Overview

This King Of The Mound™ fantasy baseball contest is a fantasy sports skill game in which you select two (2) pro baseball pitchers before each weekend (Friday, Saturday, or Sunday games only) for twelve (12) consecutive weekends and accumulate points based on the performance of the pitchers selected by you. You cannot pick more than one pitcher from the same team during the Contest. The Contest begins with the games played on Friday, April 13, 2018 and ends with games played on Sunday, July 1, 2018.

You must make your player selection before your selection makes his first pitch in his weekend game. (Once a pitcher has thrown his first pitch, he will be locked for the weekend.) You can change your player selections for FREE during the weekend, but you can only switch to a pitcher who has not locked.

Your player selections must EACH accumulate at least 15 points during the weekend for which they are selected in order for you to advance to the next weekend and continue to be eligible to win the $500.00 cash grand prize in the Survivor Bracket.

However, even if you don't advance and, therefore, don't remain eligible for the $500.00 cash grand prize in the Survivor Bracket, you can still win a cash prize! When a player you select fails to get 15 points, you will be eliminated from the Survivor Bracket but you will still be able to compete for a prize in the Points Bracket. The Points Bracket has its own $500.00 cash grand prize and over $500 in additional cash prizes.

All team owners continuously compete in the Points Bracket through the final weekend of the Contest and will be ranked at the end of the Contest based on the total points accumulated through the end of the Contest. The top 20 finishers in the Points Bracket will all earn cash prizes.

So, there are two ways to win cash prizes! The Survivor Bracket has a $500.00 cash grand prize. The Points Bracket has its own $500.00 cash grand prize (and the top 20 finishers in the Points Bracket will all earn cash prizes.) WIN THE SURVIVOR BRACKET AND THE POINTS BRACKET AND YOU'LL WIN $1,000.00!

(Note: In the event of a tie in either Bracket, cash prizes will be added together and divided evenly among those who have tied. For example, if only three (3) entries remain in the Survivor Bracket after the 6th weekend and none of those entries advances to the next weekend, all three (3) entries would win the Survivor Bracket and the cash grand prize would be divided evenly among them. Winners in the Survivor Bracket are also eligible to win prizes in the Points Bracket.)

CALL TO THE BULLPEN! If the 2 players you selected fail to accumulate at least 15 points in weeks 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7 or 8 you can purchase a "Call to the bullpen" in order to remain in the Survivor Bracket for the next week. Each entry can only purchase two (2) "Call to the bullpen" during the Contest. Call to the bullpen are only available from Tuesday until 11:55 AM CT on Sunday during the week following the week in which your selected players failed to accumulate 15 points. No Call to the bullpens can be purchased after week 9 of the Contest.

SELECT TEAM

Overview

Before each weekend through the final weekend of the Contest, you must select two (2) pitchers, each from a different team. You will select a total of sixteen (16) different pitchers during the Contest, all of whom must be from different teams. You cannot select any pitcher twice and the pitchers who you select each weekend must be on teams from which you have not selected any pitchers during any previous weekends. For example, if you select Carlos Martinez, St. Louis, as one of your two (2) picks for the first weekend, you cannot select any pitcher from St. Louis for the remainder of the Contest.

Player Selections

Your player selections for the first weekend's games can be made immediately upon submitting your entry. You can change your player selections for FREE until your selection throws his first pitch. Each starting pitcher who plays on Friday, Saturday or Sunday will lock at the time of his first pitch for that weekend.

You may only select pitchers from the player list and the player list will include pitchers who are not scheduled to pitch any weekend games or who are injured or otherwise unable to pitch a weekend game. Team owners are cautioned to check pro baseball pitching matchups prior to the weekend to determine whether a particular pitcher is scheduled to pitch on Friday, Saturday or Sunday. (CDM Sports provides some information about possible pitching match-ups each weekend, but you should NOT rely solely on any pitching matchup information provided by CDM. Pro teams frequently change pitching rotations on short notice and some pitchers may be injured on game day or even during warm-ups. Rotation changes may not appear on the CDM Sports website.)

If a pitcher or pitchers selected by you do not start as scheduled for any reason (including games which are postponed due to inclement weather), or you fail to pick a pitcher who is actually pitching either Friday, Saturday, or Sunday, you are eliminated from the Survivor Bracket. However, you can continue to participate in the Points bracket. (You will earn zero points if a pitcher selected by you does not pitch for any reason.) Pitchers' teams will remain the same for the entire Contest. Pitchers traded to another pro team during the Contest cannot be selected after being traded.

Unlisted Players

An unlisted player cannot be selected unless the player is added to the player list. To request that an unlisted player be added to the player list in order to be selected, email us at [email protected] or call us at the toll free number 1.888.636.7559. CDM Sports reserves the right to determine, in its sole discretion, whether to add an unlisted player.

Locking of Player Selections
