The results are in. After more than 4,600 votes — which is awesome, by the way; thanks for participating — we’re ready to unveil the Lackawanna League’s All-Decade baseball team.
Just a reminder: you voted for one catcher, five corner infielders, five middle infielders, five outfielders, five pitchers and three utility players. To get a little more equal representation, the final team is made up of three catchers, three utility players, 10 infielders (five corner, five middle), 10 outfielders and 10 pitchers. I’ll also show you how I voted, with some of my reasoning.
Each year, the members of the Times-Tribune sports department select the top 10 local sports stories of the year. It’s not an easy process. Typically, we comb through all of the sections of the year and note stories that stand out. Those are then narrowed down to 25 or so stories and then each member submits a ballot ranking them from 1-25.
Now, it’s your turn to pick the top local sports story. Not for 2019, but for the decade.
