Virtual Game How to build your dream team? This game called fantasy baseball, is played on the internet. This is a baseball game that allows you to be a coach, manager, or owner of a baseball team(although its not real). So each coach picks his/her players like a baseball draft. But the hook to this is you have to pay for your team(s). Prices range from $15- $90 dollars per team. You can also either participate anonymously or organize a group of friends or co-workers into a league of your own and pay a web service $300 to $400 a year to crunch your data. In most fantasy games owners compete for the players they want. Owners also compete in drafting players as well.
Virtual Game cont… So basically the whole point of this game is fun. And it is played as if you were an actual manager, owner, coach. The object of it I guess is to seem as real as possible. Although this game is quite pleasurable to baseball fans and others, it can be quite pricey. I believe that this game is mainly entertainment, like in the real pros “There’s no betting in baseball”.
