Welcome | Say Hey Kids

The Wisconsin neckBeards are no longer. When the new General Manager joined the franchise this offseason, his first act of office was to overhaul the “neckBeards” mantra – can you blame him? And after careful consideration (for a total of about fifteen minutes) the new team name was born – the “Say Hey Kids.” A nickname for the great Willie Mays, of which the origin isn’t known for sure, but one legend has it, that when Willie Mays was a rookie he would consistently yell out in the clubhouse, “Say Who! Say What! Say Where! Say Hey!” which led a newspaper journalist to refer to him as the ‘Say Hey Kid’ in a front page article. No matter how he got the nickname, Willie Mays is one of the best players of all-time and an excellent person to name a team after – case-and-point, we just named a Hum Babe Dynasty Division after him and a whole league after his play referred to as “The Catch.” Accompanying the Willie Mays figure, making “The Catch” in the new “Say Hey Kids” Logo, is a color scheme that resembles Mays’ Giants’, and a bunting (or half circle banner) that would have been found on the outfield fence of Candlestick Park – which is not the park where Mays made ‘The Catch,’ (Polo Grounds), but the stadium that “Mays’ built” more or less when the New York Giants moved to San Francisco.

We welcome you, Say Hey Kids, to the Hum Babe Dynasty Fantasy Baseball League!

Next steps… prepare for your “New Manager Draft” – this is where you will be selecting your fifteen (15) Dynasty keepers from the two vacated rosters (Wisconsin neckBeards and Super Saiyan Shanobi). Between yourself and the other new Hum Babe General Manager, you will trade-off selecting from the available players via resources given to you by The Commissioner (Excel Spreadsheet, Drafting Instructions, etc.) Some things to note about our League Settings…

  1. This is a Points League (similar to typical Fantasy Football scoring), check out the League Constitution for specifics.
  2. Daily Lineup Setting – You can set your lineup for as many days in advanced as you’d like, just make sure you get your Starting Pitchers into the lineup when they are due to make a start.
  3. A Lesson Learned from the returning managers… Starting Pitchers can score roughly twenty (20) Fantasy Points in a good outing, whereas Hitters average four (4) or (5) points a game. So over the course of a week, they average about the same because hitters will play five or six games while a pitcher only throws one… but the trick is, the more Starting Pitchers you throw in a week, the more twenty (20) points outings you could get. We’ve actually revised our Rules within the Constitution, as a result of this, limiting the number of Free Agent Transactions teams can make over the course of a week.
