Hi Everyone,

The MLB Survivor Pool is now ready for signup.  The pool will be run on the
website officefootballpool.com.  To sign up, use the following link.  You
will need to create your account as part of the signup process if you
haven't already done so for the NCAA pool.  Please remember your username
and password when signing up.  You will be able to add as many entries as
you would like on your account.  Please forward this email to friends if
they would like to join.


See below or on the website for the rules.  You will choose 1 team per week
and that team must win at least 50% of their games that week.  You can not
pick the same team twice.  *This pool is DOUBLE Elimination, meaning you
are knocked out after TWO losses, not one.*  Each week runs from Monday
through Sunday.  There are 25 weeks.  The pool will begin on Monday, April
2nd.  The early games played prior to Monday, April 2nd and the three games
after the allstar break will not be included in the pool.

Send the entry fees and a separate sheet of paper for each pool that
contains the following info:
1) Name
2) Phone Number
3) Email address
4) Entry name(s)
5) The words "NCAA" or "MLB" if you are sending fees for both pools at the
same time (see below).  Make sure there are separate sign up sheets for
each pool.

Please write legibly on letter size paper.

The pool is CASH ONLY.  Entry fee is $100 per entry.  If you sign up and do
not send your entry fees, your entries will be changed to inactive before
the pool starts.  Deadline for entry fees is Sunday, April 1st.  I will be
sending additional meetup days and times as well.

*NO USPS MAIL. * You can use USPS Priority mail or one of the other express
services (FedEx, UPS, etc).  Make sure you keep your tracking number until
your package has been delivered.  Signature required is OK, and you can use
your own phone number on the form.

Here is the current NYC meetup schedule for the NCAA Survivor Pool, but you
are welcome to drop off for MLB as well.  I will be adding additional days
and times for the week leading up to the baseball season.  This is only for
those folks who are going to drop off in person.

Please have your entry fees and signup sheet in an envelope prior to
stopping by.  I will wear a dark blue News 12 baseball hat at the meet ups
so you'll know what to look for if you've never met me.

The signup sheet should contain the following information:
1) Name
2) Phone Number
3) Email address
4) Entry name(s)
5) The words "NCAA" or "MLB" if you are dropping off fees for both pools at
the same time. Make sure there are separate sign up sheets for each pool.

Please write legibly on letter size paper.

The pool is CASH ONLY.  Entry fee is $100 per entry.

You pick one major league baseball team per week and they need to win at
least half of their games for you to advance to the next week.  If they win
less than 1/2 their games (less than 50%) then you are eliminated.

Note:  This pool is Double Elimination, meaning you lose after TWO losses,
not one.

For the purposes of this pool, a week starts on Monday 8:00 AM Eastern and
ends the following Monday at the same time.

The winner is the person who advances to the latest week.  If 2 or more
people are eliminated in the same week, it's a tie, regardless of the day
or time they are eliminated.

You may only pick a team once for the duration of the pool.  For example,
if you pick the Rockies in week 1, you can never pick them again.

The pick deadline for this pool is Mondays at 10 PM.  However, once a game
starts, picks for the teams involved in that game are locked and can't be
changed or entered.  You can only enter or change picks for teams that
haven't started playing that week.

The website does not have an Autopick feature for Baseball Survivor.

If a game is rained out or suspended, the results of that game are not
counted until the game is completed.  If your picked team plays fewer games
than expected, they still must win 1/2 of their games that week.  So if
they only play 4 games, they need to win 2.  If they play 5 games, they
need to win 3.

If your team plays a doubleheader or more games than are on the original
schedule, all the games count. So if they play 7 or 8 games in a week, they
must win 4 for you to advance.

Each person will be responsible for entering their own picks on the
website.  To enter picks, you need to sign into the website with your own
personal screen name and password and go to My Picks for the picksheet.

It is your responsibility to confirm that your own picks are accepted by
the website.  You should see the Congratulations Screen after submitting
your picks and you should receive a pick confirmation email.  If you are
still unsure if your picks were accepted, you should return to the
picksheet, not by using your browser's back button, but by clicking on the
My Picks link.  If your picks were accepted they will be prefilled on the

If there is ever a discrepancy between what the website shows and what the
player says he/she entered, the website will be considered correct.  If
there is ever a discrepancy between what the website shows and a pick
confirmation email, the website will be considered correct.
