— Early this morning it was leaked that Commissioner Pollard phoned previous two time All-Star Michael Anderson, of the Caledonia-Mumford Red Raiders. The details of what was discussed are unknown, but it was reported that the two definitely talked about WWL. Could he really be the next Quacker?

Anderson, currently sharing his talents with the D’Youville Spartans, is a huge prospect for the Wiffleball world. His junior year at C-M he hit a monster .407 with 5 doubles and 2 triples, for a total of 24 hits. His senior year he cooled off, but still managed to hit over .350 with an on base percentage of +.400.

It is doubtful that Pollard is looking at Anderson to add to the Oatka’s roster. With Shelton already in the outfield it wouldn’t make sense, so look for Mike to sign with another team. But who? No other team has been officially added to the League so Anderson may have to wait, or he could be looking to start a team. The big lefty would make a good building block for any club and if he forms a team, look for the Tenant Tigerpops to be an optional name. It is too early to know where he will end up, but it looks like Anderson will be in the WWL come this spring.
