Join The Draft Buddy 13-Run Baseball Pool

Have you ever heard of a 13-run baseball pool? Early response from a handful of our members indicates, many have not. It is baseball, it is fun, it is easy, and takes zero skill. Perfect! I’m in. If you want in, read on and join in the comments.

What Is A 13-Run Baseball Pool?

In a 13-run baseball pool each person in the pool picks one Major League Baseball team. That’s it, that is all you have to do. No two people can pick the same team.

Then from the start date of the pool we track when each team scores no runs in a game, 1 run in a game, 2 runs in a game, 3 runs, 4 runs, etc., etc. all the way up to 13 runs in a game. The first person whose team scores each of those 14 possible run totals, wins.

Yep, pretty sure there is no skill involved. Although one does wonder is a team like the Oakland Athletics will ever score 10, 11, 12, and 13 runs in a game. Think of it as baseball bingo, and a fun way to track a team you normally wouldn’t follow.

Draft Buddy 13-Run Baseball Pool Rules

For our 13-run baseball pool, we’ll use MLB Opening Day, March 30, 2023 as the first day to start tracking scores.

One twist for this pool is you can enter or change the team you pick all the way up to April 15th April 20th, even though stats accumulate starting March 30th. A team cannot be picked more than once however, so you can only throw back your team if there is another team still available.

We will declare an American League and a National League winner. There are no monetary prizes for this pool. This is for fun and bragging rights, which are priceless.

This pool is open to all Draft Buddy members. To select your team, post your choice in the comments below. Limit one team per person. We can reset for a new pool once someone’s team hits all 14 run totals.
