Picking a Fantasy Baseball League

The first step in becoming and fantasy baseball champ and having a season of fun is picking a good league. The web offers many leagues that have different point systems, different rules and different styles of play.

There are keeper leagues, which mean you play with the same people for a certain amount of years and you "keep" a certain amount of players every year.

There are salary cap leagues in which each player cost a certain price and you have a budget to draft and sign those players. Players values go up and down during the year like the stock market, depending on how they play.

Another time of play is "Roto" with the "5x5" being the most common. There are five hitting and five pitching categories. The five hitting categories are Batting Average (BA), Home Runs (HR), Runs Batted In (RBI), Stolen Bases (SB) and Runs (R) scored. The five pitching categories are Innings Pitched (IP), Wins (W), Saves (S), Earned Run Average (ERA), and Strikeouts (SO). Pitchers will not accumulate hitting statistics. Points are awarded in each of the 10 categories based on your standings compared to the other league teams. Most times points are awarded to the weekly winners in each category.

Head to head usually has two teams playing each other each day and the winner gets the points.

Points-based leagues have the teams compete in what ever categories have been set up for the entire year.

There are a few simple steps one can take to pick the right league for them. After choosing the style of Fantasy Baseball you like, you need make sure the league has a stat service. This shows you what your team does everyday day and keeps totals for the season. This is a must. After that, it is mostly opinion and price.
