The winter Manager's Meeting will be held on Sunday, February 26 at 3:00pm. It will take place at the Courtyard by Marriott in Ankeny, 2405 SE Creekview Dr. Ankeny, IA 50021. Attendance by a manager, coach or representative from each team desiring to play in 2017 is mandatory.
Free Agent List
Recently, the league put forth a marketing effort with a Facebook blast to promote our league. This has resulted in an influx of free agents looking to play. The purpose behind this was for the league to form additional teams, primarily in our 18+ & 25+ divisions. The league plans to hold some workouts for these free agents and identify those that would be best fits for managing teams. We are attempting to build new teams and not necessarily supplement current teams. However, if you are a current team with a need for players, exceptions will be made. If you are a current manager desiring to pick up a listed free agent, please reach out to our Player Relations Director, Todd Thomas.
