What is the procedure for drafting the teams? JOBL prides itself on creating evenly matched teams. JOBL does this by working hard to ensure that each and every team is as equal as possible going into each season. Managers, coaches and league personnel all are involved in the evaluation process where attempts to rate all players as fairly as possible are undertaken. From there, drafts are conducted. At the draft, cards are drawn for each round to ensure that each team has a chance to pick first or at least early and the draft is a serpentine draft. Only a manager's child(s) and one coaches' child(s) are automatically placed on a team. All other players are then chosen following procedures set out in Section 13 under Team Selection found in the 2021 League Rules. What we are trying to accomplish is to make sure each team has the same amount of each category of players.
