This will also mark the week of the MLB Trade Deadline, coming on Friday at 4pm EDT, and the WFBL Trade Deadline following on Sunday at 11:59pm PDT.

The Joplin Tornadoes (13-3) took over the WFBL's best record and opened a 3.5 game lead in the Kalas/Central after blowing away their traditional rival Portland Wolfpack (7-9) by a 10-1 score at the Wolf Den. It was a 5th straight victory for the Twisters.
At Rosenblatt Stadium, the host Omaha Royals (11-3-2) battled the visiting Detroit Drillers (8-5-3) to a 6-6 draw, increasing their lead to 3.5 games in the Mack/West race. Detroit feel to 2 back in the Wildcard race.
The Georgia Travellers (6-10) thrilled the home fans at Peach Tree Park in a dramatic 6-5 win over the Montreal Expos (12-4), dropping the visitors into a tie atop the Owens/East race.
At Liberty Bell Park, the host Philadelphia Athletics (12-4) moved into a tie atop the Owens/East standings and took a 2.5 game lead on a Wildcard berth after holding off the visiting Alabama Farmers (5-11) by a 6-5 score.
The Boston Bulldogs (11-4-1) took a key battle with the host Rayne Rajin' Cajuns (9-6-1) by 8-3 at Frog City Field, moving the Dawgs within a half game of the Owens/East lead, and 2 games up in the Wildcard race. Rayne dropped those 2 back in the WC, and 3.5 back in the Kalas/Central race.
At Emerald City, the visiting Horsham Chargers (5-11) won their 2nd straight in stampeding past the host Eugene Emeralds (2-13-1) by an 8.3 score.
The New York Knights (4-10-2) journeyed out to the desert and came back with a big 9-3 win over the host Las Vegas High Rollers (4-8-4) at World Series of Poker Stadium.

You should check to ensure that all players you control have your club initials next to them on the Master, and that no player has your initials whom you do not control.
Check that your players have the proper MLB team assignment. Check that their position eligibility for WFBL purposes is listed properly for all Majors-eligible players.
Check that you always are within the legal limits of 25 in Majors, 15 in AAA, 10 in AA. In your Minors, ensure that hitters in AAA have not reached 1,000 Plate Appearances, and that pitchers in AAA have not reached 400 Innings Pitched or 120 Games Pitched.

You should likewise check the CBS site during the season to ensure that all player information there reflects properly, especially your current starting lineup. Also ensure that any players listed as under your control actually are, and let the Commissioner know if any player you do control is not listed, but appears to be in the CBS database. In the off-season, ensure that any moves you make to clean up your roster are reflected at CBS as well.
Let the Commissioner know immediately of any needed adjustments that come to your attention. Paying close attention to your individual roster and the entire league is what helps keep the WFBL running smoothly.
