Play Ball! It’s time for Fantasy Baseball Season!

The confetti is cleaned up from Super Bowl XLVI, but there’s no time to sit back on your sporting laurels.  Fantasy baseball season is here!  Where are you going to set up your team?  What fantasy baseball team names are you going to come up with?

Fantasy Baseball Leagues

Fantasy baseball managers have a variety of league providers to choose from:  CBSSports Fantasy Baseball, ESPN Fantasy Baseball, FOX Fantasy Baseball, MLB Fantasy Baseball, and Yahoo! Fantasy Baseball are among the most popular sites, and all of them are open for business for the 2012 season.

All of these major fantasy baseball providers offer virtually identical features:  free leagues, pay leagues, head-to-head leagues, rotisserie leagues, public leagues, private leagues, snake drafts, auction drafts, customizable scoring, mobile apps, live scoring, and more.  Choosing a provider really just boils down to what you find most visually appealing and easiest to use, along with where all your friends are going to be playing.

Fantasy Baseball Dates

The MLB season gets underway on March 28 when the Oakland Athletics and the Seattle Mariners get after it in Japan.  The St. Louis Cardinals and the Miami Marlins take the field on April 4, and April 5 is designated as Opening Day.

Fantasy baseball leagues, then, will probably want to set their drafts for some time in mid- to late-March.  The earlier you set up your league, however, the earlier you can get going with the important tasks of researching players, ranking them, and, of course, coming up with cool fantasy baseball team names.
