    Spring Training is going to start soon which means the MLB season is right around the corner. This thread is to gauge interest and set up a draft date for the league which starts on April 2nd. That's the first week of the month so drafting the week before would probably be my preference. We'll be playing on ESPN which requires an account and an email. Both are free and easy to make.
    Newbies will be welcome to and encouraged to join! This is really fun and its a blast rooting for your players. Just going to copy this next part from Finch's post 2 years ago.​

    1. STAY ACTIVE, EVEN IF YOUR TEAM SUCKS. I can't stress this enough. Again, if you've played before, then you how annoying it is if people forget about the league and stop caring. If you go inactive, you will not get to play next year.​
    2. There are no rewards, as of now at least.​
    3. Taken directly from Waterbomb on smogon because he says it best: No gimmicks. Being a beginner is acceptable. Asking for advice occasionally and in private is acceptable. Being completely dependent on everyone else without doing your own research is not. Most major Fantasy hosting websites have written tutorials on how to play, and I suggest you check them out if you've never done this before.​

    The league starts in early April and runs until late October, so be prepared to be active for those 7 months.​
    A couple extra notes:​
    1. We will probably be doing a Weekly league as opposed to daily. This is less commitment from people and will hopefully inspire more activity​
    2. Roto is probably the most popular form of fantasy baseball but I'm leaning towards doing head to head because the 1v1 element is more fun in my opinion.​
    3. Scoring will probably be a slightly modified version of standard 5x5 scoring. I talked with my good friend @Duster and we'll probably change saves to Holds + Saves and add K/BB ratio for pitchers to make it so ties can't happen (usually)​
    4. If you need any help preparing for the draft or want to talk about strategies or anything else feel free to ask. I probably talk about sports more than anything else on here anyway. We also have a channel on the server called #Sports feel free to join!!​
    5. Don't be afraid if some of the terminology is new or confusing I think this is new for most people playing. You can still learn on the fly and people here will help you!​
    6. When you post your signup post please post "in" as well as a general preference for draft date (I.E. weekends at night, etc) and time zone.​
