HQ Titles and Awards

Ron Shandler and the Baseball HQ writers are regular invitees to industry experts leagues. Their subscribers also get occasional "Regular Guy" invites as well as participate in national competitions. Baseball HQ has helped them bring home 44 first place titles and national championships, plus another 50 second and third place finishes, since 1997.

It's one thing to tout your prognosticating prowess, but quite another to display as consistent a track record of success when putting that expertise into practice. No other fantasy information service comes remotely close.

Baseball HQ's writers have become feared competitors in national experts league play. Our subscribers have built a similar reputation. You can too!
