FanDuel, which has been since 2009, is the pioneer of the of the daily fantasy sports format that has become all the rage in recent years. The company has paid out in excess of $300 million in winnings to date and hands out up to $6 million on a weekly basis -- all for being the winner in what Tech Crunch has referred to as a "one-night stand" in fantasy sports.

I was given some money to play around with when this partnership was getting underway, and I wound up finishing in ninth place among all SB Nation MLB site managers. If a stupid idiot like me can place that well, a lot of you can probably win the whole damn thing (disclosure: that's, just, like, my opinion, man; there's no guarantee you will win).

Here's a quick instructional video on how to play:

So now you want to play, yeah? Well, lucky for you, FanDuel is hosting a one-day $18,000 Fantasy Baseball league for tonight's MLB games. It's $2 to join and first prize is $2,000. Here's the FanDuel link -- jump in now!
