2010 MLB.com Postseason Survivor -- How to Play

Selecting Your Teams

Each day on which an MLB postseason game is played during the Contest Period (each a "Game Day"), you must select one (1) team from a list displayed on MLB.com of all MLB teams that are participating in MLB postseason games on that Game Day. If you fail to select a team for any Game Day, your streak will end and you will be eliminated from the Contest. The list of available teams may change as a result of scheduling or other changes, so be alert. You may select any team from the list of all MLB teams that are participating in MLB postseason games on that Game Day, including a MLB team you have previously chosen. You will have until five (5) minutes prior to the start of the first MLB postseason game being played on that Game Day to make your team selection for that Game Day, after which you may not submit a team or change your selection; however, you can make your daily team selection(s) up to ten (10) calendar days prior to any Game Day and may change your selection until five (5) minutes prior to the start of the first MLB game being played on that Game Day. MLB.com's computer shall be the official clock of the Contest.

Establishing and Maintaining a Streak

All participants start at zero. Your streak is measured by the number of consecutive Game Day(s) the team(s) you select are credited with a win during the Contest Period.

If you select a team for any Game Day that does not win its game during the Game Day for which you selected it, your streak ends and you will be eliminated from the Contest.

If you fail to pick a team on any Game Day, your streak will end and you entry will be eliminated from the Contest. Your streak will remain intact in the event of any cancelled or postponed MLB game.

In the event any 2010 MLB postseason game(s) is suspended during the Contest Period (each, a "Supended Game") and not completed on the date on which any such game(s) was scheduled to begin, your streak will remain intact; however, any wins officially scored as wins in any portion of such Suspended Game(s) completed after the date on which any such game(s) was scheduled to begin will NOT count as valid wins for purposes of this Contest. By way of example only, a participant has a streak of three (3) as of October 9 and selects the Rays to defeat the Rangers on October 9th. If the October 9th Rays v. Rangers game is officially suspended, and play resumes on October 10th with the Rays winning 4-3, the participant's streak will NOT increase as a result of the Rays win; however the participant's streak will remain.

If you select a team for a future game and that game does not get played because that series has been completed and there are other games scheduled for that day that get played, your streak will end and you will be eliminated from the Contest.

The foregoing is based on official scoring as confirmed by MLBAM.

NOTE: Only wins officially scored as wins in 2010 MLB postseason games will be counted as valid wins in the Contest.
