Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Disaster draft or contingency draft refers to the procedures North American major sports leagues have developed to rebuild a team's roster if many players are disabled or killed. No major league team has yet suffered accidents on the scale of the plane crashes that killed every or almost every member of the 1961 United States figure skating team, 1970 Wichita State University football team, 1970 Marshall University football team, 1977 University of Evansville basketball team, or 1980 United States boxing team. Perhaps the closest that a major league team came to such an accident was in January 1961, when a DC-3 carrying the Minneapolis Lakers crash landed in Carroll, Iowa.show more
