Fantasy Baseball 2.0: Play Ball!

Posted on March 13, 2007

I received a note from Adam Kane the other day suggesting that we get a fantasy baseball league together for techies, entrepreneurs, web workers, etc. I.E. the TECH cocktail crowd. Of course I loved the idea and Adam went ahead and set up a league via Yahoo! sports called Play Ball 2.0 (beta). Gotta love the name!

If you want in on this league please shoot me a note or comment on this post and I’ll make sure to let Adam “The Commish” Kane know so he can send you an invite.

Quick FAQ

Is there money involved?

Possibly. If we do decide to put any money down be assured that it’ll be low stakes and that the winner will be required to take the winnings and put them toward a Kiva loan.

Is the draft live?

Yes, but you can rank your players so they will auto select if you can’t make the draft.

When is the draft?

Saturday, March 31 at 12:30pm central time. This can be changed to fit everyone’s needs as well so don’t let this time discourage you from joining the league.
