Cantor launches two daily fantasy baseball leagues

Apr 1, 2013 10:24 AM

Cantor Data Services, a subsidiary of Cantor Fitzgerald, today announced the launch of two daily fantasy baseball leagues – Cantor 6 and Cantor Top Tier for MLB.  Registered users can enjoy a range of interactive features available at the website, including public chat sessions, managed friendship lists, leaderboards and scoreboards. 

“We are pleased to introduce two daily fantasy baseball leagues that offer fantasy enthusiasts the latest in flexible play and entertainment,” said Matthew Holt, vice president of Fantasy Games. “The launch of Cantor 6 and Cantor Top Tier for MLB reaffirms our commitment to providing a revolutionary, social fantasy sports platform that combines fair play with competitive balance.”

Playing Cantor 6, a daily league, participants can select a team of six players consisting of one pitcher, two outfielders and three infielders. A fantasy line will be calculated for the two opposing rosters. The fantasy scores of all users will be added up and the fantasy line applied to the underdog’s roster to determine the winner.

Also, a daily league, Cantor Top Tier for MLB allows participants to select from tiers, rather than through a fantasy line.  Tiers of baseball players are grouped by a similar fantasy value and participants select three pitchers, one reliever, three outfielders and three infielders, one player from each tier, to form their fantasy team. 

When playing Cantor 6 and Cantor Top Tier for MLB, participants can monitor their fantasy points-based performance on a side-by-side live scoreboard after the first game begins. They can draft as many rosters and enter them in as many leagues as they would like.  

There are also a number of free leagues available for those who might be interested in learning more and gaining experience before entering a pay league.

Cantor advises that those competing in a pay league must be at least 18 years old and reside in one of the following states: Alabama, Alaska, California, District of Columbia, Georgia, Hawaii, Idaho, Indiana, Maine, Mississippi, Missouri, Nevada, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York, North Carolina, North Dakota, Oklahoma, Oregon, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, Utah, Virginia, West Virginia, Wisconsin and Wyoming.
