Welcome, peeps from FantasyPros!

When fantasy lineups lock Friday evening, the action on InGame Fantasy will be just getting started. Fantasy baseball guru Paul Sporer of Fangraphs will be streaming live on Twitch and Periscope for the play-by-play of Friday’s featured contest, Sporer’s Sandlot.

Here’s how it works:

  1. Download the InGame Fantasy app for a fantasy experience like no other. All drafting goes down DURING games.
  2. Make a deposit with the promo code “FPros” and you’ll get a real 50% deposit bonus (up to $50) that hits your account right away — not like the other sites where they release it incrementally the more you play.
  3. Join Sporer’s Sandlot for $5. The total prize pool will be $150.
  4. Tune into Twitch or Periscope at 7:05 p.m. EST to watch the stream, but also feel free to get in some swings during Friday’s matinee between the Brewers and Cubs.
  5. Sporer will broadcast for a half hour and return at 9 p.m. to take the contest home until it ends 9:35. The top scorers at that time will finish in the money.

So you think you can take down a fantasy wizard? Well, now’s your chance to prove it.

Our resident expert Paul Sporer is taking on five (un)lucky newcomers on InGame Fantasy this weekend. If you can outscore him in a 3-inning game, you’ll pocket $5 in free play. And whoever (if anyone) beats him the worst will score an additional $5 bonus.

How do you sign up? Glad you asked.

  1. Download InGame Fantasy for iOS or Android here.
  2. Use promo code Sporer at signup.
  3. Five winners will be selected at random and announced Friday.
