A friend of mine is running a Regular season Home Run Challenge. I've been in fantasy leagues with him for 5+ years and money is always promptly paid after the season. Read the rules of the Home Run Challenge below and if you're interested post here or PM me your e-mail address so I can give you payment information and give the person running the league your information. This is the 1st year he's running something like this and it sounds fun.
$25 Entry Fee. All entry fees are due before opening day.
You will pick 12 players who you think will hit the most home runs in the 2011 regular season. The 12 players you pick must follow the rules below based on the player’s home run total in 2010.
Player #1 can have any amount of home runs in 2010 Player #2 must have hit under 40 home runs in 2010 Player #3 must have hit under 40 home runs in 2010 Player #4 must have hit under 35 home runs in 2010 Player #5 must have hit under 35 home runs in 2010 Player #6 must have hit under 30 home runs in 2010 Player #7 must have hit under 30 home runs in 2010 Player #8 must have hit under 25 home runs in 2010 Player #9 must have hit under 25 home runs in 2010 Player #10 must have hit under 20 home runs in 2010 Player #11 must have hit under 20 home runs in 2010 Player #12 must have hit under 20 home runs in 2010
For example, for player #4, that player must have hit between 0 and 34 HR in 2010. A 35 HR hitter in 2010 is not allowed for player #4.
To send in your picks, e-mail them to Mark at email@example.com. When sending your picks, please order them from greatest to least HR hit in 2010 and include that number next to each player.
You are not allowed to change any of your picks at any time after opening day.
Each HR in the regular season is worth 1 point. Playoffs are not included. Prizes will be won for the highest home run total every month, the highest totals before and after the all-star break, and season long winners. All ties are split.
Here is a sample of prizes if there are 20 people in the pool. 100% of entry money is returned in the prize pool.
$10 for each monthly winner.
$30, $20, $10 for top 3 before the all-star break.
$30, $20, $10 for top 3 after the all-star break.
$150, $100, $50, $20 top 4 season long winners.
Since I do not know of any website that hosts a home run pool, I will use a spreadsheet to keep track of standings manually. You will have a link to view the standings. The standings will be updated nearly every day.
