How would you describe your role?
I'm still learning my role.
I'm a follower.
I'm a leader.
How do you feel about the GBL so far?
I hate it.
I don't like it.
I feel neutral.
I like it.
I love it.
Should GBL be more serious, or remain relaxed?
I prefer to keep it a laid back "sandlot style" league.
I would like to take things more seriously.
Somewhere in between (like mens' softball leagues).
How do you feel about membership fees?
Bad idea. I wouldn't continue playing.
I like it. It would provide uniforms, night games, better baseballs, and ensure that people are serious about playing.
Don't have membership fees, but individuals need to help out more.
How do you feel about 3 man teams?
I like it just how it is.
I'd rather go back to each person having their own record.
I'd prefer to have even more people per team.
It's ok for now, but teams should grow as the league grows.
How do you like having 2 entities (AL/NL)?
It seems pointless to me.
I like it because it allows for All-Star Games and Postseason organization.
I'd like to have even more separation.
How do you feel about MLB Team Representation?
Keep it, it's fun.
I'd rather name my own team.
How do you feel about "Divisions" instead of "Leagues"?
I like having AL/NL, each with their own rules and leaders (MLB format).
I'd rather have "divisions" and all be one league (NFL format).
I don't want any separation, just a bunch of teams.
How would you prefer league/division organization?
Based on location.
Based on skill level.
Based on age of the team.
Do you prefer to have everybody play together, or have separate games?
Keep it how it is, with everybody in one place.
Split it up, 2 teams play each other at one place, another 2 somewhere else, etc.
How do you feel about having captain/player contracts?
Allow contracts, but don't require them.
Require at least 1 year contracts.
Don't allow contracts, but but allow players to stay on a team year-to-year.
Don't allow contracts, and have captains re-draft players each year.
Who should be responsible for supplying baseballs, equipment, etc.?
The home captain of each game should be responsible.
The League should be responsible for everything at every game.
Membership fees should be collected at the start of each season to cover the costs.
Each player should have their own equipment, and chip in and provide baseballs, etc.
Who should the GBL allow as new players?
I like our current standards.
Allow college/semi-pro players.
Eliminate interviews and accept anybody, regardless of personality.
Should the GBL have a min/max age?
No, allow anybody who's able to keep up.
Set a minimum age of 17, legally an adult in MO.
Set a maximum age of 30.
Would you like more uniformity with rules?
No, I like to change it up sometimes.
Yes, it's too confusing to change every week. Make things the exact same on a daily basis.
Maybe tighten up with some things, but flexibility is needed.
Do you favor a minimum attendance mandate?
No, I like to keep it relaxed.
Yes, players need some sort of incentive to show up.
No, but players with low attendance need to be used as Reserves only.
How do you feel about home run distances?
It's perfect how it is.
Make it farther. Too many home runs are hit.
Shorten it. I'd like to see more home runs.
Would you like to see live base running?
No, keep the ghost runners until we have 9 v. 9 games.
Yes, but a hybrid with the current rules.
Yes, but only if we reach a minimum number of players. Otherwise, keep ghost runners.
Yes, allow full base running, even if there are open positions in the field.
Do you prefer to travel, or play at one place all the time?
I'd like to play at the same place at the same time every game.
I like to travel and play at different fields each week.
Should games be held every weekend, or do you enjoy having breaks?
I like playing every single weekend.
I'd like to see a few off weekends, but just every now and then.
I'd like to reduce games to every other weekend.
How long do you like games to last?
Do you like double headers?
No, they're exhausting.
Yes, I like as much baseball as I can get.
Maybe sometimes, but not every weekend.
What do you prefer in the event of rain?
Cancel the game, and give every team a win.
Reschedule the game for a later date.
Play on, no matter how bad it gets.
Do you support a run rule?
No, we came to play a full game.
Yes, blowouts are exhausting.
How should the All-Star Game be organized?
Have a public vote for 3-5 players from each side.
Allow everyone on a team to play, and determine All-Stars based on performance.
Eliminate the All-Star Game, and have only the Home Run Derby.
How should Postseason be organized?
The best team from each league/division should go straight to a Championship.
Host a tournament that involves a fresh start for every team.
Host a tournament that rewards the better teams, and excludes teams with poor attendance.
