This is the first official call for discussion on the creation of the
Newsgroup NAME: rec.sport.baseball.college
Newsgroup STATUS: Unmoderated
Charter: To provide a forum for discussion of baseball on a
Purpose for creation: To 1) encourage discussion of baseball programs
in the universities all across the U.S. and 2) group them into one
specific area where concentrated discussion can be achieved without
being 'drowned out' by the incredible volume that professional
baseball gets on rec.sport.baseball.
Initial Discussion: The topic was first introduced in June of 1991
during the Collegiate Playoffs/World Series, when several posters
expressed a concern that rec.sport.baseball was too large of a forum
for discussions about collegiate baseball.
A 'feeler' post was made two weeks ago by myself on the subject of
rec.sport.baseball.college on rec.sport.baseball, and I received
several supportive mail messages encouraging the creation of the
group -- and one negative post to the newsgroup rec.sport.baseball.
The discussion period will be for three weeks (Jan. 17th - Feb. 7th)
If a consensus is reached on name, status and charter by that time, I
will proceed with a call for votes.
