It’s Fantasy Football season in baseball! Diamondbacks and their players love it!
Now, you all might know that when I’m not writing about the Diamondbacks, I am fantasy football analyst for Fantasy Data and Dynasty Nerds. So I absolutely love fantasy football. So do MLB players! However, I’ll limit the football talk as this is not Raising Zona. This is the Diamondbacks site and we’ll center this on them.
This year, like years past, Diamondbacks players’ Nick Ahmed and Luke Weaver are raising money for charity by organizing fantasy football leagues with fans! If you play fantasy football, there’s no way you wouldn’t want to play with MLB players!
This is awesome as not only do you get to actually play with players that you have supported for years, but you’re helping people in need! This organization was founded by Adam Wainwright of the St. Louis Cardinals in roughly 2013 or so. It’s gained more and more steam every year.
The charities that Nick Ahmed and Luke Weaver are supporting are Compassion International and Pittsburgh Kids Foundation respectively. The fantasy platform for these leagues is on RealTime Sports.
There’s still room to sign up and help give back while playing an awesome esport. There’s even prizes for the winners too. You could win a trip for 2 to an MLB Spring Training Game in 2022 with additional features. There’s many other prizes too. Registration includes a VIP pregame reception with the MLB players in your league. You then get to watch the game in a party suite!
