Rules

2019 Home Run Derby Rules:

$5 registration fee must be received before May 1st or your team will be forfeited.

Official Home Run Derby Contest Rules:

  • 1 entry per person.
  • The objective is to have your team of 5 players hit the highest total number of home runs throughout the entire baseball season.

  • At 1 time in the season, you may swap out one of your inactive players (injured, benched, demoted, etc) and exchange them for any player that was in their group. This 1 time can be anytime as long as the player does not have a single Plate Appearance in the MLB for a minimum of 20 consecutive days. The home runs the exchanged player hits after the trade will count towards your team plus the home runs hit by your inactive player before the trade. You can only trade 1 player the entire season.
