There is no limit to the number of teams that can play in ESPN's Fantasy Baseball game. However, team owners are strongly encouraged to place only one team in each group they join. A multiple teams in the same league page has been created to further inform owners about this often-troublesome situation. To purchase a team, view the tour or click on the link off the game's frontpage. To access your team after purchasing, go to the Fantasy Baseball 2003 frontpage and log in using your username and password. You can then enter your preseason team setup page. Once here, a team owner has the ability to name his team, create a personal profile, set his activity level, and join a group. When choosing team names, please keep your location and nickname clean. Your team may end up in feature articles and top-10 lists that are posted on the frontpage of Fantasy Baseball. Team names must be unique for every team in a given league. No two franchises, regardless of league, may share the same combination of location and nickname. Personal Profiles
Each fantasy baseball team owner receives their own personal profile page which allows other owners to learn about them. The personal profiles accept HTML and allow team owners to insert text, images, and/or add links to their favorite sites. Please keep these clean as well - account holders posting inappropriate material may be censored, or even have their teams taken away. Go to any owner's personal profile, including your own, by clicking on the owner's name.
