    Default VOTING: Removing the Rookie League age restriction - FAILED

    Article I, Section B(1) of our constitution currently reads:

    B. Each team shall have four minor league organizations (AAA, AA, A, Rookie).

    1. Players on an organization's Rookie League team may not be older than 20 years of age as of Opening Day of that season, OR must be in his first professional season.
    If approved, Section B(1) will be repealed. Vote "YES" to repeal and "NO" to keep the above-quoted language in the constitution.

    22 "YES" votes are required.

    Discussion threads are here and here.

    This amendment would take effect starting with the 2042 season.

    Voting on this amendment will close at 10pm ET on Tuesday, April 24, 2012.

    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.
