2010 NFBC Online Double Play Signup List

Postby Greg Ambrosius » Mon Dec 28, 2009 4:29 am

Last year we had 600 teams competing in the debut NFBC Online Championship, with Lindy Hinkelman of Greencreek, Idaho winning the $40,000 grand prize. Lindy's incredible double-double by winning the $100,000 grand prize in the main event and the $40,000 grand prize in the Online Championship netted him another $75,000 cash bonus.



This year the online event remains, but it is called the NFBC Double Play. The online version is again priced at $350 per team with payouts to the top two teams in each league ($1300 for first, $650 for second) and an overall prize pool. This year we are shooting for 720 teams online and another 300 teams from the Live Double Play for a total of 1,020 teams. The grand prize now is $60,000 and there will be a $75,000 cash bonus again for anyone who can win the NFBC Classic overall title and the NFBC Online Double Play overall title. Good luck all.

2010 NFBC Online Double Play Signup List

Postby Lunatic » Mon Dec 28, 2009 5:33 am

OK, it is $350 to signup for the ONLINE version and $500 for the Double Play version. I thought I understood all of this but I guess I don't. The Double Play is the same as the $350 version; why the difference in price?
Your actions speak so loud, I can't hear a word you're saying...

Jim, the Double Play has two parts to it this year. Here it goes:



1. The Online Double Play is the same as the Online Championship last year, except with a bigger grand prize and more teams. They are 12-team leagues, pay top two in each league and then an overall prize pool and contest just like last year. The grand prize is $60,000 and a total of 1,020 teams are expected overall, 720 of them online.



So if you enter the Online portion of the Double Play you are eligible for the league prizes and the overall prize, just like last year. Cost is $350 per team, just like last year.



2. The Live Double Play costs $500 and your team is eligible two ways. Again, you are in a 12-team league just like the online portion competing for a $1300 league prize and a $650 second place prize. But $150 of that $500 is set aside for a second overall prize pool. Grand prize in the live is $25,000 and that is separate and only available for the 300 teams that draft live at our events. But the results of those teams also go into the online overall prize pool.



So if you draft Live in the Double Play, you get to watch standings in your league, Live overall standings and Online overall standings. You can win the $2,000 league prize, the $25,000 grand prize and the $60,000 grand prize.



Sound good? Honestly, the Live Double Play is as good a value as we offer this year. For $500 you can win $87,000 if all goes right. But it won't be easy. ;)

Jim, the Double Play has two parts to it this year. Here it goes:



1. The Online Double Play is the same as the Online Championship last year, except with a bigger grand prize and more teams. They are 12-team leagues, pay top two in each league and then an overall prize pool and contest just like last year. The grand prize is $60,000 and a total of 1,020 teams are expected overall, 720 of them online.

So if you draft Live in the Double Play, you get to watch standings in your league, Live overall standings and Online overall standings. You can win the $1,300 league prize, the $25,000 grand prize and the $60,000 grand prize.



Sound good? Honestly, the Live Double Play is as good a value as we offer this year. For $500 you can win $86,300 if all goes right. But it won't be easy. ;) [/b][/QUOTE]Greg,



The Live Double Play has league prizes of $2,000 and $750. Correct?

2010 NFBC Online Double Play Signup List

Postby Greg Ambrosius » Thu Dec 31, 2009 12:17 am

Okay, it makes sense to also post the Double Play Rules here. If you have any questions about this format, post here or just email me at [email]greg@fanball.com[/email].



Official Rules and Regulations of the

National Fantasy Baseball Championship (NFBC)

Double Play Championship



1. Overview:
The National Fantasy Baseball Championship (NFBC) Double Play Championship, formerly named the NFBC Online Championship, has been expanded for 2010 and now features a live component with an additional $25,000 grand prize and a $500 entry fee. So for just $150 more than the $350 on-line entry fee, owners can compete in the LIVE DOUBLE PLAY format with the opportunity to win $85,000!



The NFBC Double Play Championship will consist of 25 individual leagues, each comprised of 12 teams/managers drafting live from one of the NFBC’s six live event locations as well as 60 individual leagues, each comprised of 12 team/managers drafting on-line. The NFBC reserves the right to expand the number of live and/or on-line Double Play leagues. The NFBC Double Play Championship’s regular season will extend from Opening Day 2010 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). An owner drafting live in the NFBC Double Play Championship has an opportunity to win the $25,000 overall prize in the live portion of the Double Play and also will be eligible to win the $60,000 grand prize in the NFBC Double Play Championship. 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. All live and on-line Double Play 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 Double Play Championship) with the top finisher overall winning the grand prize in the Live/On-Line Double Play portion of the NFBC Double Play Championship. Furthermore all LIVE DOUBLE PLAY teams will have their cumulative stats positioned in an additional overall Rotisserie-style ranking with the top finisher overall winning the grand prize in the Live-Only Double Play portion of the NFBC Double Play Championship.



2. Event Locations and Fees for LIVE DRAFT Leagues: All LIVE DOUBLE PLAY leagues will hold their drafts at the Flamingo in Las Vegas, the Pujols 5 Westport Grill in St. Louis, and Bally’s in Atlantic City the weekend of March 19-21, 2010, and at the Bellagio in Las Vegas, the Cubby Bear Bar in Chicago, and Citi Field in New York the weekend of March 26-28, 2010. The cost per entry is $500. There is a $25 event fee to draft at the Bellagio, the Cubby Bear Bar, and the Citi Field. 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. Fees for ONLINE DRAFT Leagues: All ONLINE DOUBLE PLAY leagues will hold their drafts from early March through Saturday, April 3. The cost per entry is $350.



4. Prizes: Prizes are awarded for league, live-and-online overall, and live-only overall standings.



League Prizes for Live Leagues:

First Place = $2,000

Second Place = $750



League Prizes for On-Line Leagues:

First Place = $1,300

Second Place = $650



Overall Prizes for All Double Play Teams (Live & On-Line):

First Place = $60,000

Second Place = $12,500

Third Place = $5,000

Fourth Place = $3,500

Fifth Place = $2,000

Sixth Place = $1,000

Seventh Place = $750

Eighth Place = $500

Ninth Place = $500

Tenth Place = $350



Overall Prizes for Live Double Play Teams:

First Place = $25,000

Second Place = $5,000

Third Place = $2,500

Fourth Place = $1,000

Fifth Place = $500



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.



5. Draft: Drafts will take place online at http://www.fantasybaseballchampionship.com from early March through Saturday, April 3. In addition, the NFBC will host live drafts at each of the various draft locations with an additional prize pool for live participants. Participants can enter as many Online and Live Double Play leagues as they would like and be eligible for the league and overall prizes. For a complete list of available Online and Live Double Play Championship leagues, click on the SIGN UP NOW link, enter your log-in information or create a new log-in, under GAME select DOUBLE PLAY-LIVE or DOUBLE PLAY-ONLINE, and then choose the contest you want to sign up for under the SELECT VENUE pulldown. All of the available times for those Double Play Online Leagues will show up under the SELECT TIME link.



Each league will be comprised of 12 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 12 in odd-numbered rounds, team 12 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 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.



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.



Time Limit for Draft:



A. ONLINE Portion of the NFBC Double Play Championship: There will be a 90-second time limit for each owner to make his/her pick during each round of the NFBC Double Play draft. If a participant does not make a selection in the allotted time, the computer will select for that owner using Fanball’s overall ranking system. If there is a computer failure, an error made with a selection by an owner or any other type of technical malfunction, the draft moderator can stop the draft at any time and correct the error and then resume the draft. The NFBC reserves the right to allow the draft moderator to roll-back the draft if a technical error occurred, but if the desired player had already been selected before the draft was stopped, that player is no longer available to be drafted. All decisions will be made by the NFBC moderator during the draft and will be final.



B. LIVE DRAFT Portion of the NFBC Double Play Championship: There will be a 1-minute time limit for each owner to make his/her pick during each round of the NFBC Double Play 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 they will be allotted a full minute to make another selection after the next team's selection has been made.



6. Additional Rules for LIVE DRAFT Portion of the NFBC Double Play Championship: 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.



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.



7. Setting Kentucky Derby Style (KDS) Preferences: The NFBC will use Kentucky Derby Style (KDS) preferences for draft preferences in NFBC Double Play 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 12 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 12 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, 4, 5, 9, 10, 11, 12. 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.



8. Random League/Draft Spot Selections: The NFBC will randomly select the leagues and the draft orders of each NFBC Double Play league once entries have been submitted. For instance, if the NFBC receives 60 entries for the NFBC Live Double Play in Las Vegas for the weekend of March 19-21, we will put all 60 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 60 names have been selected. We will do this in each city for all of the NFBC Live Double Play leagues. We also will implement the Kentucky Derby Style (KDS) process 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 12 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 12 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 12. Owners can change their Draft Preferences right up until the announced deadline is set.



If an NFBC Live Double Play league in one of the cities does not fill exactly with 12 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.



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



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

• 2 Catchers

• 1 First Baseman

• 1 Second Baseman

• 1 Shortstop

• 1 Third Baseman

• 1 Middle Infielder (2B/SS)

• 1 Corner Infielder (1B/3B)

• 1 Utility Player (any offensive position)

• 5 Outfielders

• 9 Pitchers

There is a 700 innings pitched minimum requirement for all NFBC Double Play 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. Other eligibility guidelines can be found under Section 11. 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.



11. Position Eligibility: The NFBC Double Play Championship 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.



12. 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.



13. 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.



14. 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 Double Play Championship.



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. No team will be informed of any 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: For leagues that draft on or before March 28, 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). For leagues that draft on March 29, through April 3, the bidding process starts after Opening Day and ends at the completion of Week 26 (again 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 and runner-up 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: For leagues that draft on or before Sunday, March 28, the first free agent bidding deadline is Sunday, April 4, at 8 PM ET. For leagues that draft on Monday, March 29, through Saturday, April 3, the first free agent bidding deadline is Sunday, April 11, 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, 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.

In the case of a tied bid during the first FAAB period (April 4), the player will be awarded to the team that had the lowest draft spot on Draft Day (i.e., should Team 4, Team 7 and Team 11 each bid $1 on Sam Smith, Team 11 would get him).

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.



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



16. Scoring: The NFBC Double Play Championship will use a 5x5 Rotisserie scoring system. Cumulative totals will be used for the following categories:

• Batting Average

• Home Runs

• RBIs

• Runs

• Stolen Bases

• Wins

• Saves

• Earned Run Average

• Strikeouts

• 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 12 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 Double Play Championship. If the NFBC Double Play Championship finishes with 1,020 teams, first place in any category will be worth 1,020 points, second place 1,019, etc., all the way to one point for last place. This will occur in all 10 scoring categories.



17. Refunds: Once a participant submits valid payment, no money will be refunded to participants or co-managers unless the NFBC Double Play Championship is canceled. A team spot is considered filled when the entire entry fee is paid. Fanball reserves the right to cancel any entries not comprising a full 12-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 Double Play Championship.



At its sole discretion, Fanball reserves the right to terminate the NFBC Double Play Championship in its entirety if there are an insufficient number of teams by March 28, 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 or in other leagues. Fanball is not responsible for any loss or liability incurred by any participant or co-managers due to cancellation of the NFBC Double Play Championship, including but not limited to travel or hotel expenses, time taken off from employment, etc.



18. 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 and will pay the principal owner. The form contains the amount paid to you and you will receive a copy of the form for tax purposes. 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.

Hi Greg,



Just wanted to ask a question about signing up, I was looking over the message boards and couldn't find it. I was wondering when we sign up for events when our Credit cards would be charged?



Thanks

Just email me what you signed up for and I'll look it up. I probably just listed you wrong. [email]greg@fanball.com[/email] Richie. Thanks.

Any chance of an update on sign-ups for the Double Play? Ideally, a list of who's signed up for which draft locations/times (including online), but even just an update on how many people are signed up would be great.

:D Try checking out the very first post in this thread, on page 1 ! It provides a continually updated list of who has signed up so far for every available time slot for the online contest. Check other threads in the same manner for other contest signup lists !

Yeah, I'm a little slow. Didn't realize it was being continuously updated, because the date/timestamp doesn't update when the post is edited.

Hi Tom & Greg,



For the April 3rd Online at noon, I re-registered to update my credit card number; now I have two teams. Can you delete the first registration and use the second one with the right card number?



Thanks,

Just a heads up that we now have over 200 teams for the NFBC Online Double Play. We obviously have a lot more space, but it's great to get over the 200 mark and keep things moving. We've had almost 50 signups since our three-pack special was announced on Friday night, so that's a good little run we're having. Thanks all and let's keep it going.



The end of March and early April is going to be a lot of fun. Let the games begin.

Thursday march 25th, 7 pm east. You have my name as Joseph Medina. My last name is Meehan (it's correct in the other two drafts)... thought I'd let you know.



But I do live in Edina and the city of Medina is only about 20 miles away, FWIW.
