Regis Pollard sits down with this year’s cover boy, Jordan Shelton of the Oatka Quackers.

Regis Pollard:
Good morning Jordan and thanks for being here. How excited are you to be playing wiffleball come this spring?

    Jordan Shelton
: Ecstatic.

RP: Aren’t we all. So, you’re back with the Quackers for another season. How many years do you plan on signing with them?

That’s’ a good question Reg. I actually was looking to sign with the Topless Tigers (Washburn Workhorses) this upcoming season, but their GM and I could not negotiate a suitable contract; therefore I re-signed with the Quackers. I think I’m just going to opt to another one year deal.

RP: Always playing the market. This past season you guys enjoyed a lot of success, how does your team look this year?

Well Regis, it’s been a long off season. I don’t know if anyone has put in the time getting some swings in and whatnot over the off season. I know I have. But I'm sure our team will look presentable come preseason.

Gotta love a player always ready to go. Now you had a huge post season. How do you plan to carry those numbers into this season?

    JS: Well, it is not easy to hit home runs. So, hopefully I can see the ball as well as I did last year, this year.

RP: So you’re on the cover of this year’s Sports Illustrated WWL Preview edition. How does that make you feel?

    JS: Very excited. I mean who wouldn’t be excited to be on the cover, but it is an honor.

Where do u expect the Quackers to be in the standings at the end of the season?

There is no reason why we shouldn't be ranked #1 again at the end of the season... that is if we go in and play our game.

Telling it how it is, Jordan Shelton ladies and gentleman. Want to leave us with one final thought?
