Managers wanted: Edublogger fantasy baseball

An idea so brilliant that I’m ashamed I didn’t think of it earlier: edublogger fantasy baseball! 12 edubloggers. An online fantasy baseball league. Winner gets online bragging rights and an actual, physical trophy courtesy of CASTLE. Hey, if we’re a virtual community, let’s do it right!


Here are the settings for the league. Competition will start next Monday. Since it’s after the start of the season, we’ll do an autopick draft which will occur Sunday morning (you still can rank your picks ahead of time). Maybe next year we can do a live draft instead.

Interested? The first 11 edubloggers that contact me with the word BASEBALL in the title of their e-mail are in!

Rules of participation

  • Must be willing to engage in friendly banter with other participants
  • Don’t join if you’re not going to be a good sport
  • Participants, team rosters, league standings, etc. are fodder for public disclosure on blogs, Twitter, and so on
  • All decisions of the commissioner (me) are final
  • Play ball!
