Introduction

The origin of Baseball dates back to the 18th century, and to date, it remains one of the most followed sport, mostly played in the United States of America, Canada, and Japan. The main objective in Baseball is for a team to score more runs than the opponent. The sport is played between two teams consisting of 9 players each, and the game lasts for 9 innings. The team with the most points after the completion of 9 innings is declared the winner.

While Baseball has historically been popular in the west, the game has slowly gained traction in India over the last few years. A big reason behind this has been the introduction of fantasy baseball. While fantasy cricket has captured the nation's heartbeat, fantasy baseball too has shown remarkable growth in the country.

And when it comes to fantasy sports, MPL is your one-stop destination. Trusted by over 9 crore Indians, MPL is regarded as the country's No.1 fantasy sports platform and for good measure.

What is a Fantasy Baseball Game?

Fantasy Baseball runs on the same concept as some of the other fantasy sports where the participant serves as the owner and manager of his/her virtual baseball team. The objective is to build a fantasy team from an upcoming real-life baseball match and rack up points by selecting players who you think might do well on the given day. You will be pitted against fellow competitors, and whichever fantasy team has the most points at the end of the game will be declared the winner.

There are few ground rules you need to be familiar with while creating your fantasy baseball team. To play fantasy baseball, head over to the MPL fantasy sports platform, where you will find the schedule of all the upcoming Baseball league matches going on around the world.

Once you have selected the match for which you want to create your fantasy team, players from both sides will be shown on your screen. Your fantasy team should have 9 players with a maximum of 6 players from one team. Every player comes with pre-decided points, which vary from match to match. You have to create a fantasy team within 100 credit points, then select a captain & vice captain and register.

Your team accumulates points based on how the players you have selected are faring in the actual match. The aim is to select a well-balanced side so that your team achieves a position on the leaderboard.

Fantasy baseball requires a keen knowledge of the game alongside knowing the recent statistics of the players you are selecting, historical relevance, size of the ballpark, and the overhead conditions. It is a game of pure skill, and to win, the combination of your fantasy baseball team needs to be on point each time.

Rules & Gameplay of Baseball

Baseball is played between two teams with 9 players, each on a diamond-shaped field known as a Ballpark. Here are some essential rules and gameplay of the sport that every fantasy baseball player should know.

A Baseball team comprises pitchers, catchers, outfielders, and infielders.

Baseball has two sides of 9 players each, and the game lasts for 9 innings. The team that scores the most runs by the end of the ninth inning wins the match. However, in the case of a tie, the match is extended into an extra inning till a winner is found.

The game starts with the pitcher hurling the ball towards the batter, overhand. The batter accumulates runs by hitting the ball into the baseball field and running around the four bases. Once the batter hits the ball, he must try and reach the first base at the very least. They can run to as many bases before being tagged out. A home run is when the batter smashes the ball outside of the playing area.

A batter is dismissed via:

(a) Strike Out, which is when the batter fails to make any connection with the ball three times, provided the ball is within the strike zone.

(b) Force Out, when the batter cannot make it to the base timely.

(c) Fly Out, when the ball is caught directly from a batter's shot.

(d) Tag Out, when one of the defensive players touches the runner with the ball or the glove with the ball in it.

If four pitches miss the strike zone and the batter leaves it, he can directly walk to first base.

A catcher is placed directly behind the batter to catch the ball if not hit.

A batting order, once picked, cannot be changed under any circumstance. Substitutes are allowed, but they can bat only in the spot of the player they are replacing.

There are a number of fantasy baseball apps in Indian, and each has its own rules when it comes to creating an online side. On MPL, each player is worth a certain number of credits. Pick carefully as you are only assigned 100 credits within which your fantasy squad should be ready.

You need to pick a total of 9 players with a maximum of 6 players from one side. Now comes the critical point. Your fantasy baseball team should compulsorily have:

Outfielders (Minimum 2 - Maximum 5)

Infielders (Minimum 2 - Maximum 5)

Pitcher (1)

Catcher (1)

Once you are confident with the players chosen, nominate a captain and a vice captain. Keep in mind that your fantasy baseball team captain will provide you twice the points, while the vice captain gets you 1.5 times the points. With this, your fantasy team is successfully created.

What is the Fantasy Baseball Point System?

The players you have picked in your fantasy baseball team score points based on their performance in the live match. MPL has introduced a new fantasy points system for Baseball, which is robust, easy to comprehend, and grasp. It is extremely important that you understand the fantasy points system before creating your teams, as they are crucial to your winning.

In fantasy baseball, the batter scores 4 points when he reaches first base, 6 points when he reaches second base, 10 points when he reaches third base, and 12 points for hitting a home run. There are various other points with respect to a batter as well. A pitcher gets 2 points for every strike out and 1 point per out.

There are no starting points awarded to the players, but you should always check the starting lineup before finalizing your fantasy side. Fantasy points are applicable for all events during the extra innings. The winners will be announced only for matches where a result is possible. Generally, a match has a result when both sides have completed a minimum of 5 innings.
