LOS ANGELES, CA--(Marketwire - October 16, 2007) - RotoHog.com, the premier fantasy sports Web site, today named Jeff Suber as 2007's Global Champion of RotoHog's Fantasy Baseball challenge. The Dallas-area resident topped the leader board with more than 21,299.58 points, 218.56 ahead of his nearest competitor. As the winner, Suber receives RotoHog's coveted $100,000 grand prize, to be awarded at a gala dinner planned for October 19 in beautiful Marina Del Rey. In addition to being named RotoHog's $100,000 winner, Jeff also assumes all the recognition and bragging rights associated with his victory as the Global Fantasy Baseball Champion. At least until next year.

"We are thrilled to declare Jeff our Global Fantasy Baseball Champion for this season, during which we awarded more than $200,000 in prizes," said David Wu, CEO of RotoHog.com. "Both new and veteran players are looking for a fantasy league that challenges their sports management skills. RotoHog is pure adrenaline where skill rules the day. Congratulations to Jeff for a well deserved victory."

With the start of the 2007 MLB season, RotoHog.com unveiled the fantasy sports site which combines all the popular characteristics of online fantasy sports with a unique trading floor that gives users total control over managing their rosters. In addition to the grand prize of $100,000, participating team managers had a chance to win prizes every week during the season.

"I'm thrilled to be RotoHog's Global Champion! This has been a great experience. This game is so much better than old-school fantasy sports where trading for a good player is often impossible or people complain about cheat trades," said Jeff Suber, first winner of RotoHog's Fantasy Baseball League. "The keys to my success were the trading floor, using it to buy and sell players in real-time, depending on their performance and relying heavily on my stable of relief pitchers throughout the season."
