Following the 2005
Baseball Season, with 4 years under our belts, FSRU.com named our first inductee
into the FSRU Hall of Fame. From 2012 to 2015, due to team owner nominations and the performances listed on the page, FSRU inducted two team owners each year to the coveted HOF. Beginning in 2016, Hall of Fame inductees will be reduced to one again until required.
That standout team owner will be recognized for his overall success in FSRU.com
Fantasy Sports Leagues. Fantasy Sports accomplishments can be in one league (over
a number of years), multiple leagues (better), or multiple sports (even better).
While we know our team owners take great pride in getting their name on the League
Winners page. Induction into the Hall of Fame is our highest recognition. Those
who are inducted become site icons. An owner can only be inducted once, never again.
And that status can never be removed.
Nominees accomplishments will be considered in leagues they finished in 1st or 2nd
Place only. Other placements will not be factored into deciding the award winner.
Nominees will not be credited for finishing 3rd, nor will a 10th place finish detract
from their accomplishments.
We did not want to cheapen this award with a one time monetary payout. This is simply
more permanent than that. Instead, as a reward for excellence, we humbly award the
the winner a prize consistent with the finality of the award.
The winner will receive- on all teams, in all keeper leagues- a
$50 DISCOUNT FOR LIFE. This is a lifetime discount, and it is reserved
for the best of the best. Meet them now...
