Postby Southpaw19 » Sun Mar 07, 2021 2:43 am

Welcome to Year 15 of the Home Run Derby on NSBB!

Here is the link to submit your entries!
Good luck to everyone, and I'm so glad to be back and running this game for a (hopeful) full season of Baseball and Dingers!

I genuinely feel bad for the competition this year. The plan is to avenge my 12th or 14th place finish in 2019 with a vengeance, win it all this time

Don't everyone sign up at once! Slow down! :lol:

Anyway - FYI - Nick Markakis has retired from baseball.
I will remove him from the master list.

Usually they are right next to each other, since this forum is generally only the HR Derby. Regardless, I have added the link. :hello:

Sorry, I usually have it filtered by active topics so I didnt see the entry thread. Alls good!

Question: bench players don't count against the $1000, so its essentially $1000 for 10 players?

I'll get signed up, too. Mods, can you pin these threads up everywhere, or something? IT'S THE ONLY GOOD BASEBALL THING LEFT.

I am extending the deadline by 24 hours to March 31, 2021 at midnight CST. We have a short list of players this season so far, and I'd like to make sure I give everyone a final chance to get their team submitted.

My starting first baseman:

Belt, who has been rehabbing from October heel surgery and recovering from bouts with COVID-19 and mononucleosis, has only registered four Cactus League at-bats, but has taken at least 20 in simulated games in recent weeks.

Just wanted to let everyone know, this season is a smaller group than those in the past. Hopefully everyone will still have fun, and enjoy the baseball. I will be posting everyone's bench picks later today, and the first scoreboard will go up one week from today.

Well this sure didn't take long. Due to Tatis' injury, I will be burning my first transaction.

Drop Tatis $75 SS
Add Javy Baez $75 SS
