Coming off the unprecedented 2020 season, which featured a 60-game schedule, we wanted to address a couple of pressing questions ...

Position Eligibility

  • Batters and pitchers will not lose positional eligibility gained from the 2019 season, even if they didn’t meet the required minimums during the shortened 2020 season.

Updated scoring setting for points-based leagues

  • We've adjusted scoring for points-only and head-to-head points leagues to have better balance between fantasy value for pitchers and hitters. Since these are private leagues, the settings can always be adjusted by any commissioner.

Prize Leagues

  • Yahoo Public/Private Prize Leagues (formerly Pro/Cash Leagues) allow you to compete with other fantasy players for cash prizes. More information on when Prize Leagues will open will be coming soon.

More to come

  • Stay tuned! We will be rolling out more good stuff heading into the start of the season.

Now go sign up for Yahoo Fantasy Baseball and start prepping for the 2021 season. Good luck!
