The Offseason Schedule

After the end of the regular season, annual awards and lifetime achievements are declared:

  • All-Stars (September 30th)
  • Most Valuable Player (October 10th)
  • Cy Young (October 10th)
  • Rookie of the Year (October 10th)
  • Fireman of the Year (October 10th)
  • Gold Gloves (October 20th)
  • Hall of Fame (October 30th)

On November 2nd of a league's season, the season "flips". Essentially, the current season ends and the game fast-forwards to the next year's pre-season. When a season "flips", the following takes place:

  • Players decide whether or not to retire (based on career happiness)
  • Players meet with arbitrators and get their contracts for the next season (contract dollars are based on a player's ratings and age)
  • Players age by one year and may experience increases and/or decreases in ratings
  • Additional Free Agents (FA) are automatically signed if a team's roster is below the league minimum 25 players (due to retirements)

Please note: Leagues which have less than 12 owned teams at the end of a season will be suspended from advancing to the next season.
