Fantasy Baseball Leagues heat up with live drafts for MLB start

       The regular season is right around the corner for the MLB, and this means fantasy baseball managers everywhere are participating in live drafts getting ready for the Fantasy Baseball season that mirrors the MLB with stats from every MLB player taking on a new meaning to fantasy league managers.

        FightinPhillies.com has it’s own fantasy league this year, which is the 10th year of participation in ‘fantasy leagues’ from Yahoo Sports, which is one of the biggest places that sponsors Fantasy Baseball Leagues for private leagues and the public leagues. Yahoo Sports is the official sponsor of Fantasy Baseball for the MLB.

         Many team managers scour over all the information they can find on players, and it makes it extra fun for those managers to watch players from all the teams in baseball rather than players from their own favorite team. This year, there is an offering by one of the biggest names in business, Bloomberg. Bloomberg Sports is in their first year of a partnership with Major League Baseball in offering a brand new tool via their online aggregation of the latest news, stats, and updates for fantasy baseball team managers. Bloomberg Sports is a very user friendly graphical interface program online that keeps the latest info flowing to team managers both pre and post draft for owners.
