2010 NFBC Classic Signup List

Postby Greg Ambrosius » Mon Dec 14, 2009 2:34 am

Congratulations to Lindy Hinkelman of Greencreek, Idaho, who won the $100,000 grand prize in the NFBC's main event in 2009. Lindy set a new NFBC record by winning a total of $241,300 as he is now our all-time Money Leader. Lindy not only won the NFBC main event last year but also the debut NFBC Online Championship. Wow, congrats Lindy.



There is no question that 2009 was our best year yet as we sold out the main event for the fifth straight year and gave away a record $1.1 million in prize money. We surpassed our goals across the board with the main event finishing with 390 teams and the NFBC Online Championship topping out at 600 teams.



But enough about last year. It's time to officially kick off our 2010 season as we've taken waaaaaaaaaay too long to get this season started. We were busy redesigning our web site and getting the Registration page organized, but now it's time to get things rolling.



We will open the signup page now (just click on the SIGN UP NOW link on any of the events) so that you can secure your spots in the NFBC as soon as possible. Remember, you can sign up for any NFBC league now and we won't hit your credit card until Feb. 15th. I'll add each new signup to this thread as they come in, so check here to see who is officially signed up and ready to compete in each of our events. Thanks all.



Here's the list to date with Lindy Hinkelman returning as our first signup to defend his NFBC main event title in Las Vegas on Saturday, March 27. Lindy is also returning for the NFBC Ultimate Auction League, the Live Double Play and the NFBC Auction Championship. Wow, thanks Champ and best of luck to you and everyone else in 2010:

2010 NFBC Classic Signup List

Postby Greg Ambrosius » Thu Dec 31, 2009 12:39 am

Here are the Rules for the NFBC's main event:



Official Rules and Regulations of the

National Fantasy Baseball Championship (NFBC) Classic



1. Overview:
The National Fantasy Baseball Championship Classic (NFBC Classic) will consist of 27 leagues (with the right to expand to a maximum of 35 leagues), each comprised of 15 teams/managers. The NFBC regular season will extend from Opening Day of the MLB regular season through the final game of the regular season (including one or more season-ending MLB tie-breaker games if needed). Teams will compete for accumulative stats in five offensive and five pitching categories, with each category weighted equally. Categories include: (for hitters) Batting Average, Home Runs, RBIs, Stolen Bases and Runs; (for pitchers) Wins, Saves, Earned Run Average, Strikeouts and WHIP Ratio (Walks plus Hits divided by Innings Pitched). The team at the end of the year with the most Rotisserie-ranking points based on cumulative statistics for the season in each league wins the league title. Teams also will have their cumulative stats positioned in an overall Rotisserie-style ranking (5x5 with each category weighted equally among all teams in the NFBC Classic) with the top finisher overall winning the grand prize.



2. Event Locations and Fees: All NFBC Classic leagues will hold their drafts simultaneously at the Flamingo in Las Vegas, the Pujols 5 Westport Grill in St. Louis, and Bally’s in Atlantic City on Saturday, March 20, 2010, and simultaneously at the Bellagio in Las Vegas, the Cubby Bear Bar in Chicago, and Citi Field in New York City on Saturday, March 27, 2010. The cost per entry is $1,300. There is a $100 event fee to draft at the Bellagio and Citi Field, and a $50 event fee to draft at the Cubby Bear Bar. There are no event fees to draft at the Flamingo, the Pujols 5 Westport Grill and Bally’s. There is a $50 co-manager fee.



3. Prizes: Prizes are awarded for league and overall standings.



Overall Prizes

First Place = $100,000 PLUS a crystal NFBC trophy

Second Place = $20,000

Third Place = $12,500

Fourth Place = $6,000

Fifth Place = $3,000

Sixth Place = $1,500

Seventh Place = $1,300

Eighth Place = $1,300

Ninth Place = $1,300

Tenth Place = $1,300



League Prizes

League Champion = $5,000

2nd place finisher = $2,500

3rd place finisher = $1,300



Cash prizes are awarded in U.S. dollars and are awarded to the principal owner of the team. In the event of a tie, cash prizes are divided evenly among those who have tied.



4. Draft: Each league will be comprised of 15 teams, and each draft will consist of 30 rounds, with each team selecting a player from the AL or NL in each round in a serpentine fashion (team 1 through team 15 in odd-numbered rounds, team 15 through team 1 in even-numbered rounds). Each team must start a weekly lineup of 23 players with required positions and maintain a reserve roster (which includes DL players) of seven players. There is no position requirement necessary for your reserve roster and you can change your starting lineup at the start of each week. You also do not need to fill your 23 required starting positions with your first 23 picks; your No. 2 catcher could be selected with your 30th overall pick if you choose. Players will be selected from all 30 Major League Baseball rosters and any player from any MLB organization is eligible to be drafted. Free agent pickups during the season will include players who are on major-league rosters at the time or players who were selected on Draft Day in your league and later dropped. Even players who were originally selected on Draft Day, cut and then sent to the minors are eligible during the regular season FAAB bidding period as once they are a part of that league, they continue to be part of the free agent listing. If the players were good enough to be selected on Draft Day, they are then good enough to remain in that league’s free agent pool.



If an NFBC participant does not show up at the draft in time, a surrogate owner will be installed and that owner will use the latest Cheat Sheets from Fanball’s online rankings to draft players, going in order of the Top 250 regardless of position. Should that owner not show up at all, the surrogate owner would be able to pick players at required positions when those needs are obvious.



If an NFBC participant inadvertently leaves the draft with an illegal lineup (for instance, was without a middle infielder or second catcher), then the NFBC will drop the last pick made by that team (or more picks if needed) and add the last player at that position on Fanball’s final Cheat Sheet on Draft Day to make that lineup legal. The NFBC participant could replace the player who was assigned after the error was discovered during the first FAAB period. All lineups must be legal before the season starts and the NFBC will correct all roster errors that may have been missed at the draft. All decisions by the NFBC commissioner involving final rosters are official.



Time Limit for Draft: There will be a 1-minute time limit for each owner to make his/her pick during each round of the NFBC Classic draft. If a participant does not make a selection in the allotted time, he is passed over until the next participant makes a player selection. The passed-over participant follows after the next person's pick and again has one minute to make his/her pick. Picks are official once the league facilitator announces the selection and all decisions by the league facilitator are final. In the event that a participant selects a player who no longer is available, the participant will get an additional 15 seconds by the draft facilitator to select a new player. If the participant then again selects someone who is off the board, his/her turn will be skipped and the participant will be allotted a full minute to make another selection after the next team's selection has been made.



Commissioner Decisions: All decisions made by the NFBC commissioner are final. Tough decisions sometimes must be made about eligibility rules, lineups, etc., and NFBC participants must accept the unbiased ruling of the NFBC commissioner.



Seating: Every team will have two draft spots available at the table and each team will be seated in their draft order. If you do not have a co-manager, we will remove the second chair and you will have more room to spread out.



Electronic Equipment: Participants can use electronic equipment during the draft as long as it fits in the allotted draft spot at the table. There will be NO Internet connections or electrical outlets, so participants bringing laptops will have to supply their own power. Cell phones are allowed at the draft table, but we encourage participants to use them sparingly and not in a way that interrupts the draft process. We request that participants limit their usage to outgoing calls during the draft, not incoming calls, and anyone planning to remain on the phone for the entire draft needs to inform the NFBC about that ahead of time.



Smoking/Drinking: Smoking will not be allowed in the Draft Room. There will be a cash bar available in the Draft Room, but we ask that each participant drink responsibly.



Breaks: There will be a 15-minute break after Round 10 and another 15-minute break after Round 20, and we will finish the draft after the final break.



5. Setting Kentucky Derby Style (KDS) Preferences: The NFBC will use Kentucky Derby Style (KDS) preferences for draft preferences in NFBC Classic leagues. All owners can set their Draft Preferences by going to their team on the game website, then going to MY SETTINGS (at the far right) and then pulling down to the link that says DRAFT PREFERENCES. There you will see a list of 1 through 15 in order.

Here's what KDS does: The KDS process allows owners to rank their order of preference for Draft Day, ranking their preferences 1 through 15 BEFORE the leagues are randomly selected. Some owners would rather draft in the middle, if they are selected early in their league; others like to stay near the top and others like to move down to the lower end. KDS allows that if you are fortunate enough. A sample KDS from an owner could look like this: 3, 2, 1, 7, 6, 8, 15, 14, 4, 5, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13. If an owner wants the third pick and he is selected No. 1 overall in his league, he would choose 3 as his top option and he would then be moved to third in that league on Draft Day if he were picked first out of the hat. NFBC officials will look at every owner's Draft Preferences after the leagues and orders are randomly selected and then announce the draft orders for each league.



6. Random League/Draft Spot Selections: The NFBC will randomly select the leagues and the draft orders of each league once all entries have been submitted by city. For instance, if the NFBC receives 150 entries for the NFBC Classic in Las Vegas on Saturday, March 27, we will put all 150 names into a bin and select in order: League 1, pick 1 is John Smith; League 1, pick 2 is John Doe, League 1, pick 3 is Jane Andrews, etc. until all 150 names have been selected. We will do this in each city for all of the NFBC Classic leagues. We also will implement the Kentucky Derby Style (KDS) process, as described in Section 5, to allow owners more draft preference. The KDS process allows owners to rank their order of preference for Draft Day, ranking their preferences 1 through 15 BEFORE the leagues are selected. If an owner wants the third pick and he is selected No. 1 overall in his league, he would choose that option and he would then be moved to third in that league on Draft Day. NFBC officials will look at every owner’s Draft Preferences after the leagues and orders are randomly selected and then announce the draft orders for each league. Once an owner has officially signed up for the contest, this feature is available at the game website under MY SETTINGS. Click on DRAFT PREFERENCES and you will see the Draft Order ranked 1 through 15 and the option to change those preferences next to them. If you decide not to rank your preferences, your preferred order will remain 1 through 15. Owners can change their Draft Preferences right up until the announced deadline is set.



If an NFBC Classic league in one of the cities does not fill exactly with 15 teams, the NFBC reserves the right to fill that league with owners from one or more other host cities to make it full. In that scenario, the NFBC reserves the right to place some of the final signups in any of the cities in that teleconference league. Early-bird signups will not be placed in a teleconference draft league.



7. Roster Requirements: Maximum of 30 players at all times.



8. Starting Lineup Requirements: Starting lineups will consist of:

1. 2 Catchers

2. 1 First Baseman

3. 1 Second Baseman

4. 1 Shortstop

5. 1 Third Baseman

6. 1 Middle Infielder (2B/SS)

7. 1 Corner Infielder (1B/3B)

8. 1 Utility Player (any offensive position)

9. 5 Outfielders

10. 9 Pitchers

There is a 700 innings pitched minimum requirement for all NFBC Classic leagues, but no minimum requirement for the number of starting pitchers or relief pitchers on each roster. Should any team not reach the required limit of 700 innings pitched by the end of the season, the rankings will be altered to show that team getting 1 point in both ERA and WHIP. No other teams will switch positions in the standings, but the team that didn’t reach the minimum IP will automatically earn 1 point in ERA and WHIP. All players must have played 20 games in 2009 or 10 games during the 2010 season to qualify at a certain position. Minor-leaguers who did not play 20 games at any position in 2009 but who still played at least one game in the majors last year, will qualify at the position they played the most at in the majors in 2009. Additional eligibility guidelines can be found in Section 9. If a player returns from retirement or rehab after missing the previous year, his position eligibility will be his previous year’s eligibility. If no Week One lineup is submitted, the NFBC will determine your starting lineup. After Week One, if no starting lineup is submitted, your starting lineup will be that of the previous week.



9. Position Eligibility: The NFBC Classic will use the following position eligibility rules in 2010:



a) Players who played at least 20 games at any position in 2009 will qualify at that position for the entire 2010 NFBC season. Players who play 10 games at a new position in 2010 will be eligible at that position after they have played there for the 10th time during the 2010 MLB regular season.



b) If a player did not appear in 20 games at any position, he qualifies at the one position he played most frequently the prior season in the majors. Designated Hitter is considered a position for these purposes (pinch-hitting is not). A player who only qualifies as a DH may only be assigned to the UT position. If a player's most games played at a position is less than 20 and tied among more than one position, the NFBC commissioner will assign eligibility at one position only.



c) Those players who only pinch-hit in the majors in 2009 will be position eligible according to their minor-league games played status in 2009. They would qualify at the position they played the most games in the minors.



d) Players who played all of 2009 in the minor leagues will be awarded position eligibility for the 2010 NFBC season based on the most games played at all levels in the minors. Fanball will determine that one eligible position before Draft Day and that will determine that player’s status for 2010 once he is called up to the majors. Those players who only pinch-hit or DH in the minors only will be UT-eligible.



e) The NFBC commissioner will rule on player eligibility prior to the draft as he deems necessary. Those eligibility lists are final.



10. League Management Web Address: You can access your team and league via the Internet by going to http://www.fantasybaseballchampionship.com. You will need a username and a password to access the game site. Contact [email]nfbc@fanball.com[/email] if you are signed up for the contest and do not have a username and password.



11. Lineup Submission: The weekly deadline for setting your NFBC starting lineup is 6:55 PM ET on Monday. Players who are on teams participating in games with a scheduled start time prior to the Monday deadline at 6:55 PM ET, will be locked 5 minutes before the scheduled start time for their game. No changes involving players on these teams with early games will be allowed after this deadline for their game regardless of whether or not their game actually starts as scheduled.



Team owners also are allowed to remove a pitcher (or pitchers) who is officially on the DL from their starting lineup and replace him with a pitcher from their reserve roster on Fridays by 5 minutes before the scheduled start time of the first game of the day. Pitchers must officially be on Major League Baseball's DL list according to Fanball and the NFBC by 12:01 AM ET on Friday for this move (or moves) to take effect for the weekend games.



NEW for 2010! NFBC team owners are allowed to switch out any hitter (or hitters) from their starting lineup and replace him with a hitter from their reserve roster on Fridays by 5 minutes before the scheduled start time of the first game of the day as long as position eligibility for their team remains legal.



First Lineup Deadlines for Week 0 and Week 1: You may set your starting lineup for Week 0 and the game played on Sunday, April 4, until 6:55 PM ET (or 5 minutes before the scheduled start time, if earlier) on Sunday, April 4. You then may set your starting lineup for Week 1 and games beginning Monday, April 5, until 6:55 PM ET on Monday, April 5 (and, for players in early Monday games, until 5 minutes before the scheduled start time of their game).



All lineups must be submitted on the league website.



12. Free Agents: Any player who is not on a team roster within your league and is on a major league roster or once was on an NFBC team in your league is considered a free agent for that league. Even players on the MLB disabled list are eligible to be picked up during the FAAB bidding process. The player pool is deemed closed of new free agents each Sunday at 7 AM ET before the FAAB bidding deadline. Participants should note that MLB unsigned veteran free agents at the time of Draft Day are eligible to be picked up or bid on in the NFBC Classic.



Free Agent Bidding Process: The free agent system will be a "blind bidding" process for each individual league. Each team will start with 1,000 free agent "dollars" for the season, and will be permitted to bid for free agents on a weekly basis with a minimum bid of $1 per player. Teams will not be able to see other teams’ free agent bids. The team with the highest bid on any given player will be awarded that player. The amount of the winning bid will be deducted from the winning team's free agent dollars. For each winning bid, the winning team must drop a player to make roster room for the free agent acquisition. If a team's free agent dollars go to zero, that team will no longer be allowed to bid for the rest of the season. No bid will be accepted that is larger than a team's available free agent dollars. All bids must be in increments of dollars (no cents). Only winning bids and the runner-up bids on each player will be shown after the FAAB bidding period for each NFBC league.



Bidding Time Frame: The bidding process starts just prior to Opening Day and ends at the completion of Week 26 (there is no new FAAB period if there are one or more regular-season MLB tie-breaker games). Bids will be accepted on the league website from Monday at 3 PM ET until Sunday at 8 PM ET in each of these weeks. Rosters will be updated shortly after 8 PM ET on Sunday with the results of all successful bids. Starting lineups for the upcoming week must be submitted by 6:55 PM ET on Monday. Players who are on teams participating in games with a scheduled start time prior to the Monday deadline at 6:55 PM ET, will be locked 5 minutes before the scheduled start time for their game.



First and Last Free Agent Bidding Deadlines: The first free agent bidding deadline is Sunday, April 4, at 8 PM ET. The last free agent bidding deadline is Sunday, September 26, at 8 PM ET.



Conditional Bids: Conditional bids also can be offered. In the event you may lose out on a player, you can place one or more conditional bids for other players during the bidding time frame. The first conditional bid will become relevant only if you lose out on your primary bid. Subsequent conditional bids will become relevant only if the previous conditional bid fails. Bids do not require conditional bids. Bids may have several sequential conditional bids. Participants should note that the computer takes the HIGHEST BIDS and processes each bid in that order if you have multiple FAAB acquisition bids. In addition, putting a larger bid on a conditional bid than the primary bid is not allowed.



Example:

Acquire Jason Hammel, $19, cut Freddy Garcia

Acquire Jon Garland, $16, cut Freddy Garcia

Acquire Jeremy Guthrie, $2, cut Freddy Garcia



Number of Bids Limit: There is no limit to the number of bids that may be submitted each week in which bids are permitted.



Tied Bids: If there is a tie bid during the season, the team that receives the player will be determined in order by:

1. Worst league standing at the time FAAB was run (Sunday night using Saturday’s standings).

2. Lowest standing the previous week (standings through previous Sunday’s games).

3. Lowest standing two weeks previous (through the corresponding Sunday’s games).

4. Lowest standing three weeks previous (through the corresponding Sunday’s games).

5. Lowest draft position from Draft Day.

Any tied bids during the first FAAB period will be given to the team with the lowest draft order from Draft Day, whether there were a few games played before then or not.

Commissioner Review of Player Drops: All player drops for free agents are subject to review by the NFBC commissioner and can be revoked if the dropped player is deemed too valuable to be offered to that league's free agent pool, thus damaging the credibility of the overall contest. In the case of a "star" player being dropped in a league for a valid reason, the NFBC commissioner reserves the right to allow the cut but keep the player out of that league's free agent pool for any length of time, possibly the entire season. All decisions by the NFBC commissioner will be final.



13. Trades Between Managers: To minimize the possibility of collusion, there will be no trading allowed.



14. Scoring: The NFBC Classic will use a 5x5 Rotisserie scoring system. Cumulative totals will be used for the following categories:

1. Batting Average

2. Home Runs

3. RBIs

4. Runs

5. Stolen Bases

6. Wins

7. Saves

8. Earned Run Average

9. Strikeouts

10. WHIP Ratio (walks plus hits divided by innings pitched)

Teams are ranked by comparing their team totals to the other teams in their league. The team with the best total in each category receives 15 points and the team with the worst total receives 1 point. Overall points are calculated by ranking your team's statistics totals versus all other teams in the NFBC Classic.



15. Refunds: Once a participant submits valid payment, no money will be refunded to participants or co-managers unless the National Fantasy Baseball Championship Classic is canceled. A team spot is considered filled when the entire $1,300 entry fee is paid. Fanball reserves the right to cancel any entries not comprising a full 15-team league. When a participant agrees to finish the registration form and submit payment, that participant has demonstrated his/her acceptance of the official rules and regulations for the NFBC Classic.



At its sole discretion, Fanball reserves the right to terminate the National Fantasy Baseball Championship Classic in its entirety if there are an insufficient number of teams by March 14, 2010. In this unlikely event, Fanball will refund all entry fees within 48 hours of cancellation notice and/or provide a new application form with the newly stated prize figures. In this situation, all pre-registered applicants have the right to a full refund or to agree to play for the newly announced prize structure. Fanball is not responsible for any loss or liability incurred by any participant or co-managers due to cancellation of the National Fantasy Baseball Championship Classic, including but not limited to travel or hotel expenses, time taken off from employment, etc.



16. Taxes: If the principal team owner's prize winnings are $600.00 or greater, the National Fantasy Baseball Championship must file a Form 1099 with the IRS at the end of this calendar year. We will request your social security number and signature on this form. The form contains the amount paid to you and you will receive a copy of the form for tax purposes. Fanball pays ONLY the principal team owner of each NFBC team that was submitted on the entry form and you are responsible for paying any taxes that result from your cash prize; please consult your income tax advisor for filing advice. A 30% U.S. income tax withholding will be applied to all non-U.S. prize winners. In the event that the awarding of any prizes to winners of the Contest is challenged by any legal authority, Fanball reserves the right in its sole discretion to determine whether or not to award such prizes. After 12 months, any unclaimed prize will be forfeited.

We don't have an online auction event. We do have the Auction Championship and that is it's own separate event.
