    Default Stamford Rotisserie League seeks Owner - 4x4 Auction AL only - 31st year

    The Stamford (Connecticut) Rotisserie League is seeking an owner for one of its 12 franchises.

    The SRL began as the American Dreams league in 1981, an AL version of the original NL only Rotisserie League. That split over how to handle the 1981 player strike interruption, with the Founding Fathers siding with the franchises that began play as the Junior League in 1982. Owners in that league included Founding Fathers Glen Waggoner, Steve Wulf, Dick Krinsley. Jamie Krinsley and F. X. Flinn split off in 1988 when the Junior League divided into 3 successor leagues, as the founding fathers dropped out and the owners found themselves living in different parts of the NY area.

    In the 30 for 30 special "Silly Little Game" the SRL auction and YooHoo ceremony are shown during the opening sequence. Flinn is the one being doused in YooHoo as the title rises. The league plays for a trophy that is topped with a ball signed by the Founding Fathers (and cash, of course).

    Over the years, Jamie Krinsley and F. X. Flinn experimented with some of the rules, most notably, the SRL does not employ a FAAB but instead has a market mechanism that drives players to full value rapidly and mimics the arbitration process in MLB. Aside from that wrinkle, it is a very traditional Roti league. Buy in for the season is $265 plus stat fees (CBS Sports commissioner service) per franchise. You must commit to being present in person for the auction, which typically is the first Sunday following the first Wednesday of the baseball season, at 8:30 am in the library of the Stamford Hospital. A number of physicians and lawyers play in the league, but also a few IT guys and a couple of Wall Streeters. Several are retired.

    If you are interested, please contact me:
