I don't have a problem with having two pro leagues for one sport, but I do have a problem with inter-league play. With my system, there will still be two leagues, the Grapefruit League (GL) & the Melon League (ML.) However, making two teams that play with different rules play each other doesn't work. With my system, there will be no inter-league play, & The All-Star Game won't mean anything (there will still be a World Series.) "Major League Baseball," will only have three rules, the rest shall be made by each league. The MLB rules are:
- Never shall a team from the Grapefruit League & the Melon League play each other, except in the World Series.
- Each League must allow a Designated Hitter to be used.
- In the World Series, or All-Star game, the home team's League rules will be used.
Each league will have four divisions with four teams based loosely on location.
This one is simple, put all the most south east teams in the most southern division.
As I said at the top, with 15 teams, you can't have even divisions, so I've given two cities expansion teams in each league, in this league, I gave Montreal the Expos back.
Put the Western most teams in the most Western division.
My second expansion team, Jacksonville's AA Suns will move to Panama City, & they'll get a MLB team with the same name.
Three of these teams were in the central. They're now in the northeast to make room for the central.
Now I'm starting to see a few teams that aren't in their closest division.
The most location based division of all.
