"Baseball was mighty and exciting to me, but there is no blinking at the fact that at the time the game was thought, by solid sensible people, to be only one degree above grand larceny, arson, and mayhem."

-Connie Mack on base ball in the 1880's-

1998 Trade Listing

 [ ] The 1998 Trading Season commenced on February 1, 1998. It opened spectacularly with the first eight trades listed below, and continued until the All-Star Series at the 100 Game Mark. Normally, there is no trading allowed until after the World's Series, when there is a short two-week trading Session before the Winter No-Trade Season. However, this year, with The Disbandment and creation of the American Association, there is a slightly different format, as outlined below from original Commissioner's Letters:

  1. The deadline for Minor/Major callups and send downs is 11:59 PM, August 15.
  2. The Executive Committee has decided to open up a one day trading window for remaining OOSL teams before the period of trading with the open player pool begins. This wil occur on Sunday August 16.
  3. The period of open trading with the player pool remains TBA in terms of specific date. Right now the plan is for it to last two weeks in duration.
  4. Only Owners who have paid their dues by August 15 you will be able to participate in callups/send downs, the one day trade window, or the open trading with the player pool!
  5. There will be no 1999 Annual Draft.
