Rules

2016 Home Run Derby Rules:

$5 registration fee must be received before April 30th 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.
  • From the MLB Category list below, choose 1 player from group A, 1 player from Group B, 1 player from Group C, 1 player from Group D, and either 1 player from Group E or a write in player if not listed in Groups A, B, C, or D.
  • 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 is currently inactive 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.
