NEW YORK, March 29, 2011
– With the opening day of the 2011 Major League Baseball season around the corner, 11Runs announces today the launch of its new fantasy baseball game. 11Runs is a new kind of fantasy baseball game that’s simpler and faster, enabling users to play twice a week instead of being tied down for the whole season. Players can join randomly selected public competitions or they can create private competitions for their friends. 11Runs includes tight social integration to Facebook and Twitter making it simple to play with friends.
.

Unlike most current fantasy baseball games, 11Runs offers short, flexible games that are easier to enter and play in. Other competing sites that offer current fantasy baseball games require you to commit to an entire baseball season and users need to manage their teams each week to ensure that they still in the running. 11Runs takes a different approach letting competitors enter quick, easy competitions twice per week. The competitions are based on the mid-week and weekend series that are played in the MLB. 11Runs can be played alongside the more traditional fantasy games since it requires less time and micromanagement. With its simple and straightforward game play 11Runs appeals to anyone who loves baseball.

.
Once users have entered a competition they can create their perfect team using 11Runs easy player selection tools. Users can see their team take shape and find stats on the players they want to add to their team. 11Runs offers an easy way to create teams with a simplified and streamlined process. Competitors don’t have to meet up for a simultaneous draft and users can submit their teams to more than one competition. Additionally, more than one competitor can draft the same MLB player onto their team and users can create their team at any time before the competition deadline.
.

Deep Social Integration

.
11Runs includes tight integration with social networks. Users can choose their Facebook, Twitter, or Yahoo profiles to login to the site. Additionally, users can post updates about their winnings directly to their Facebook profile and show off their victories to all their friends. Users can also see a live Twitter stream of 11Runs updates right on the site and stay up-to-date with all the latest news. One of the best parts of fantasy baseball is playing with friends and 11Runs makes it easy. It takes just a few clicks to set up a competition and invite just the people the user wants.
.

What prizes do I get?

.
11Runs offers cash prizes to the winners of its weekly competitions. Competitors choose the level that they want to play at and enter a small entry fee ranging from $4.99 to $24.99. The competitions work just like the sports spools that are so popular between friends and coworkers. Whoever wins the competition takes home the prize and the pride of winning.

Fantasy Baseball Anywhere You Go

.
Users can also keep track of their games with the newly released 11Runs iPhone app. They can follow live scoring, enter competitions, and keep track of every step of the game. This means that 11Runs competitors will never miss a moment of action as they follow the competition wherever they go.
