NPBL News: First-Year Player Draft
Tuesday, March 1st, 2078
For the newcomer to professional baseball, today's amateur draft is a rite of passage. Every young player in the country is filtered through the draft pool, assessed, reassessed, scrutinized and run through several mock drafts even before they get to the real thing. But on draft day, once you've been picked, you have a shot to do what so few men in history have done, become a NPBL ballplayer. Virginia, Louisiana, New Mexico, Illinois and North Carolina will have the first five picks. The top ten players, as rated by BNN, are:
1. Mike Warren, 18 year-old LHP out of high-school.
2. Logan Pearson, 21 year-old 2B out of college.
3. Rod Muller, 20 year-old LHP out of college.
4. Chad Manning, 18 year-old LHP out of high-school.
5. Steve Hull, 21 year-old CF out of college.
6. David Hernández, 18 year-old LHP out of high-school.
7. Donald Frye, 18 year-old CF out of high-school.
8. Jorge Guzmán, 22 year-old SS out of college.
9. Steve Sánchez, 21 year-old RHP out of college.
10. Alfonso Mejía, 19 year-old 2B out of high-school.
NPBL News: Draft Pool Revealed
Monday, February 14th, 2078
The biggest anxiety for 2078 new young players is getting drafted. For the young man with something to prove, simple entrance into the draft does not guarantee a big league contract. Some will suffer the excruciating torment of having to stand by as their competitors get picked before them, hoping that they get a slim chance to prove their skills anywhere. At any rate, teams now have 15 days to scout the draft pool before the draft is held.
The Transactions page also gets a new section dedicated to the draft pool, which will be available for 15 days prior to the draft.
The top players available (in no particular order) seem to be:
1. Logan Pearson, 21 year-old 2B out of college.
2. Donald Frye, 18 year-old CF out of high-school.
3. Jason MacCrindle, 18 year-old RF out of high-school.
4. Steve Sánchez, 21 year-old RHP out of college.
5. Jorge Guzmán, 22 year-old SS out of college.
6. Vincente Sarchua, 18 year-old LHP out of high-school.
7. Rod Muller, 20 year-old LHP out of college.
8. Bob Caldwell, 21 year-old RHP out of college.
9. Leo Fowler, 22 year-old RHP out of college.
10. David Hernández, 18 year-old LHP out of high-school.
You can find the draft pool in the league transactions screen (league menu).
Evans and Black Pitch in at Local Homeless Shelter
Monday, February 7th, 2078
It is always good to see local athletes use their popularity and status for the good of the community. Today, Glenn Evans and Paul Black pitched in at local homeless shelter, serving meals for hundreds of underprivileged citizens of Pennsylvania. "It's the least we can do", added Evans. "I don't do it because I'm a member of the Freedom, I do it because I care about the community. There's plenty of women and young children among these people, and giving them a hot meal uplifts me as well. Seeing the looks of appreciation on their faces makes it all worth it."
