Play smart.

Play like a champion.

In Winning Fantasy Baseball, Larry Schechter discloses the secrets of his proven methods. Packed with commonsense, easy-to-use strategies for beginners through experienced players, Schechter supplies readers with a toolkit to achieve the most important thing in fantasy ball⎯winning!

Some have called Schechter one of the best fantasy baseball players in the world. He is a two-time winner of the CDM Sports national salary-cap challenge, having defeated 7,500 competitors in 2002 and 6,000 in 2005. He is also a six-time winner of the renowned Tout Wars experts league and a one-time winner of the USA Today-sponsored League of Alternative Baseball Reality (LABR).

Readers will learn directly from the champ everything they need to know about:
• how to project player stats;
• how to convert those stats into a specific value;
• strategy for snake drafts, and mono-league and mixed auctions;
• selecting teams using a salary cap;
• playing in keeper leagues;
• and performing in-season management.

Although the book is primarily about fantasy baseball, many of the concepts also apply to fantasy football and other fantasy sports.

Editorial Reviews

columnist for USA Today, author of the Baseball Forecaster and founder of BaseballHQ.com - Ron Shandler
"It's all about winning, and all Larry Schechter does is win. This book is an absolute, 100% must-read."
Senior Fantasy Writer, Baseball Prospectus - Mike Gianella
"Winning Fantasy Baseball is an instant contender for the definitive guide to fantasy strategy and tactics."
Yahoo! Sports - Andy Behrens
''Larry is almost certainly Earth's greatest fantasy player. His record of success in experts leagues is, at this point, ridiculous. Larry's age 50-54 seasons are the fantasy equivalent of Barry Bonds at age 35-39. We should be testing him, regularly...or at least that's what I thought before reading Winning Fantasy Baseball. It turns out Larry is just a master tactician. Anyone, of any skill level, will be a better player after reading this book.''
fantasy writer for RotoWire - Jason Collette
''Larry should be your E.F. Hutton for fantasy baseball advice; when he talks, you should listen. While other guys are out talking on radio, television, and social media, Larry is reviewing the numbers and putting the moves in place to win expert leagues and competitions year after year after year. Teddy Roosevelt was talking about Larry when he said to speak softly and carry a big stick. He has a totem pole's worth of league titles and the respect of everyone in the fantasy baseball industry.''
Fantasy Writer, Sports Illustrated - Eric Mack
"Winning Fantasy Baseball is a must-read for players on all levels."
