Selecting Your Players

Each day on which a regular season Yankees game is played during the Contest Period (each, a "Game Day"), you must select one (1) player from a list displayed on Yesnetwork.com of Yankees players who are on the Yankees' active roster on that Game Day (the "Active Players List"). The Active Players List may change as a result of injury or other roster changes, so be alert. You may select any player from the Active Players List, including any player you have previously chosen. You will have until five (5) minutes prior to the start of the first Yankees game being played on that Game Day to make your player selection for that Game Day, after which you may not submit a player or change your selection; however, you can make your daily player selection 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. MLBAM'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 player(s) you select are credited with a hit during the Contest Period.

Your streak will automatically end and you must start to build your streak again from zero under any of the following scenarios:

1. If you select a player for any Game Day who does not get a hit and has at least (i) one (1) official at bat, or (ii) one (1) sacrifice fly during the Game Day for which you selected him, or

2. If you fail to select a player for any Game Day.

Your streak will NOT end under any of the following scenarios:

1. If a player you select does not play during the Game Day for which you selected him for any reason other than the Yankees not being scheduled to play.

2. If each of the selected player's plate appearances (one or more) result in a base on balls, hit batsman, defensive interference or obstruction or a sacrifice bunt; or

3. Except as set forth in the Suspended Games Section below, your streak will remain intact in the event of any cancelled or postponed MLB game.

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

Double-headers

In the event that a player you select plays in a double-header, your streak will only continue if the player gets at least one (1) hit in both games in which he plays that Game Day unless all the selected player's plate appearances (one or more) result in a base on balls, hit batsman, defensive interference or a sacrifice bunt. For the avoidance of doubt, in the event that a player you select gets at least one (1) hit in both games of a double-header, your streak will continue, but your streak will only increase by one (1) hit for that Game Day, and not two (2) hits. NOTE: Except as set forth in the Suspended Games section below, only hits officially scored as hits in 2012 MLB regular season games will be counted as valid hits in the Contest.

Suspended Games

The following rules shall apply in the event any 2012 MLB game(s) is officially suspended during the Contest Period (each, a "Suspended Game"):

1. Only hits, at bats and sacrifice flies that are officially scored as hits, at bats and sacrifice flies in the portion of the game that was played prior to the point of suspension of such Suspended Game shall count as hits for purposes of this Contest provided either of the following conditions apply at the time such game(s) is suspended:

a. The MLB Club that is trailing in the portion of the game that was suspended (i) has made fifteen (15) or more outs in the game, and/or (ii) has completed all of its at-bats for five (5) innings; or

b. The home MLB Club (i) has made fifteen (15) or more outs, (ii) has completed all of its at-bats for five (5) innings, and/or (iii) has tied the game in the bottom of the fifth inning.

Example: A participant with a streak of eleven (11) selects Mark Gardener to hit on the May 6th game that is suspended in the 7th inning. Gardener goes 1-for-2 in the portion of the game that was played on May 6th. The participant's streak would increase to twelve (12).

2. Any hits, at bats or sacrifice flies officially scored as hits, at bats and sacrifice flies in the portion of the game that was played prior to the point of suspension of such Suspended Game will NOT count as valid hits for purposes of this Contest provided either of the following conditions apply at the time such game(s) is suspended:

a. The MLB Club which is trailing has NOT (i) made fifteen (15) or more outs in the game, and/or (ii) completed all of its at-bats for five (5) innings; or

b. An MLB game is tied and the visiting MLB Club has NOT (i) made fifteen (15) outs or more in the game, or (ii) completed all of its at-bats for five (5) or more innings.

Under any of these circumstances, for purposes of this Contest, your streak will not end.

Example: A participant with a streak of eleven (11) selects Mark Gardener to hit on the May 6th game that is suspended in the 3rd inning. Gardener goes 1-for-2 in the portion of the game that was played on May 6th. The participant's streak would remain at eleven (11).

3. For any Suspended Game, any hits, at bats or sacrifice flies officially scored as hits, at bats and sacrifice flies during the resumption the Suspended Game will NOT count as valid hits, at bats or sacrifice flies for purposes of this Contest.

Example: A participant with a streak of eleven (11) selects Mark Gardener to hit on the May 6th game that is suspended after the 7th inning. Gardener goes 0-for-2 in the portion of the game that was played on May 6th. If the Suspended Game resumes on May 7th and Gardener hits a single in the 9th inning of that portion of the game, that single will not count as a valid hit for purposes of this Contest.

Stat Corrections

For purposes of the Contest, hit totals will not be updated to reflect any official MLB statistics changes or corrections that occur after the completion of the applicable game. Accordingly, any subsequent official MLB statistics changes will not result in recalculating any streaks in the Contest. By way of example only, in the event there is an official MLB scoring correction for a game played on Wednesday, July 18 that changes an error to a hit for a player you selected for that game, and the official MLB statistics change was made on Thursday, July 19 (i.e., one (1) calendar day after the July 18 game was completed), the scoring change would NOT be reflected in your hit streak.
