March 31st, 2019 - Age 16 free agents nuked
There were a number of free agents that were actually just test players, but inadvertently got released into the free agent pool. There were intended to be retired, but somehow the logic didn't quite work. A few of the more talent players were picked up by lucky teams – but these players aren’t valid or complete, so they must remain retired. I have made their ages appropriate for retired players and am allowing their teams to release these players on their own time line. Apologize for the misunderstanding & inconvenience.

With the announcement of three star fielders retiring at the end of the season, management has begun rebuilding the Athletics with younger, faster and more athletic players. According to veteran first year manager George Howells, "It's time to give the young guys a chance to shine in the majors. There may be some lean years ahead but I promise an exciting brand of baseball." - ryansrats
