Rules: Scoring Settings (Custom Leagues)

CUSTOM SCORING TYPE FORMATS
Custom leagues can choose one of five different basic Scoring Type formats:

    Rotisserie: Rotisserie, or 'Roto', is the most common way to play Fantasy Baseball. In this scoring format teams are ranked from first to last in each statistical category. Points are then awarded according to the order in each category and totaled to determine an overall score and league rank.

    Points-Based: Points-Based scoring allows you to assign a given point value to each individual statistical category (ie HR=4, RBI=1, etc.) Standings are based on the accumulation of points covering all statistical categories and combined into one total points column. The team with the most overall points wins.

    Head-to-Head: Points: "H2H" Points is very similar to how fantasy football is played. Teams play each other one-on-one on a rotating schedule throughout the season, much like in real MLB. This format allows you to assign a given point value to individual statistical categories (i.e. HR=4, RBI=1, etc.) and each scoring period's winner is determined solely by which team accumulates the most fantasy points versus a single opponent. The end result is a win (1-0-0), loss (0-1-0) or tie (0-0-1). If selected, your league will have team schedules/playoffs and you will have the option to setup divisions.

    Head-to-Head: Each Category: "H2H" Each Category is the most common type of head-to-head play in Fantasy Baseball. Teams play each other one-on-one on a rotating schedule throughout the season, much like in real MLB. This format allows you to select "X" number of statistical categories. For each scoring period team totals are accumulated and a win, loss or tie is credited in each category based on opponent's weekly totals (i.e. 6-3-1 in a 10 category league). If selected, your league will have team schedules/playoffs and you will have the option to setup divisions.

    NOTE: If the League Manager sets Home Team wins as a tiebreaker, the home team will win the first tied category. If there is a second, the away team will win. The tiebreaker will work alternately between the two teams.

    Head-to-Head: Most Categories: "H2H" Most Categories is similar to the other "H2H" formats. Teams play each other one-on-one on a rotating schedule throughout the season, much like in real MLB. This format allows you to set "X" number of statistical categories. For each scoring period (usually Monday through Sunday) team totals are accumulated in each of the categories. At the end the scoring period the winner is determined by which team wins the most number of categories. The end result is a win (1-0-0), loss (0-1-0) or tie (0-0-1). These results correspond directly to each team's overall record. If selected, your league will have team schedules/playoffs and you will have the option to setup divisions.

CUSTOM SCORING OPTIONS
Listed below are all of the stat categories available for you to create your custom league. While you may be tempted to go nuts and use them all, due to display restrictions you will only be able to use a maximum of 15 Batting categories and 15 Pitching categories (30 total). Feel free to experiment with exotic scoring leagues. For example, you could create a Pitching Only league where the roster is solely comprised of Pitchers and the only scoring categories are pitching related!

Roto & H2H Categories notes:
-Categories with a "*" are scored with the fewer (or lower) totals the better.
-In Rotisserie baseball it's important to keep a balance between Batting & Pitching categories and it's recommended to have the same number on each side.
-A maximum of 15 categories are allowed on both sides (30 total).
-Fielding categories are not be included in Live Scoring.

Points-Based Scoring notes:
-The League Manager can assign a point value to each category.
-Decimal values are allowed to the nearest tenth of a point.
-IP are computed as Outs Recorded, so unless you want to use decimal scoring you should keep this a factor of three. For example, if your pitchers throws 6 1/3 innings, he will recieve 19 points.
-Fielding categories are not be included in Live Scoring.
