Try Our Free 1-Day Fantasy Baseball FreeRoll Hosted by DraftStreet.com
- Updated: May 10, 2011
Baseball season has arrived and it’s time for fantasy baseball. But not the average, full-season, six-month type that seems to never end. I’m talking about a one-night showdown on Friday, May 13th. Yes, Friday the 13th!
We have teamed up with DraftStreet.com to offer an exclusive free contest to BaseballReflections.com readers. The freeroll will have $100 in cash prizes, the top 4 get paid, and it is totally free to sign up. How can you not get in on this?
Pit yourself against me (Peter Schiller, owner, writer & lead editor of Baseball Reflections) and possibly other Baseball Reflections writers in this one day freeroll event! Players can be selected by more than one player in the freeroll so don’t worry about not being able to get the best players if you sign up later than most. I’m sure the kind people of DraftStreet will let you enter into the freeroll up until 7pm on Friday (the 2:20pm game between the Giants and Cubs in Chicago will NOT count in this freeroll)!
Here’s how you play:
Fill your roster (C, 1B, 2B, 3B, SS, 3 OF, 2 U, 2 SP, RP, P) while staying within the budget of $100k. Player salaries are set by DraftStreet based on fantasy production. So, if you want to put Roy Halladay on the mound it might cost you $16k, which means you’ll have to find some bargains to fill out the rest of your squad.
Here is how the scoring is calculated:
|1B||1 pt||IBB||-.25 pts|
|2B||2 pts||HA||-.25 pts|
|3B||3 pts||HB||-.25 pts|
|BB||.8 pts||ER||-.75 pts|
|HR||4 pts||INN||.75 pts|
|HP||.8 pts||K||.75 pts|
|R||1.5 pts||L||-.75 pts|
|RBI||1.5 pts||S||3 pts|
|SB||2 pts||W||1.5 pts|
|KO||-1 pt||CG||1 pt|
You can sign up now for free! Just build a team (you can adjust your roster up until the games start), then check out the scoreboard when the games start and watch your team win you cash.
