Round Two Wrap UP

Sad face baseball

With the completion of Round Two, everyone has had two chances to qualify for Round Three and join those who finished in the top four positions in their Round One seasons. Sadly, not all of the hitters have made the grade. In fact, of our original 600, 488 will be part of Round Three.

If you have been following along, you already know most of the players who have moved ahead. There are two wild card hitters who are back from the dead; they would have been eliminated but instead, get to advance in order to have eight hitters in each season. They are Tommy Leach with 150 total victories and Ruben Sierra with 148.

Players Eliminated From the Playoff

We say goodbye to seventeen Hall-of-Famers and two of the invitees, Andre “Thunder” Thornton and “Super Joe” Charboneau.
