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.
Pretty good decade for Lackawanna League baseball. It saw a couple teams reach the state championship game and of the 46 District 2 titles up for grabs from 2010-2019, the Lackawanna League took home 25. So, who were the best players? With the Times-Tribune All-Region teams serving as the pool of players, let’s assemble the Lackawanna League’s All-Decade Team. We’ll break it down position-by-position over the next few days. Up next: the corner infielders.
