Creating a Baseball Fantasy League

The last decade has seen many changes, one of them being the amazing involvement of individuals in baseball fantasy leagues as well as other fantasy sports. There are no specific rules for baseball fantasy involvement; however an unspoken rule for you to be successful at baseball fantasy games is for you to have a real appreciation and interest in real baseball. These simple steps will help you start a baseball fantasy league that you will really enjoy playing with the whole season.
Baseball Fantasy Step #1 Calling all Teams The first baseball fantasy step to creating a league is getting your teams together. This basically means you need to get 8-12 friends together to create teams. Remember, if you have less than 8 teams or more than 12 your season will not be as enjoyable. The suggested 8-12 baseball fantasy teams mean you will be able to have a competitive season.
Baseball Fantasy Step #2 Elections Every baseball fantasy league needs a commissioner, or someone who is in charge. This person will be responsible for compiling each team's statistics on a weekly basis and distributing them to all of the players. Be sure you elect a commissioner who is responsible and takes the position seriously.
Baseball Fantasy Step #3 One League or Two This can be a tough decision, but it must be made. This is


the decision of whether or not to use only one league or both the American and National Leagues.
Baseball Fantasy Step #4 The Draft Acquiring players can be done in many different ways, and the best way for your baseball fantasy league to do this is what works best for all teams. Sometimes a draft works, other times an auction, decide what works best and then stick with it.
Baseball Fantasy Step #5 Rules Each league has rules so far as statistics and how points are accumulated. Whatever rules apply to your league make sure all teams are aware and follow the rules.
Baseball Fantasy Step #6 Have Fun Remember to have fun and enjoy your baseball fantasy league. This has been going on for years and millions of Americans really enjoy this activity. Some play for money, some play for trophies, and others simply play to win. Whatever you choose to play for, make sure all teams are in favor.
