How to Play the Bowman Prospect Challenge

Bowman Prospect Challenge

  • When you pull a code card, log in to the game's official site at topps.com/BowmanGame.
  • Enter the unique code found on the card.
  • Your code will unlock four different players. Pick one.
  • A "roster" is full with eight players. You can have more on the bench.
  • Rosters can be changed at the start of each month.

Bowman Prospect Challenge Scoring

The Bowman Prospect Challenge uses a system called NumberFire to keep track of scoring.

Pitchers and hitters are weighed differently in the system. The main criteria for pitchers are strikeouts and walks. For hitters, hits, home runs, slugging percentage and strikeouts are the biggest consideration.

As a player progresses through the minors, those playing at higher levels earn more points. Bonus points are also given when someone is promoted.
