    Default Constitutional cleanup - article 12

    Article 12 of the constitution covers "technical matters". Proposed changes are noted in bold below, with related comments in red:

    ---------------------------------------------------------------
    XII. TECHNICAL MATTERS
    A. Designated Hitter
    1. The FOBL will use the DH league-wide.
    B. Amateur Draft
    3. All teams that make the playoffs will pick between #17 and #32, and will be seeded according to the order in which they were eliminated from the playoffs. Between 2 teams who were eliminated at the same level in the playoffs, the team with the better regular season record will have the lower pick. If the 2 teams have identical regular season records, the Commissioner will determine which team will pick first using a method that randomly determines the draft order of those teams.
    ---------------------------------------------------------------
    This is intended to keep consistent with our approach that all non-playoff teams draft before all playoff teams, while reflecting the reduction in teams and the approved increase in playoff teams.


    ------------------------------------------------------------------------
    D. Park Effects
    3. Future changes to ballpark effects can be made by a team once per every three sim years, at a cost of $2,015,000, which will then be distributed evenly among the remaining 31 owners. The amount is set at $2,015,000 because that amount results in each of the other
    teams receiving an even $65,000. If the number of teams in the FOBL changes from the current 36, this Amendment will immediately be revisited by the Board of Governors.
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------

    $2.015M is the closest I could come to the original amount of $2.1M and keep an "even" amount of cash for each other team.

    These should be considered housekeeping procedures.

    If approved, these changes will take effect immediately.

    The whole world is a circus if you look at it the right way. Every time you pick up a handful of dust, and see not the dust, but a mystery, a marvel, there in your hand, every time you stop and think, "I'm alive, and being alive is fantastic!" Every time such a thing happens, you are part of the Circus of Dr. Lao.
