SB Nation has partnered with fantasy site FanDuel to bring a chance to play daily fantasy baseball for potential cash prizes to our readers. FanDuel was kind enough to give me some money to try out their site to compete against my fellow MLB site managers and I managed to
beat them all mercilessly win the top prize on the first night. Now you have the opportunity to test your selection skills for a chance to win.
The idea of the game is to construct a team of baseball players that are each assigned a specific dollar figure. You select a starting pitcher, catcher, first baseman, second baseman, third baseman, shortstop, and three outfielders to accrue points with their play on the field while staying under the budget of $35,000. Embedded below is a video on how it all works.
Check out our first contest here if you are interested in playing. Today's particular contest costs $2 to enter with the potential to win $2000 for first place and $18,000 in total prizes. Here are FanDuel's rules for you to check out. You must be 18 or older and live in the US or Canada. Please note that residents of AZ, IA, LA, MT, and WA cannot play for money. Don't hesitate to ask in the comments below if you have any questions.
I'll be creating an entry for tonight – my username is tanyabondurant – so feel free to post your username below if you are also going to give it a shot, that way others can be on the lookout for fellow PSA readers. I look forward to competing against you all!
