Games Available for Selection
- Pool Administrators will select 10 games each week that are played Friday through Sunday evening.
- At least 3 games on Friday, 3 games on Saturday, and 3 games on Sunday will be included in the 10 games.
- The Sunday Night game will always be included as one of the 10 games.
- Of the 10 games, 5 will be from the AL and 5 from the NL, plus one 'Rain Out' game from either league.
- What's a 'Rain Out' game? Answer: In the event your chosen game is rained out, postponed, cancelled, or in general not played that weekend, the 'rain out' game selection will automatically kick in as your weekly selection. You may of course choose which team you think will win this 'rain out' game yet the default will be the home team. The rain out game offered each week will be one scheduled to play in a dome stadium or with an easily predictable dry climate/weather forecast.
- Repeat team picks are allowed unlike many NFL survivor pools. Pick the same team as many times as you'd like.
