Registration for this division will be single-player.  Registration will include 15 games plus playoffs, a team jersey, and a cash prize for the 1st and 2nd place teams determined by the Championship series.  A $100 deposit is required at registration, a refund will be provided if a player is not drafted by a team.  No refund will be granted for someone that gets drafted and decides not to play.  If a player gets drafted but does not show up for the first 3 games, the draft captain is given the option of replacing that player with another player that was registered with the same player rating.  If a jersey is not returned or returned not in good condition, the cost of the jersey will be added to the player’s BHI account that they will be required to pay.

  • Call-ups can play a maximum of 2 games per team per season.  A violation of this will result in a forfeit of the game with a score of 5-0.
    • All players in attendance will be credited with a game played.
  • A team may ask for a call-up in the BHI Draft League group by using the hashtag #needcallup.  Call-ups should respond to the post to say they are available to play.

 

Cash Prizes:

Cash prizes will be divided equally among all team members.  Prize money received will depend on how many games each player played during the regular season.  

  • Players will receive full credit if they play 12 regular season games.
  • For each game missed your equity will be decreased by 6.67%.  
  • If a player is traded from/ to a team that wins a cash prize they will be subject to the same percentage.
  • If a player quits, they will receive no share of the cash prize

Ex: Based on $2,000 Cash Prize

  • 2,000 divided by 16 players = $125/ player
  • $125 divided into 12 games = $8.33/ game
    • Play 12+ games = $125 Payout
    • Play 5 games = $41.65 Payout
    • Get traded off team after 3 games and team wins = $25
    • Get traded to a team that wins and plays 3 games = $25

 

ANY MONEY LOST FROM A PLAYER MISSING GAMES WILL GET DIVIDED UP AMONG THE PLAYERS THAT PLAYED 12+ GAMES (TRADED PLAYERS WILL RECEIVE CREDIT FOR GAMES PLAYED BEFORE BEING TRADED FOR THE BONUS MONEY)

  • If 5 players miss 5 games each that is $208.25
    • $208.25.25 would then get divided among the players that played 12+ games.
      • Ex: 5 players played 12+ games = $125 + 41.65 = $166.65
