The trouble with "any league" questions isn't fundamentally that they're too broad - it's that the answers quite possibly aren't interesting to anyone. If the rules of my backyard baseball league with my friends allow us to play barefoot, nobody cares other than me and my friends.

I had hoped that closing autograph identification questions as they arrived on the site would stop the flow of questions. However, that obviously hasn't happened so I agree this would be a good idea.
