Real-life MLB team you are a fan of: Colorado Rockies

Year you first started playing Strat: 2016

Year you first joined the I-75 League: 2016

How you first were introduced to Strat: Family members have been playing for many years, so after I graduated from college there were a few openings in the league which was a perfect chance for me to join the league.

Origin of your team name: I am a huge fan of the TV show Futurama so I wanted my team name to relate to that. The city the show is based in in the year 3000 is New New York, which was built on top of Old New York (current day New York City). The Hypnotoad is more of an obscure reference in the show, but it is basically exactly what it sounds like, a toad that is able to hypnotize those around it. In Futurama, the Hypnotoad has its own show “Everybody Loves Hypnotoad” that is just an image of the Hypnotoad hypnotizing everybody. There are also some other references to the Hypnotoad here and there throughout the series.

Any Strat involvement outside the I-75 League? Starting in 2017, our family started a small casual league with a few other friends simply drafting two existing MLB teams from the previous season and then putting together a roster from those teams.

One thing you would do to improve the league: Nothing comes to mind at the moment. I think the way we have to enact rule changes works pretty well and
is pretty effective in staying updated with what rules will be helpful for the league.

How you can be reached electronically: The best way to reach me is by email (jasonrenbarger@gmail.com). I do have Skype (jason.renbarger) but I am not normally logged in and don’t check it often.

How to follow you: I don’t really do any sort of social media stuff right now.

Your chance to self-promote: Was able to win my division with the second-best record in the league and make it into Game 7 of the semifinals of the playoffs in my first season.
