      Every team has a representative, and in true All-Star style, I had to snub a few guys to do it!

        --Scott, you've got Al Smith as the Gambler's lne rep, but also Elston Howard who also plays for the Gamblers and makes it on merit. I've got Battey rather than Cededa off the Quakers. Catcher is a very deep field this season though. I assumed my own Johnny Romano would battle for a spot, but once I looked at the other rosters he wasn't quite up to a few other guys. I wasn't as concerned with representing the CMed doormats. Only Lumpe got my vote from those 3 teams.

          Mark - I can vote for the all star team based only on the top 10, but it would be better to give everyone's roster with stats a once over. Will you be posting team stats on the other thread for each team, so I could look at everyone's players before I vote, or should I just go ahead and use the top 10 charts? You and Scott have all the rosters, I believe, because you both have the game, but the rest of us don't have up to date team stats to review. Or maybe I'm being too picky here, not sure.
          You see, you spend a good deal of your life gripping a baseball and in the end it turns out that it was the other way around all the time. J. Bouton

            --I thought I posted up to date team rosters as well as leaderboards in the first post of this thread. Looks like I got the right pitching file, but the batting was team totals rather than individuals. I'll get the correct file up in the next post (why or why can't attachments be edited?).

                Legends 1961 All Star Ballot

                I considered going with only one secondbaseman (a very weak position) so I could go with eight outfielders, but in a very tough decision I dropped Ron Fairly and kept Hank Aaron - and Aaron came this close" " to getting dropped. I also have no leftfielders, at least as the game sees them. However, I figure the game must do something strange for outfield positions, since one team had no leftfielder, and another had one leftfielder - with 150 or so AB.

                Catchers: Carl Sawatski, Johnny Blanchard (not a homer vote; has second highest OPS). Only concern about Sawatski is low number of AB.
                First Base: Willie McCovey, Norm Cash, Jim Gentile
                Second Base: Jim Gilliam, Jerry Lumpe (the only doormat player I found I could add in good conscience)
                Third Base: Ed Mathews, Ken Boyer
                Shortstop: Leo Cardenas, Woodie Held
                Left Field: Duke Snider, Hank Aaron
                Center Field: Willie Mays, Mickey Mantle
                Right Field: Roberto Clemente, Frank Robinson, Roger Maris

                Starting Pitchers: Frank Lary, Bob Friend, Sandy Koufax, Camilo Pascual, Whitey Ford, Bill Stafford, Dick Hall, Don Lee
                Relievers: Wes Stock, Tom Morgan, Barney Schultz, Frank Funk

                  --To clarify, the position listed for each player is where they played the most in real life. That won't be changed in the program even if they play 162 at a different position. For example, Al Kaline was the Tigers RFer with only a few appearances in LF. He is the Diablos regular LFer (with Clemente in RF). Feel free to move outfielders to the opposite corner for this vote.
                  --Only one day left in the voting. We'll be keeping career records for this league and this team will be saved for posterity. Please contribute your vote.

                      "It was like coming this close to your dreams and then watching them brush past you like a stranger in a crowd. At the time you don't think much of it; you know, we just don't recognize the significant moments of our lives while they're happening. Back then I thought, 'Well, there'll be other days.' I didn't realize that that was the only day." - Moonlight Graham

                              --The Knights proved to be the most popular team with All Star voters, placing 9 players on the squad.

                              --Secondbase was the most interesting position in the voting. Jerry Lumpe made the first team - even though nobody voted for him as the best (he was the backup selection on every ballot).
