How It Works (this is the recommended format, but configurable)

  • The object of the game is to have the roster with the most home runs.
  • Everyone picks a team of current MLB players that makes up their team total number of home runs during the regular season.
  • As the admin of the pool, you create a picksheet for your players to choose from. We provide a spreadsheet below with a 5 tier format if you do not want to customize. This is also the default setup of your picksheet if you build it online.
  • Whatever roster has the most home runs collectively at the end of the MLB Season Wins.
  • You can optionally award the roster each month, week, or day that had the most home runs for that time period.
  • In order to account for possible injuries, you have the option to exclude the poorest home run sluggers on everyone’s rosters. For example, you could exclude the bottom 5 if you are choosing 14 total players as mentioned above. This helps eliminate the need for lineup maintenance throughout the season.
  • Our website updates as home runs are hit each day.

Configuration Options

  • Picksheet Setup – choose how you want people to make their slugger selections. For example, choose any slugger you want or pick from groups of similarly ranked sluggers.  
  • # sluggers per player – how many sluggers does each person in your pool select at the beginning of the season
  • # sluggers to count – choose all sluggers count towards each team’s score, or only count the best sluggers from each roster. For example, if everyone chooses 6 sluggers total you can choose to only count the best 4.
  • Scoring Options
    • Total (default) – who has the best team of sluggers for the whole season
    • Daily – who has the best team of sluggers each day
    • Weekly – who has the best team of sluggers each week
    • Monthly – who has the best team of sluggers each month


Free for pools of 4 or less
$20 for the season if you pool has more than 4 entries.

  1. Hello.

    I was looking to set up a 2021 MLB Home Run pool but did not see that option on the website. Has this option been discontinued?


  2. The red Sox game the other night was canceled and game didn’t count so Betts and Martinez’s home runs didn’t count and they haven’t been adjusted on our site.

  3. Sean, the pool that we do, we have 15 teams that have 8 home run hitters apiece. We use the top 5 hr hitters in week 1, then the top 5 hr hitters from week 2, then combine the 2 week total for the 2 week total, then total all 13- (2 week totals) to have a final season total. Would you be able to do this type of format?

    • Hi Rick –

      You can track week by week but we don’t have a way to combine the totals from both weeks, unfortunately.

      • So, to be clear, you can give me the totals of each week separately week to week as the season goes on? And if I joined now, you could give us the numbers retroactively? Our week runs from Sunday thru Saturday

  4. Do you have the template in an a format where I can edit it like excel?

    • Hi Mike – You can use our online setup to add teams from your excel picksheets. The way our homeruns pools work is you collect the picks offline and then enter them and we track homeruns all season. Hope that explains. — Sean

  5. The pool I run has awards for most home runs each month as well as a total for the whole season. Will we be able to track both?

  6. Richard Tepedino says:

    The league I have run the past 4 years allows to have a substitution made June 1, All Star Break and Sept 1. Have you made it possible to keep one players totals for a date then add a new player going forward? If so count me in

  7. Kyle O'Connell says:

    Our league allows for two substitutions throughout the year. If a player were to get hurt, we can drop him and add another player and his home runs count from that day forward. Are you able to swap players and only count home runs from the time that they were active on your team?

    • Hi Kyle- With our Home runs format we only track home runs for the total season, not a custom date range like your format. We will add it to the request list for future development.

      Thanks for reaching out!

  8. Hi Sean, can we manipulate the players wherein we can say – for example – pick any 10 players, but their total home runs cannot exceed 175? In that case, two (or more) players could be selected from Groups 1 and 2? Thanks!!

    • Hi Lisa – For our Home Runs Pools, the picks are managed offline, so you are free to enforce any restrictions you like. Then you have to enter everyone’s picks in our system so that the home runs will track automatically as home runs are hit each day. Every day throughout the season we update the standings many times each day.

      Hope that clarifies! – Sean

  9. we hav started a homerun pool and devin mesoraco is not on the player list is there a way we can add him .. might be spelled incorrectly as there is a deven morrero there who is not a mlb player thank you

  10. Lisa Conway says:

    If a player is traded, does your tracking reset the player to zero home runs?

    • Hey Lisa – Our system isn’t really designed to handle trades. It is more of a pick a team once and then root for them all season. As a pool admin, you can switch the players that each pool entrant has on their team, but all entrants will receive the home run total for the whole season for all sluggers currently assigned to their team. Hope that helps! Let me know if you have questions. Thanks – Sean

  11. Will you be doing MLB playoff pools? Home run or bracket style.

    • Hi Sam – We don’t have anything set in stone currently, but may offer a weighted bracket format where you assign each team a weight and get that number of points for each win they get.

      Did you have a specific format you were hoping for?
