MLB Spring Training Challenge #4
And now to take some time out from all of these awesome, and by awesome I mean hillariously bad, guesses. Don't take that as a hint, because it's not. This next challenge is going to keep you guys thinking though. You're going to have to do some digging and checking around because you know how Spring Training is. Some players will play a few innings, some will get an at bat, some pitchers will throw a few innings and some with throw a few batters. It's pretty much organized practice. Which is what makes this challenge so tough. 

There are 16 games on Wednesday March 27th. That means there will be 32 teams. Some teams play twice. Each game that they play in will be count as a seperate team. Check closely to make sure who is playing with each squad. Each tribe must turn in a roster of 32 players, with one coming from each team that is playing. If a tribe turns in 2 players from the same team then both will be thrown out. The rosters must be made up of 2 players from each position on the field(except pitcher), and for a player to qualify at that position, he must play it during the game. If you pick him for a position and he doesn't play it, then his score is thrown out.  That is 16 roster spots. A DH is not being used. With 16 spots left, each team will need to turn in 6 pitchers that start a game. and 10 pitchers that pitch in relief. If you turn in more than 6 that start a game then your top scorer will be thrown out of the challenge and the same for relievers.

Position Players Only
1 plate appearance=1 point
1 Hit=2 points
Extra base hits=1 additional point per base (ex. doubles are worth a total of 3, hit gets 2 points and the double gets 1 additional)
Runs=3 points
RBI=3 points
Steal=2 points
Base on balls=1 point
Strike Out= -2 point
Double Play= -4 points

1 out= 2 point
Strike Out= 2 additional points
Walk= -1 point
Hit= -1 point
Runs= -2 points
Win= 10 points
Loss= -10 points

The team with the most points at the end of this challenge will win the challenge and receive a bonus on the next challenge. The team that finishes with the fewest points will go to tribal council and vote out a member. Each captain must submit their teams picks to the survivorxii account before the start of the first game on Wednesday, which is at 1:05 EST. If the captain can not make the picks then the captain must post in the thread who the are putting in charge of turning it in. If there are any questions then feel free to sitemail horvie or myself and we will try to clear up an questions.
