First, this game was created by a few good friends who enjoy baseball and making things more interesting with a little humble competition.
This is NOT the traditional fantasy game where you choose players for any and every team. You play by choosing the TEAM which you are a fan. You choose among those players to achieve an in-game stat like getting a Hit or scoring a Run. The more picks you make correctly, the higher your point total. Simple right!! Stats are updated every few minutes so every inning gives you a chance to top the leaderboard.
FYI, end of the 5th is "our" honorary 5th inning MVP. When we have our watch parties, bottom of the board at the end of the 5th buys a round. That's just what we do. Heck, create your own leaderboard and have fun doing your own variation!
You have up until the official start time to set your lineups. Simply choose a player you think will achieve an in-game stat (Hit, Run, Home Run, etc.) and choose a player whom you want to be the MVP of the game. Sounds simple, right? Our twist, batters 7-9 earn double points.
Once the official game begins, we update the action every few minutes. You'll definitely want to keep tabs on the Leaderboards to see how well your picks compare to your friends and other fans.
Seriously, this game was put together by a few friends who love baseball. The more people who play, the better chance that this game gets noticed. The more it gets noticed, the more fun this game can end up being! If you do enjoy it, please share it with anybody and everybody!
We'd love to hear from you. We'll get some better contact info up here soon.
