    After running successful 13-run BIFs last year, both GuisseppeFranco and donttazemebro have provided their blessings for me to run this BIF for 2013. I've participated in many BIFs/LIFs, but decided it was finally time to run one on my own. Here are the rules:
    • Maximum of 30 players can join the pool
    • Preference given to those who have a good past trading history or have participated in BIFs before
      • Members with limited history must have a sponsor vouch for you.
    • Each member will be assigned a team randomly by the website, runyourpool.com
    • Each time your team plays, the number of runs they score will be tracked, regardless if they win the game or not
    • The goal is to be the first BA who's team scores every number from 0-13 runs
    • The winning BA will receive a box with a minimum of 44oz of beer from 28 of the other players, due within 30 days of the pool ending.
    • NEW: As a consolation for having the least number of scores ticked, the BA with the team in last place will receive a box from the BA who is in second to last place (this person will not need to send a box to the winner). Last place still sends a box to the winner.

    Please send me a BM if you'd like to be a part of this. Be sure to include your full name, email address, phone number and address in case you win. Do NOT post ITT that you'd like to be a part.

    Once I have you confirmed I will send you all of the necessary info to join this pool's group on runyourpool.com. Please make sure your user name is your BA name. After we have reached 30 participants and everyone has registered on the website, I will have it randomly generate teams for all of us.

    Tentative start date is May 27, but this may be moved up or pushed out depending on how quickly this fills up. I'm going to start it on a Monday so everyone is on a level playing field. Questions or if I've missed something, please let me know!

    Thanks,

    Robbie

    Looks like we are full! Looks like everyone has registered. I'll have it randomly assign teams and will post the full list later today. Should be able to start today, but will confirm after I complete the random team assignment. Also, if everyone can ensure that your team name is your BA name, that would help me keep track of things. Thanks again to everyone who has joined! Good luck everyone!

    Nice. This game is pure luck, but I like the fact that Baltimore leads the AL in runs scored.

    Good luck everyone!

    The Cubs....here goes never scoring double digits!

    I am actually excited though. It will be fun to watch an NL team (I am a Rangers fan, so watch mostly AL ball)

    While I'm excited to get 2 scores today, 1 and 0 would have not been my first choices haha

    0 is actually a semi-tough one. IIRC it took the Angels a while to get blanked in the 2nd half of last season.

    The higher the score the harder, though 0 is tougher than say 1, 2, 3 or maybe 4...

    Anything 7+ is a great thing to knock off the list.
