Topic Alert! In your experience, what is the standard NL and AL only format? Still 14 batters/9 pitchers?


How are the 14 hitters/9 pitchers broken out? Does that number include bench spots?

Thanks Grey! Is this format contingent upon the number of teams in the league? We're at 7 teams right now in our NL-only league (2nd year of existence).

It's usually for a 10 or 12 team league. I'd go with a bigger bench for a 7 team league.
