Selection of Players:
During the Contest Period, every day on which a regular season MLB game is played you can get chance to select one or two players from a list displayed by MLB.com of MLB players who are on each MLB Club's active roster on that Game Day.
You can select any MLB player from the Active Players List, including any player you have formerly chosen, until 5 minutes prior to the scheduled start of the MLB game.
You can make your daily player selection up to 10 calendar days prior to any Game Day and change your selection at any time earlier to the Lock Time for any applicable MLB player on that Game Day. The Active Players List may change as a result of injury or other roster changes, so be alert!
How to establish and maintain a streak?
Your streak is measured by the number of repeated MLB games the players you select are credited with a hit during the Contest Period.
Unless the Mulligan feature applies (as set forth in the Mulligan Feature above), your streak will automatically end and you must start to build your streak again from zero if you select a player for any MLB game who does not get a hit and has at least (i) one official at bat, or (ii) one sacrifice fly during the MLB game for which you selected him.
Participants can make two selections during any Game Day by making a "Double Down Pick. Herein, participant can select a second player to increase their streak by two in one Game Day.
In case your selected player is scheduled to play in a double-header on any given Game Day, you must select the exact MLB game for which your pick will apply for that Game Day. Also note that your MLB player selection will automatically apply for the first game of the double-header unless you manually change your MLB game selection
