II. Transactions
A. Contracts
SSG Out of the Park Baseball handles all contracts, including extensions, within the game itself–if the software will allow it and the player accepts, you’re free to offer whatever contract and incentives you wish.

B. Trading
The trade period runs from the end of the World Series up until July 31st.
Recently drafted players can be traded in the off-season of that season.
We do not allow player to be named later (PTBNL) trades.
A player who has been signed to a new team cannot be traded within the first 90 days of that new contract.

A trade must fit the following criteria in order for it to be processed:

• A thread must be started on the forum listing the players involved as well as the team and level the player can be found in that team’s most recent export

• The other team(s) involved must reply and approve the deal in the same thread

• Both teams must provide reasoning for the deal. A paragraph wouldn’t kill anyone

• The trade must NOT add to a team’s negative “Total Money Available” balance. “Total Money Available” can be found in the Front Office–>Finances–>Budget Information screen
Note: In the offseason, teams can increase their available cash at the expense of lowering their scouting and/or development budget

• The players involved in the deal must not be injured (failed physical), but can be dealt if their injury is only day-to-day

C. Miscellaneous
1. Playoff Roster Eligibility
A player must be on the 40-man roster to be eligible for the playoffs, otherwise they are not eligible to be added to the parent club’s playoff roster.

III. GM Activity Expectations

We expect an export regularly. If we do not receive an export in ten days you will be removed from the league.
