Back again for another year....Here we go..THE HIT STREAK CONTEST- June!

Basic rules- pick a player, if he gets a hit, you are good. If for whatever reason he doesn't get a hit that day, you will get a strike (to include a DNP or a rainout). This time around, we will go with three strikes and you are out, rather than one and done. And there will be no minimum number of games needed to be played to win. Once you have selected a player, you can not choose him again. Your pick must be made prior to the FIRST GAME of the day. Pretty basic stuff. You may use a player in a doubleheader, with both games counting as "that" day's game.

Nothing new in terms of rules from last year:
1 - once you get a third strike, you are eliminated rather than one and done.
2 - I am hosting a side contest for those interested. I am participating in the contest and anyone who would like to challenge me is welcome. If you are interested in the challenge, just note it with your first pick. If you beat me, you can pick any card off of my Blog Tradelist as a prize (GU's/Autos etc. not included). If I beat you, I get to pick any card off your Trade Page. Max Value of $5 card. The side contest is COMPLETELY VOLUNTARY.

**Please edit your initial post with your picks**
**Please include the players team name with your pick** CAN NOT EMPHASIZE THIS ONE ENOUGH!!!!

Bumping up the prizes again this year.

The winner of the contest will get to choose one card from the A list, one card from the B list, one card from the C list and one card from the D list (the prizes have not been updated, will do that in the next couple days):

Good luck - the contest officially starts on Wednesday, June 1st.

And, as promised, I have decided to take the game up a notch for the participants. Since this is a hit streak contest, time to honor the two longest on record in MLB. Anyone who goes 45 games without missing will get a Pete Rose AU card and anyone who can go 57 games will get a Joe DiMaggio card (I probably can't afford an AU card, but will get you something nice). I will carry it month to month, longest streak last year was 22 games.

**update to the streak within the streak - I have decided to make it 45 games without striking out, rather than 45 straight correct picks, that will help with the DNP's and weather related misses. And it will be carryover - for the winner of the previous month only.

To address concerns from last year - I will try and keep tabs on when picks are posted, but this is really more about the honor system.

Please start your player list with either June 1 or Game 1 - it will make it easier for me to track on a daily basis.

And as mentioned at the end of the August contest - going to try a new rule to help eliminate the dreaded DNP's. Please select a designated hitter prior to the first game to use for the entire month in the event that your player on a particular day ends up as a DNP or a weather casualty. Take note, it must be a DNP - if your player for the day shows up in the box score, the DH rule will not take affect. I hope this makes sense, please ask questions if it doesn't, and since it is the first time using it, please don't be upset if it doesn't work out perfectly - I think this helped out last year, so we will keep it in place as a permanent addition to the game. Reminder that you must have a player selected for a game to have the DH rule in effect - IE, it will not save you if you forget to make a pick that day.

DH - Mike Trout - Angels

June 1 - Xander Boegarts - Red Sox
June 2 - Brandon Belt - Giants
June 3 - Dexter Fowler - Cubs - STRIKE 1
June 4 - Ben Zobrist - Cubs - STRIKE 2
June 5 - Daniel Murphy - Nationals
June 6 - Carlos Gonzalez - Rockies

And away we go...Hit Streak June 2016 is underway. We have 15 participants with 3 sidebet participants, still a bit low, but getting better, especially since there are some new faces.

Three Strikes - none

Two Strikes - none

One Strike - greatdadx2, david k.*, quota, mrknicks

No Strikes - katester44, chieftazmisty*, tennelson55*, anglinomics, topaz77, benski3, andydrummond, mm1sub, scc76, mrhaverkamp, rhauch

First pitch is today at 12:10pm, please have picks posted by than. A pretty good showing on the first day, not too many strikes. Still time to get on board with just a single strike against you.

For the DH - you must have a pick entered for that day to qualify for the DH to work.

Good luck to everyone.
