After the phenomenal success of the 2023 inaugural season, GBFBS is back. It is bigger, and it is better.
Concept: These leagues are specifically for those living in the UK or Brits living abroad. Our aim is to help grow fantasy baseball in the UK.
Format: Multiple interlinked divisions. Every division winner is automatically promoted to the CHAMPIONS LEAGUE for 2025.
Trophies: As well as awarding a trophy to the winner of the CHAMPIONS LEAGUE, we also send prizes to the division winners and to the highest point scorer across all of the divisions. They were pretty good last year.
Platform: Fantrax – Points (weekly head-to-head)
Teams: 12 teams per division. 24 players per team
Transactions: Re-draft league (no keepers). No trading. Free agent acquisition by FAAB, which runs at midnight every Friday. Weekly lineups lock at first pitch on Saturday.
Free agent acquisitions: Maximum of two free agent pick-ups each week. There is skill involved in managing injuries/upgrades.
Draft: Various draft formats/dates available – see entry form for details.
Cost: Once again, these leagues are free courtesy of Bat Flips & Nerds. We expect to reach the entry limit and operate a waiting list. Please do not apply unless you are prepared to be active and engaged; you don’t have to be good. Complete novices welcome
