In spirit of the Olympic Summer Games, we have created our own version of which country has produced the best baseball talent in Second City. The Games will consist of tracking four major stats (homeruns, stolen bases, strikeouts, saves).
These stats were chosen because they are simply counting stats, involve different skill sets, and are largely non-team dependent. The top 3 players in each stat at the end of the Olympics (Aug 24th midnight) will be awarded gold, silver, and bronze medals. There will also be overall country medals given to the top 3 countries in total medal count.
Here are the contenders or the Top 25 in each stat as of 8-10-08.
