Build a hitting streak and win TCN cash + a prize pack

Build the longest hitting streak in April, and win TCN cash and a prize pack!

For the month of April, all users will be allowed to select one MLB player per day who they think will get a hit, and whichever user builds the longest hitting streak will receive a TCN cash prize, and a baseball card prize pack.

All users are eligible for this contest. I will play, but I will not accept any prize, so don't figure me into the standings.

HOW TO ENTER

You may select your players in one of two ways – daily or all at once. Please copy and paste the following into your reply. If you are going to pick players daily, please edit your original post instead of posting a new reply.

We will use the honor system, and assume that no one will change their old or missed picks. If you are caught cheating, you will be removed from the contest and reported to the Admin.

All picks must be made before noon EST each day. In the event of a game starting prior to noon, picks for that game must be made before the start of the early game.

HOW TO PLAY

The idea is to build as long of a hitting streak as possible by picking one MLB player each day. If the player you pick gets at least one hit, then your hitting streak stays alive. If the player you pick has at least one official at-bat without a hit, then your streak ends, but you may begin a new streak.

If your selected player plays but does not bat in a game or does not have any official at-bats (i.e. walks twice and has a sac fly), then your streak does not end, but if your player comes off of the bench and goes 0-for-1, your streak will end. You may not select a pitcher, but you may select the same player more than once during the month.

If you fail to select a player, your streak will end.

If you pick a player whose team is not playing that day, your streak will end.

For example:

April 1: Albert Pujols, 1-for-3
April 2: Mike Trout, 2-for-4
April 3: Denard Span, 0-for-0, 3 BB, sac bunt
April 4: Bryce Harper, 1-for-5
April 5: Nick Swisher, 0-for-4

In the above example, the user would have a streak of three games, with Pujols, Trout and Harper counting in the streak, Span not counting against the streak, and Swisher ending the streak.

Users may join the contest at any time in April, but users may not make retroactive picks for days they miss.

RESOLVING TIES

1. If two users are tied for the longest streak at the end of the month, but neither streak is active, the user whose players had the most hits during the month will win the grand prize.

2. If two or more users are tied for the longest streak at the end of the month and at least one streak is active, the user(s) with an active streak will continue play until the tie is broken. If only one user has an active streak, they can try to break the streak on May 1. If the user doesn’t break the tie on May 1, the first criteria will be used to break the tie.

3. If two or more users are tied for the longest streak at the end of the month, and all streaks are active, the game will continue until one user is declared the winner. If all streaks end on the same day, the first criteria will be used to break the tie.

PRIZES

1. For each day a user’s selected player gets a hit, the user will earn 10 TCN cash.
2. Any user who builds a five-game hitting streak will receive an additional 50 TCN cash.
3. Any user who builds a 10-game hitting streak will receive an additional 100 TCN cash.
4. Any user who builds a 20-game hitting streak will receive an additional 200 TCN cash.
5. Prizes 2-4 will only be awarded once.

GRAND PRIZE

The user who builds the longest streak will earn an additional 500 TCN cash and will receive a baseball card prize pack from me. Included in that prize pack will be at least one autograph and an assortment of rookie/inserts of my choosing, and an assortment of base cards from the team the user chooses.

**All prizes will be awarded at the beginning of May**
