The good people over at Rotohog asked us to post this release regarding a new Fantasy Baseball Rivalry League where Yankee fans and Red Sox fans can go at each other like our ancestors used to. I for one suck at all fantasy games, mainly because I forget that I signed up for a team, and then I check in a month later only to find that half my staff has been injured. Sounds like fun though...
LOS ANGELES, CA--(MARKET WIRE)--Mar 28, 2008 -- Baseball's Opening Night on Sunday marks the start of the first ever Fantasy Baseball Rivalry League. New York Yankee faithful will battle it out with Red Sox Nation as they play fantasy baseball head-to-head at RotoHog.com.
"This represents the biggest rivalry in all of sports. Does anyone hate a Yankees fan more than a Red Sox fan, or vice versa? Now they can prove who is the best with their knowledge of the game," said Chris Austin, Director of Marketing for RotoHog.com.
The RotoHog Rivalry League is free to play, and participants are also automatically entered into the 2008 RotoHog.com Fantasy Baseball Championship with prizes to the Top 100 players at season's end, including a new 2008 Ford Mustang, Vizio LCD and plasma HDTVs, Nintendo Wiis, Sony PSPs, Sony Blu-ray Entertainment Systems and more.
