On June 25th, Grifball Commissioner Jack announced the beginning of the Grifball Summer League 2008. The League would commence on Monday, July 14th and, for the first time ever, would be comprised of two simultaneous leagues: A Rookie League and a Legacy League.
You legacy teams that have been skating by in your divisions are going to be facing off against other legacy teams this season...this should be fun. This should also give rookie teams a chance to learn the sport before a punk vet team whomps away on their fresh hides.
Sign-ups took place in three rounds: First Legacy players, then Rookies with Rooster Teeth Sponsorship, and then finally everyone else.

The Legacy League was comprised of 12 divisions of five-to-six teams each, except for division 12 which had eleven teams.
