MLB recently began a 32-team tournament dubbed the ‘MLB Dream Bracket’. All-time rosters were created for each of the 30 teams, as well as for Negro League players and current players 25 years old and younger. Each matchup is a simulated best-of-seven series. The simulations are run using Out of the Park Sports. You can also join in for free by making a variety of predictions at DraftKings.com.
