How To Join Nitro Squares Contests For Baseball

Baseball Nitro Squares

At last, we have reached the last stage of the 2020 MLB season. Months ago, we were all uncertain whether we’re going to have a baseball season to watch (and bet on). Fast forward to today, we are having ourselves a must-watch baseball matchup in the World Series, with the storied and expensive franchise of the Los Angeles Dodgers going up against the Moneyballin’ Tampa Bay Rays.

Beginning this October, Nitrogen Sports will start offering baseball Nitro Squares contests — not just in the MLB but possible in other baseball leagues as well. In this Nitrogen Sports Blog, we’ll give you a lowdown of how baseball squares work.
 

Baseball Nitro Squares Contests

 
Baseball and Nitro Squares contests are two things that are meant for each other. Both heavily involves numbers, but are so easy to appreciate and understand. For baseball Nitro Squares, the only stats you need to know are hits and runs, which are among the most basic numbers in baseball.

But if you’re just new to baseball, here are quick definitions of a hit and a run, per MLB.com.
 

Hit

 
“A hit occurs when a batter strikes the baseball into fair territory and reaches base without doing so via an error or a fielder’s choice. There are four types of hits in baseball: singles, doubles, triples and home runs.”
 

Run

 
“A player is awarded a run if he crosses the plate to score his team a run. ”

Now that you know the relevant baseball stats for this type of Nitro Squares contest, let us take you to a walkthrough of the rules and guidelines for baseball squares.

Nitro Squares Rules for Baseball

 

  • The winning square will be the last digits of the final combined total of runs scored and hits of each team involved in a particular game.
  • The result of the featured game does not have any bearing in the declaration of the winning square. The sole basis for determining the winning square is the total number of runs and hits made by each team in the featured game.
  • The result of the featured matchup does not have any bearing in the declaration of the winning square. The sole basis for determining the winning square is the total number of runs and hits made by each team in the featured game.
  • The winning square is determined by the last digits of total run and hits by each team in a featured game. The first digit of a winning square is determined by the last digit of the higher total of runs plus hits by a team. The last digit of the winning square is determined by the last digit of the lower total of runs plus hits by a team.
  • Example: The final score in a Los Angeles Dodgers vs. San Francisco Giants game is Giants 8, Dodgers 7, with San Francisco scoring 8 (eight) runs on 10 hits and Los Angeles scoring seven (7) runs on 12 hits. The winning combination for this particular game/example would be 9-8, since the Dodgers had the highest total of hits and runs with 19 while the Giants have the fewest total of hits and runs with 18. This also means that all entries under 9-8 will be declared winners.
  • All final total of runs scored and hits will be based on official league sites (e.g. MLB.com, NBA.com, NFL.com, etc).
  • In some cases, we’ll feature Nitro Squares that will only be limited to parts of a game or a series (e.g. in the NBA, the first half scores only; in Esports, Map 1 only, etc.). This will be explicitly stated in each matchup page.
