Overwhelmed by all the information?  Not sure what you're supposed to be doing?  Confused about the draft - or setting a lineup - or player contracts and salaries?


Benchwarmer Baseball is mostly a one-person operation, but there are some avenues to get the information you need, other than sending an email to Jon.  See the information below as a guide to get you going ---

Personal Help

Did you get referred to Benchwarmer by a friend or family member?  That might be an easy source of information, particularly if they've already played the game in past seasons.


BWB also has a chat room that's probably not used much - but you might be able to convince someone to join you there for some Q&A.

The Rules

This should probably be your first stop if you haven't already checked it out.  You can visit the online rules pages for more information - or download the pdf version and print/browse at your convenience.  The current pdf file is the 2008 version, but there are no significant changes in 2009.

The FAQs

Your question might not be unique.  Try looking at our Frequently Asked Questions.

The Blogs

There are some official Benchwarmer Baseball Blogs.  Here you'll find discussions about rules, strategies, problems on the web sites, and more.


As a member of your league, you have a couple of options to contact fellow league owners.  On the league home page is a link to send a broadcast message out to the entire league.  If you visit team pages, you'll find a link to send a message to that team.  You might find that those are options for getting information.


Beyond that, every league has a League Administrator.  These volunteers are experienced Benchwarmer veterans and they may be able to help you out with strategy, how-tos, and other various questions you might have.  Send him a message.


Finally (and not necessarily lastly), feel free to contact Jon Swanson, the league owner/webmaster.  Note: Currently the league admins are not able to make post-deadline changes to your transactions or lineups, or modify or check anything with the functioning of the web site.  For any of those types of questions, ask Jon directly.  If you're hitting error messages on the site that don't seem right, it helps to copy and paste the specific message you see and explain what you were trying to do in your message to him.

Scoring and Strategy Help

Many of the links above (particularly the blogs) will help you out with suggestions and tips about building your Benchwarmer Baseball roster and setting your lineup and starting rotation.  In addition, you'll find general baseball and fantasy baseball information listed on our Links & Blogs page.  It's not a comprehensive list, but includes useful links and connections to our fantasy baseball experts participating in our Experts League.


New in 2009, we're also building up a mechanism on the site to allow you to play with various batting orders and pitching performances and view a sample BWB score.  Currently, we're only set up to show the offensive side, but you can play around with the order and see how it affects your potential score.


These tips were written in 2001 or 2002 -- some things are a bit out of date (and there are some rule changes), but they can provide you some guidance even before we get a chance to update them:


Good luck!
