Welcome to Yahoo Sports Fantasy Baseball Pro Leagues ("Fantasy Baseball Pro Leagues" or the "Service"), owned and operated by Yahoo Inc. ("Yahoo"). Yahoo offers Fantasy Baseball Pro Leagues to you subject to these Additional Terms of Service, (which supplement the Yahoo Terms of Service ("TOS"), located at https://info.yahoo.com/legal/us/yahoo/utos/terms, hereby incorporated by reference); the Yahoo Fantasy Baseball Pro Leagues Official Contest Rules ("Official Contest Rules", located at http://baseball.fantasysports.yahoo.com/b1/proleagues_rules; and any other rules or guidelines that may be published by Yahoo on a periodic basis (all of which are hereby incorporated by reference and any of which may be updated by Yahoo from time to time) (collectively, the "Agreement").
ANY PARTICIPATION IN FANTASY BASEBALL PRO LEAGUES WILL CONSTITUTE ACCEPTANCE OF THIS AGREEMENT. IF YOU DO NOT AGREE TO ABIDE BY THE ABOVE, PLEASE DO NOT PARTICIPATE IN FANTASY BASEBALL PRO LEAGUES.
To participate in Fantasy Baseball Pro Leagues, you must have a valid Yahoo ID to store your registration data ("Registration Data"), among other things. If you do not have a Yahoo ID, you will be prompted to sign up for a free one before completing the registration process for Fantasy Baseball Pro Leagues.
For the 2014 Yahoo Sports Fantasy Baseball Pro Leagues season, payment of an entry fee of $20.00, $50.00, $100.00, or $250.00 (depending on the service selected) is required to register a team (an "Entry Fee"). Please note that teams may only be played under the Yahoo ID with which they were created, and may not be transferred to another Yahoo ID or played by another person.
Fantasy Baseball Pro Leagues consists of a series of individual leagues, each requiring 12 participating players to be eligible to draft (each, an "Individual League"). Each Individual League is a separate skill contest, and Yahoo awards prizes in connection with each Individual League. Please note that you must meet all eligibility requirements and otherwise comply with the Official Contest Rules to be eligible to win a prize. In particular, due to restrictions in state law, residents of Arizona, Iowa, Louisiana, Montana, Vermont, or Washington are not eligible to participate in Fantasy Baseball Pro Leagues. Other eligibility restrictions apply, as described in the Official Contest Rules.
Your Entry Fee(s) for Fantasy Baseball Pro Leagues give(s) you access to the Service from the time you sign up through the end of the Major League Baseball’s current regular season. The payment method that you provide as part of your Registration Data will automatically and immediately be billed for your Entry Fee(s). All currency references are in U.S. dollars. If your Individual League does not reach 12 participating players prior to the start time of the draft or if you withdraw your participation in your Individual League at least 72 hours before the start time of the draft, Yahoo will issue you a Fantasy Baseball Pro Leagues team credit for the amount of your Entry Fee (a "Credit"). You may use this Credit towards another Fantasy Baseball Pro Leagues team of the same value during the 2014 Yahoo Sports Fantasy Baseball Pro Leagues season. In the event that you do not use this Credit prior to the end of the registration period, Yahoo will automatically refund the Credit amount to the payment method used to submit your Entry Fee. Please note that, except as described above, your payment for Fantasy Baseball Pro Leagues is non-refundable and non-transferable. You may not cancel your Fantasy Baseball Pro Leagues account before the end of the current regular season.
The Service is available for individuals aged 18 years or older, or the age of legal majority in the individual’s state of legal residence, whichever is greater.
