2. The new Americam League has been created, the draft was completed last night with 5 teams of 12
3. The Masters League has lost a number of their top players to the new American League. The ML managers
met Tuesday night to figure out how to re-create their teams in the most fair way for all teams. Five of
the six mangers agreed to work together to make the Master League a balanced as possible. One
manager got angry and stomped out saying he and his players would not play in the CSSA. He has been
given the opportunity to reconsider, but has choosen not to do so. Now that the American League draft
is over and the available players known, the remaining five manager are meeting tonight to discuss the
method and proceedures for a major re-draft of the Masters League teams. Among other things they
