Hey all! It’s nearly Opening Day, which means Pregame Picks are back!

What are Pregame Picks?

Well, they’re just one of the many things that make HH a little more fun. Before every game (around 10-pm, but possibly later) a pregame post will come asking you to guess on a few things about the game. Guesses can range from picking the Runs and Hits for each team in the game... guessing which player is going to be the first to reach 3rd base... whether the Angels SP lasts longer than the opponent’s SP... who knows. The possibilities are endless!

How to participate? Well, that’s simple!

1. In the pregame post, there will be a Google Docs sheet.

2. Fill out the questions there and SUBMIT before the game starts!

3. But you’re not done yet! You need to also comment in the PGP Post itself before your guess will be valid. This is the ensure we don’t have someone putting in bogus entries for someone else.

4. Then you just wait for the game to play out, and see if you scored!

SIMPLE.

Cutoff of entries is the listed game-start time of the game, so any entries after that point will be null and void. (This includes having both your google docs and comment post in!). Delayed-Start games (such as a rain delay) will have the cutoff extended until the game actually starts. Postponed game will be taken care of on a case-by-case basis.

Final results are based on MLB box scores when the results are tallied (usually right after the game ends). Any changes made after that will not be considered.

There should be a post on Sundays that give a ’Weekly result’, basically who did best that week. Try to catch any errors 24 hours within this post coming up. This is the best chance to check up on errors! It’s your responsibility to make sure everything’s going correct.

If there are any ambiguities in the question, make sure to ask me. Otherwise it will go to my interpretation of the question. You can try to post in the comments, but the for sure way to get a response is to email me. Just click on my username, and you’ll find a link to my email.

Before we begin, it has been brought to my attention that I haven’t posted the results from last year. HERE they are.

Without further ado, Game 1: Pregame Picks.
