If you have never played a fantasy sports game, that's OK, it is simple to play. Players have a virtual dollar value based on their historical performance. You select enough players to fill your fantasy team and you must stay within your "fantasy" virtual budget. Then you score points based on the performance of your fantasy team in the tournament.
Step 1: Click on Create Your Team and login with your email address and password. It will take you to a Registration page.
Step 2: Fill out the registration page and it will take you to a Donation page. Enter a donation of $20 via credit card for each fantasy team that you would like to create (you can enter as many different fantasy teams as you like). All donations will go to the tournament charity.
Step 3: Build your roster from the players participating in the WIFFLE ball tournament. Available players include all players who plan to participate in the tournament.
You must complete your roster and select the maximum number of HITTERS and PITCHERS. Each HITTER and PITCHER has a dollar value based on their historical performance.
There is no charge to enter a team beyond the $20 donation per fantasy team. Your team is subject to a "fantasy" budget. As you select each of your players you would like on your fantasy team, your virtual budget will be reduced by the dollar value of the player you have chosen. You cannot spend more than the virtual budget and you must have a complete roster.
Step 4: Follow the progress of your fantasy team online during the tournament. Playoff games will not be included in the fantasy contest. The online leaderboard will be updated after every game. The winner will be the fantasy team that scores the most points.
Every hitter receives points as follows: Home Run ( 6 points), Run Scored ( 4 points), On-Base via Hit, Walk, Error, or Fielder's Choice (2 points), and Strikeout ( - 3 points).
Every pitcher receives points as follows: Inning Pitched (3 points), Strikeout ( 3 points), Baserunner Allowed on Base (- 1 point), Run Allowed (- 2 points).
