Secondly, you can rest assured that you'll enjoy playing in the NFBC.
There's nothing quite like a live fantasy baseball draft, with all of the owners right there in the same room, looking across the table at each other, eyeing the same draft board with similar draft strategies in mind. And it's even better when a $7,000 league prize is at stake and a record $200,000 grand prize is sure to be won by one of the fortunate participants.
Here is what makes live drafts so great in the National Fantasy Baseball Championship and a breakdown of how the events are organized:
You are as Powerful as An MLB Owner: You pick the players, you set the starting lineups,
you cut the players and you sign the hot new free agents. YOU are responsible for this
team winning or losing this year and nobody else.
Make New Friends: You are guaranteed to meet new die-hard MLB fans just like yourself
from across the country. Inevitably, some of these competitors will become your
friends for life because of shared interests involving baseball.
Have Fun at The Ultimate Draft Party: Imagine sitting in a large room with multiple
drafts going on at once. Everyone there will be talking about baseball, smack talking
and drinking beer or soda. It is an awesome sight to see a 7-10 or more draft boards in the
same room and hearing "Trea Turner" echoed 10 times at once when the first pick is made in
that room. It's 3+ hours of baseball fun you'll never find anywhere else.
Prove Your Greatness against The Ultimate Competition:
You'll get to personally know all of the guys in your league that you'll be banging heads with
for the $7,000 league prize and possibly the $200,000 grand prize. Last year, Bob Cramutola of
College Grove, Tennessee won the NFBC Main Event and the $175,000 grand prize. Bob won the
Main Event despite finishing second in his own league, which shows you how competitive every
league and overall race really is. We crowned 9 different national champions in 2022 and we look
forward to adding to that list in 2023. A lot of our players compete in multiple formats and
compete for multiple national titles and you can do that as well.
Get Your Sleeper: The thrill of making that pick before the one-minute time limit runs
out, with all of your league mates anxiously waiting to see who you are going to draft
is a thrill in itself. Then drafting the sleeper that everyone wants is an even bigger
thrill. You got him now. You OWN him.
Sharing The Experience With Friends or Family: Drafting together is a great way to get
close and stay close all season whether with a best friend, a son, a daughter or even
your spouse. Besides, it is a one-of-a-kind party atmosphere for baseball fans.
Get Early Bragging Rights: Seeing all of the draft boards once the day is done is a
reward in itself. Watching people peruse your draft and throw compliments (or trash)
about your 10th round pick is enjoyable and another good feeling. Our members stick
around after the drafts and analyze the other leagues' draft boards, while getting to
know members outside their immediate league. Meet more people, talk more baseball, have
Play for $200,000 Cash, GUARANTEED: Now imagine winning the $200,000 grand
