Oatka Quackers

Key Additions: I. Hall, A. Hall, T. Taylor

Key Losses:  M. Condame, C. Hammond,  D. McGuire.

The 3-time World Series Champion Oatka Quackers look to return to their winning ways this season, but will have to do so with some new faces.  Manager Regis Pollard was only able to secure 1B Jordan Shelton from the roster a year ago.  Despite only returning Pollard and Shelton, the tandem produced 97 of the teams 158 RBIs in 2014.  

The biggest newcomer to the clubhouse this season is Tommy Taylor.  He will fill in the role that Cody Hammond left behind and be the #2 pitcher behind Pollard. He only pitched in one game last season but still managed to record 13 strikeouts.  The Quackers also picked up both Ian Hall and Alex Hall.  The Hall twins provide a lot of speed to the lineup and will replace Matt Condame and Darren McGuire.  Ian will be the #3 pitcher for the team, but has not appeared in a game since the 2013 season.  In 2013, he recorded 56 strikeouts in his 55 innings.

The Quackers are still the team to beat, but with a lot of changes this offseason, the team will need to prove itself yet again.

Projected Record: 8-4

Way Too Early Power Ranking: #4

Preseason Power Ranking : #1
