St. Marys – The prestigious 5th Annual Baseball Fantasy Pool sponsored by the Canadian Baseball Hall of Fame is due TODAY, MONDAY, APRIL 4TH BY 11:59PM EST. The reigning champ, Paul Burdon played it safe and humble when asked about his bid to repeat.
“It has been lot of fun participating in the Ball Hall’s Fantasy Pool for the past three years,” Burdon said from his Toronto home.
“I look forward to becoming the first repeat winner while helping out a great organization.”
The 2011 pool is offering more than twelve hundred dollars worth of prizes, including a very unique prize to the champion – a limited edition special bat created by the Hall of Fame bearing the signatures of Canada’s three MVPs, Larry Walker, Justin Morneau, and Joey Votto.
And it’s so easy that ANYONE can play!
The format that is extremely user-friendly – a one-page form on which entrants simply choose one player from various groups of five who they feel will perform better than the rest.
To make it even easier, next to each player’s name on the entry form is their 2010 point total. From there, the fun begins. Did he top out last year? Did he under-achieve? Was he hurt? Was his production up or down due to who hit behind him? Is it his team that makes him good? Does being Canadian matter? Or should the names be selected randomly! Only the entrant can answer these questions, but checking out last year’s point total is a good starting point.
A new Trade option has been initiated this year. At the All-Star Break (July 11-13), one player can be traded for another player in the same original pool of five players as the player you are disposing.
Deadline for entry is Monday, April 4, 2011 at 11:59pm EST
