Help out a limey newbie - Best h2h provider?

Postby javvy60 » Sat Feb 04, 2006 8:49 am

I want to set up a h2h league, but I'm relatively new to fantasy baseball over here in England, and I don't know which league provider to go with.

Any advice would be gratefully received.

Thanks.

Hi javvy!

As a fellow-Brit, may I say welcome to the cafe!

Probably the best place for newbies is to use Yahoo - as it's free! You can find it here, with comprehensive rules:

If you are interested in joining an existing H2H set-up, come and play the H2H World Series. I'm the commissioner of the UK league, and am always looking for new players. There's loads more info about it in this thread:

Any more questions, just ask ;-D

It really depends on exactly what you want out of your league. I thnk the best site out there is sportsline.com. You will have to pay there though. If your planning on running your own league you can use the Baseball commisioner on sportsline. It is very flexible and you can customize your league to your liking.

Thanks for the help, and thanks for the offer Chris, but I've got 20 people to shoehorn into our first attempt at h2h!!

I like the look of sportsline, so I think I might spend a few quid when they open up for the new season.

All the best :-)

Sports line is a waste of money. It is complicated and hard to use. Save the money and go with Yahoo.

There will come a day when Barry Bonds leaves baseball, and everything about the game will be the better for it.
