Find the Best Fantasy Baseball 2018 Team
Basketball and football fantasy leagues have been popular for years. Baseball fantasy leagues have been around for years, but have only become large in the last 10 years. With so many statistics available to choose from, we’ll keep this simple with pitching and hitting categories. Here’s your all time retro high school fantasy baseball team.
10. Ricky Roberts (Marlow Central, OK): Scoring runs is huge part of fantasy baseball scoring, and in the 1996 season, Roberts scored a record 86 runs.
9. Darren Deadmond (Odin, IL): Not everyone can be a home run hitter. You need players on your retro high school fantasy baseball team that can get hits and get on base. Deadmond logged 88 hits in the 1986 season. Not sound like much? Remember high school team only play around 25-30 games. That’s close to 3 or 4 hits per game.
8. Wade Miller (Skipperville G.W. Long, AL): It’s home run time! Here’s your big bat in your lineup. Miller hit 30 home runs in the 2000 season.
7. Nick Trapp (Woodstock Marian, IL): So who’s going to drive in all your runs? How about Trapp, who drove in an amazing 104 runs in the 2004 season.
6. Preston Wilson (Bamberg Bamberg-Ehrhardt, SC): Get first three batters on base to load them up, then call in Wilson, who hit a record 7 grand slams in the 1992 season.
5. Mike Breyman (Attica Seneca East, OH)” Batting average is always part of the fantasy baseball equation. Nobody hit for a higher average than Breyman, who hit .810 in the 2000 season.
4. Vicente Rosario (New York George Washington High, NY): What do you do when you get on base? Steal as many bases as you can! In 1996, Rosario stole 96 bases, which would easily win your stolen base category.
3. Paul Salters Jr. (Mooreville, MS): Need an ace pitcher to win as many games as possible? Try Salters Jr., who won 25 games pitching in 1985.
2. Josh Cribb (Lake View, SC): Several high school pitchers have finished a season with a 0.00 ERA. We’ll take Cribb, who most recently did this unbelievable feat in 2001.
1. Randolph Salters (Mooreville, MS): Strikeouts are to pitchers, what home runs are to hitters. We’ll keep the pitching in the Salters family with this one. Randolph racked up 366 strikeouts in the tremendous Salters family season of 1985.
It’s fun to imagine what the retro high school fantasy baseball stats would look like in an actual league. With so many strikeouts, hits, and home runs over a short schedule, I’m sure the stats would jump off the page!
