New York, NY–(BUSINESS WIRE)–For the first time, we’ve been able to offer players an opportunity to be a part of our annual “Who’s the Next Star?” competition.
As part of this year’s competition, we have teamed up with New York Mets players Matt Harvey, David Wright, Curtis Granderson, and Michael Conforto to take on a task that many teams face every year: finding a player who can take the next step in his development and become the star they want to be.
We have assembled an impressive roster of players from around the league, and we are excited to be launching the competition.
We are excited that so many of you have joined us on this journey and have contributed to our shared goal of bringing the game to new heights.
In order to compete, we will need to select the following five players:We will then begin the process of assigning the players to their respective leagues, and then each team will be tasked with selecting a player to play in the event they win the competition (the players who are selected to play will be named as finalists).
We will also be evaluating the players and their performances to determine which players will represent their respective league in the future.
In the spirit of a good competition, the first player selected to represent the team will receive $5,000.
This player will be then selected in the second round and will receive a bonus $5k to spend on a New York team-specific jersey.
We will then award the remaining $5.00 to the team that has the player in the Top 5 of our Top 10 Prospects.
In addition, we’re excited to announce that we will be holding a “Best of Five” series for the Top 10 prospects.
We’ll select five prospects from each of the leagues who will face each other for the final spot on the final roster, and each player will earn $5 million in prize money.
The winner of the Best of Five series will earn a total of $20,000 in prize funds, and the top five players will each earn $1.5 million.
The Best of 5 series will begin on Friday, March 14, and will be followed by the final round on Sunday, March 17.
All participants will be eligible to play on the second Saturday of the month starting March 15.
We invite you to join us for the launch of this new competition.
Please check back on Thursday, March 18, to see the results of our inaugural Best of 7 series.
