How do I enter?

Official Tournament Rules

  • Follow the link above to the CONTEST ENTRY FORM to enter the tournament. Entries must be received by October 4th, Noon EST.
  • The first 256 entries will go into the big bracket and be eligible for the winner's prize below, and we'll adapt and run additional smaller brackets as needed.
  • Pick one team from your managerial past and the season you want to bring them back from. You can change your mind and resubmit until the deadline.
  • You'll be entered in one huge bracket, with a best-of-seven series deciding each round.
  • Your roster will be any player that saw game action after the trade deadline that season - essentially it's how the team looked at the end of that season.
  • Your team will be made available to you by October 4th - at that time you'll be able to change lineups, pitching rotations, manager settings, and stadium settings as you see fit - we're using Classic sim model. Managers can't modify their teams after each series starts, so plan accordingly for seven-games.
  • We're going to run the games throughout the day, and we should be able to make it through the bracket from Thursday to Sunday.

What do I win?

Everyone that enters the contest: We will send you TWO random packs of baseball cards circa 1985-1994, no strings attached - when you register for the contest, you'll get a confirmation email that includes the link to tell us where to send the cards.

The winner of the tournament: We will send you a BOX of unopened 1987 Topps cards, surely the most beloved set of the time. You'll also be invited to chat on a podcast if you are into that kind of thing, we'll laud your victory far and wide, and you'll have fun.

The league with the highest participation: We will be making a $500 contribution to the Roberto Clemente Foundation in the name of the league from which the most teams are entered. The RCF does a lot of good work including support of free baseball clinics for kids around the country. Read more: Roberto Clemente Foundation
