Our League started in March 1971 as a "straight team" replay (League members managed the actual Major League teams).  Jeff Fleischman is the League Commissioner, taking over direction and naming the League  G.U.S.S.O.M.O. two months into the beginning of the first season when the original Commissioner (who was in the Air Force at the time) informed all the Original League members that he was being transferred from Northern California to Germany and would not be able to continue running the League. He sent all the League material (paperwork and statistics... minus, of course, the League treasury/dues) to Jeff... who re-organized and cleaned things up and has been running the League ever since.
