THE ‘PINCH HITTER’ PROCESS

When using the form to make a ‘Pinch Hitter’ transaction you will get an automated “got it” reply. When requested replacement is entered you will also get a simple “Acknowledged” email reply.


If you use the send email option include

all     the required information. There will 

be no automated reply but you will receive

an “Acknowledged” email when your move

has been registered.

‘PINCH HITTER’ RULE EXAMPLE

Some Derbiers are not understanding how the new ‘Pinch Hitter’ Replacement Rule functions.

Derby Hitters will be credited with home runs hit while they are active on a roster.

However, activity dates are based on the date ranges for the Derby Report ranges (shown above).

‘Pinch Hitter’ activation does not take place immediately on the day it is reported.


Example: You report a player change on August 10. The change does not take effect on August 11.     The activation officially takes place after the current HR Derby date range ends, So in the example of       a change reported on April 10 you will have the ‘dropped’ hitter until the end of the current date range which would be Games Played thru August 16. You will be credited with HRs hit by the ‘dropped’ hitter from Opening Day until August 16. The new hitter starts playing for your team on August 17 and you   will be credited with HRs hit from that day until the end of the season.

COVID Replacements Closed

With the start of play hitters who test positive for COVID can only be replaced by using the one time per entry ‘Pinch Hitter’ Replacement Rule. The Pinch Hitter must come from the same Group as the hitter being replaced.


But remember… this can only be done once during the season… so use that move wisely!

CHECKS & MONEY ORDERS

Notification will be posted here, and an email will be sent, to warn everybody when checks will be deposited. None of us wants to deal with ‘bad’ checks!
