2023 NFBC Live Events Signup List -- Updated Here

Post by Greg Ambrosius » Wed Nov 09, 2022 3:23 pm

Welcome to our 20th anniversary season in the NFBC!!! Let's say that again: OUR 20TH SEASON OF THE NFBC!!!

It's hard to believe we have made it this far. I first announced the idea of the National Fantasy Baseball Championship at the Arizona Fall League Symposium in late October of 2003 and at that point I had no idea if this was a good idea or a disastrous one. After I announced this new contest, Gene McCaffery and John Menna came up to me and said "count us in for one team. Love the idea."

And with that, I thought we were off and running.

Little did I know that we'd finish with only 195 of 300 spots filled in Year 1 of the NFBC and my boss almost made the NFBC one-and-done. He gave me one more year to prove this concept was a good idea and after selling out the NFBC Main Event in 2005 we were allowed a little longer string. We sold it out again in 2006 and here we are in 2023, having sold out 18 straight Main Events. That has allowed us to grow the grand prize in the Main Event from $100,000 to this year's record $200,000.

That's right, the grand prize in the NFBC Main Event will be $200,000 for our 20th anniversary season. We finished with a record 705 teams last year even during a 99-day MLB lockout and the future looks bright for this contest. Bob Cramutola of College Grove, Tennessee won the Main Event title as he became our 18th different Main Event champion in 19 seasons. Only NFBC Hall of Famer Lindy Hinkelman has been able to win this contest twice.

We opened Registration on Monday for all of our contests, but our players have been drafting since shortly after the World Series. For the first time in NFBC history, we actually hosted drafts before the World Series was done and we already have over 20 Draft Champions leagues done over the last four weeks. That has allowed our great NFBC ADPs to be available to everyone since mid-October. The NFBC season is off and rolling and I'm confident this will be our biggest and best yet.

The 2023 web site officially went live on Nov. 7th and all of the Rules and Prize Grids are on the contest pages, so check them out here:

https://nfc.shgn.com/gamestyles/baseball

As you can see on that Overview page, we have no fewer than 10 national contests with guaranteed grand prizes. We have several private leagues where all of the prize money stays within the leagues, but we've expanded on the national contests this year with the debut of our new NFBC 12-Team Best Ball National Championship. It is the industry's first year-long best ball national championship; draft-and-be-done style with a guaranteed $10,000 grand prize. Enjoy.

The NFBC Main Event isn't the only contest with a bigger grand prize this year. The NFBC Draft Champions National Championship now has a $40,000 grand prize as we expect close to 5,000 teams this year in that contest. The NFBC Auction Championship goes back to $30,000 this year, while the NFBC Online Auction Championship now has a $10,000 grand prize. While it's not bigger this year, the Rotowire Online Championship again has a $150,000 grand prize, the second largest in the fantasy baseball industry.

We have a lot of Online contest options, but we are hopeful that more people will be able to join us at the live events this year now that there is no threat of an MLB lockout. That hurt participation at our live events last year, and combined with the pandemic, made it tough to host three separate live events. We will not be hosting in Chicago this year, but we will be back in New York City at Dave & Busters on 42nd Street March 17th through the 19th and we'll be in Las Vegas March 23rd through the 26th. With this being our 20th anniversary season, I'd be surprised if we don't sell out every event in New York City and I'm confident that Las Vegas will be our biggest live event in our history. Plan early and set your travel and hotel plans early because Las Vegas is going to be crazy that weekend.

Now let's get drafting. We've created our official Signup List of Live Events for 2023 right here and we will update it every day as new signups come in. We provide this as transparency for all of our events so that you can see where the demand lies and so that you know which sharks are swimming in each pool!! :D No NFBC contest is going to be easy, but it's always nice to see who is teeing it up with you, right? :D

There is also a real-time Contest Signups list that you can break down by individual contests here: https://nfc.shgn.com/contestsignups/baseball

So let's begin. Let's start, however, by congratulating last year's incredible champions in each of our national contests. I told you about Bob Cramutola, who won the $175,000 grand prize in the 2022 NFBC Main Event. Bob now joins our other past NFBC Main Event champions such as Artie Rastelli, Brian Oldenski, David DiDonato, Terry Haney, Bobby Jurney, Lindy Hinkelman (twice), Dave Potts, Steve Jupinka, Ken Norred/Dan Semsel, Greg & Dale Morgan, Glenn Schroter, Rob Silver, Chris Fessler, John Pausma, Abdul Madani, James Tomony and Philippe Dussault. That's an All-Star lineup of owners if I've ever seen one.

Winning the record $150,000 grand prize in the 2022 Rotowire Sprint Online Championship was Andrew Geller as he defeated a record field of 2,388 teams. Also, kudos to Joshua Dawalt for winning the $75,000 grand prize in the NFBC Cutline Championship; Steven Cozzolino for winning the $20,000 grand prize in the NFBC Auction Championship; Steve Maier for winning the $30,000 grand prize in the NFBC Draft Champions National Championship; and Gregg Martin for winning the $7,000 grand prize in the NFBC Online Auction Championship. There were many, many other great national champions, so check out the Message Boards for all of those writeups from those great seasons.

Now who is going to win the top prizes in 2023? Let's find out.

It's time to officially kick off our 2023 NFBC Season with this Signup List of Live Events and all High-Stakes events. We will update this list with every signup that comes in. Remember that we won't charge for any of these Live Events until Feb. 15th if you agree to pay by check or credit card and no down payment is needed. Just sign up now to secure your spot in any of these events and pay on Feb. 15th. Every signup after Feb. 15th will be charged as they come in. If you do sign up for events using Money on your Player Account, those will be deducted right away. We recommend that you use money from your Player Account to avoid the 2% credit card fees. Also, keep an eye on all events and SIGN UP NOW so that you're not left behind. There's too much prize money on the line to be left out. Thanks all.

Here's the list to date, which will be updated every time a new signup comes here. Thanks all and good luck:

@quahogs Not Bellagio. That is just to fill in a name. Venue to be announced shortly.
Rogers Hornsby, Hall of Famer with the Cardinals was once asked " You love Baseball Rogers, but what do you do in the winter ? " His response......"I stare out the window and wait for spring "

We are officially at the Mirage for our 20th anniversary of live events in Las Vegas March 23-26. I will post the link to an affordable room block there and I hope most of our Las Vegas attendees stay at our host hotel. We have the Grand Ballroom at the Mirage, which has a similar setup as the Grand Ballroom at the Bellagio with plenty of space for many Main Event drafts on Saturday morning plus a big stage for our Stage of Champions.

It's a new hotel for us, but I'm excited about bringing everyone together at the Mirage during what is going to be a very busy weekend in Las Vegas and having so many of us staying at the same hotel. Should be a blast.

See you there Champ. You can't miss our 20th anniversary season live in New York and Las Vegas, right? :D

We have 15 owners signed up for the Las Vegas $1500 Auction Championship League on Friday, March 24th at 4 pm PT. These owners are guaranteed to be in a full league, but we aren't creating this league yet because we think there's plenty of time to fill a second league. Once we get 30 owners for this time slot, then we'll randomly select each league.

Thanks all. Friday is going to be a full day with great auctions. Can't wait.

Paraphrasing Bing Crosby, “It’s beginning to look a lot like….the Chicago Auction.” Chicago core 4 plus Giese, Albright, Winokur (+Mager?), Ehrman & Waggener amongst others on a Friday evening??? This one is sure to grab top billing on the marquee over the Beatles LOVE show. Looking forward to it. 8-)

NOW 3 FULL NFBC MAIN EVENT LEAGUES IN LAS VEGAS on Saturday, March 25th at 10 am PT!!

We are already working on our 4th league and we have room for 7 leagues, 105 teams at that time in Las Vegas. Secure your spots early if you want to join us for that epic event as we have a big stage in the Grand Ballroom at the Mirage and will again bring up all of our current NFBC Hall of Famers and past national champions. It's going to be a festive time at the Mirage in Las Vegas at that time.

See you there.

Just a heads up that there is a group of owners who have asked me if I'd host events on Monday, March 27th at the Mirage if demand was there and of course I said yes. I don't have space at the Mirage yet, but I know I can get a suite if needed or ask to retain one ballroom if needed.

So we have a $1500 Auction Championship league set up for the morning and have five signups already. I think there are a few others who are planning to sign up soon. We could do a Main Event that night too, like we've done before in the past on Monday night live, but I haven't put that on Registration yet. But I have a feeling we could get some takers for that one, too.

Anyway, if you plan on sticking around another day, those are the options. Here's the current signup list:

NFBC $1,500 AUCTION CHAMPIONSHIP
LAS VEGAS - Mirage
Monday, March 27, 10 am PT
1. Jon Stadtmueller
2. Jenny Butler
3. Matthew Shepherd
4. Daniel Semsel
5. Jason Duponte

We now have 4 FULL MAIN EVENT LEAGUES in Las Vegas at the Mirage on Saturday, March 25th at 11 am PT and we're already starting on a fifth league!! This is great news. We have room for 7 full leagues and 105 teams, so don't wait too long to secure your spot because this is going to be a fantastic time in Las Vegas.

Again, we are in the Grand Ballroom of the Mirage Convention Center the entire weekend and we have the ballroom with a Grand Stage this year, so we are bringing up our NFBC Hall of Famers and past national champions to the stage this year. We are going to honor them all and make them run up to the stage like it's The Price Is Right. Get in shape boys!!! :lol:

Keep the signups coming, but keep an eye on this Main Event time and the 4 pm $1500 Auction Championship League on Friday, March 24th at 4 pm PT. That's another event that is going to fill and once we fill this second league at this time we are NOT adding another one. We have a full slate that day, so get in now or be left out at that time. Thanks all and enjoy.

WE NOW HAVE 5 FULL NFBC MAIN EVENT LEAGUES IN LAS VEGAS FOR SATURDAY, MARCH 25TH AT 11 AM PT!!!

And we're already working on our sixth league now. We finished with seven Main Event Leagues in Las Vegas last year and we have room for at least seven full leagues this year. Don't delay if you want to secure a spot with us live at the Mirage that morning because spots are filling faster than they ever have before.

Thanks all and take advantage of our Mirage room block, which is good through February 15th. It's going to be an extremely busy weekend in Las Vegas and you'll want to stay at or near our host hotel if at all possible. Enjoy.
