Play in FanDuel's Home Run Challenge for Free!

FanDuel has released a simple, free-to-play contest that rewards players for picking major league hitters who hit a home run. The contest is called Home Run Challenge, and full details can be found here.

Here’s a quick breakdown of how the contest works:

• As mentioned, it’s free to play.

• All you have to do is pick three hitters from the available pool of players.

• You get one point for each home run one of your players hits that day.

• The players with the top scores for that day will split a $200 prize and get entry into the $100,000 HR Championship on September 14th.

• Your scores for the week are tabulated with the top scores getting even bigger prizes then the daily payouts (this week’s payouts are in the following image).
