Meeting Discussion:
We need to drop some teams for majors baseball for the 2019 season
Donny explained we had 6 teams x 11 players = 66 players
- 34 - 12 years old leaving
- leaves 32 players remaining in the league
44 kids total in minor league
Proposal for 2019:
- drop 2 teams - go to 4 teams of 11 players
- would need to do a redraft
- we would still need to bring up 12 kids
- suggested going to 10, 11, 12 for majors
Kristen & Jenn will draft a letter to minors and majors re redraft - show numbers and explain why it is

Committee will discuss how to proceed with draft and teams/sponsors/managers
committee for majors team discussion: meeting Tuesday @ 7pm
