MODIFY TEAM

Overview

To modify your team via the Internet, click the appropriate navigational link on the Contest website, login using your email address and password (if you haven't already done so), modify your team roster as needed, submit the modifications and record the confirmation number you receive for them.

You may change any or all of the players on your team roster each week of the contest.

Deadlines and Stat Periods

During the Contest, modifications must be made before 7:00 PM CT each Monday in order to be effective for the upcoming stat week (consisting of games played between Monday through Sunday).

In the event that a game starts before 7:00 PM CT on Monday, the players involved in the early games will lock 5 minutes before the scheduled start of their game on Monday.

At the deadline, your team is locked for the upcoming week. Any modifications made after the deadline do not take effect until the following week. Your team carries over from week-to-week if you do not make any modifications. The first deadline for modifying your team during the Contest is Monday, April 2, 2018. Check schedule of games for staggering game times on Monday, April 2nd.

Before the Contest entry deadline (until 11:40 AM CT, Thursday, March 29, 2018), all modifications to your team are free and unlimited.

Special Player Change Deadline for the All-Star Break

Due to the All-Star Break, player changes for the week of July 16th may be made until 6:00 PM CT Thursday, July 19, 2018.

HITTING POINTS
Single 1 pt.
Double 2 pts.
Triple 3 pts.
Home Run 4 pts.
Run Batted In 1 pt.
Run Scored 1 pt.

1 Inning 1 pt.
Strike Out 1 pt.

* Fractional points are awarded for each partial inning pitched (1 out = 0.33 points)

Scoring System

Points are accumulated every day of the Contest for all 14 players on your team. The stat week runs from Monday through Sunday, except for the first week of the Contest which begins Thursday, March 29, 2018 through Sunday, April 1, 2018.

All points accumulated by the players on your team, regardless of what position they actually play during the Contest, contribute to your team's point total.

Pitchers' batting statistics do not count. Hitters' pitching statistics do not count.

Points by a player before being added to your team, and points by a player after being dropped from your team, do not contribute to your team's point total.

Pre-season, All-Star game, and post-season statistics do not contribute to your team's statistics totals.

Statistics will be used from playoff games, if needed, to decide post-season teams, division winners, or seeding in the post-season.
