Bleacher Nation’s fantasy baseball partner DraftStreet isn’t fooling around with this first week of baseball. They’re running a one-day fantasy baseball contest TODAY, with a cash prize pool of $100,000. First place gets a whopping $20,000, and the next 749 people get paid.
The league costs only $22 to play, and you can sign up here.
As a bonus? If you’re a first-timer, DraftStreet will match you with bonus money for whatever you deposit (up to $200). I kind of wish I was a first-timer …
(For those who haven’t done these contests before, they’re simple and fun: you have $100,000 to spend on your roster, selecting players from today’s MLB games. Want Mike Trout? No problem, but he’s gonna take up a big chunk of that $100,000 salary cap. There’s absolutely nothing to lose and it takes 5 minutes to build a team. You can adjust your roster up until the contest starts today at 12pm CT, at which time your rosters will lock and the Live Scoreboard will be available.)
So, sign up here for the $100,000 contest. The clock is ticking.
*Note: residents of some States are not eligible to play, so if you’re blocked out for that reason, my most humble apologies.
