To be eligible for a Daily Scoring Period, your player selections must be submitted by the applicable Daily Scoring Period deadline(s) outlined in the chart above. Note: For MLB players who play more than one position, SideLeague.com will determine position eligibility. If you select a player for one position but then such player plays another eligible position for that applicable game (e.g. a shortstop plays second base), his statistics at the new position will count towards your fantasy point total but he will still take up the positional slot of his initial position.

Your last selection that is received by the applicable deadline will be used to tabulate your fantasy points. Selections cannot be modified for any game that is in progress or is already completed. Fantasy points will not be awarded if 1) a player selection is not made by the applicable deadline; 2) the selected MLB player(s) does not play in the game for any reason; 3) the selected MLB player does not perform any of the actions listed below to generate any points in a game; 4) a game is cancelled for any reason and a player selection is not updated; or 5) a game is postponed or rescheduled, for any reason, to take place during a subsequent Daily Scoring Period and a player selection is not updated. All selections must be accepted and acknowledged by the computer servers by the applicable deadline (as determined by Sponsor in its sole discretion) to be considered valid, timely, and eligible.
