2010 CHILDREN’S DREAM TEAM BASEBALL
at
Stow-Munroe Falls Public Library

Pick your team – manage your team !!

Family Play
Players grade 6 and under are eligible to play. Parents and other adults are welcome to help, but please, no adults without children. THE GOAL IS TO HAVE FUN.

PLAYER ELIGIBILITY
Your team of 12 players must be chosen from the players in this packet (a few exceptions are noted below for designated hitters and players who play more than one position). Check off the players you want on your team using the criteria in this packet and paragraph. Pick a player for each position (8 position players) and 4 pitchers (3 starting pitchers and one relief pitcher). In order to make this more fun, you may select a designated hitter (DH) and pick a position not on the list. I am thinking of Travis Hafner of the Indians and David Ortiz of the Red Sox. If you pick one of these players, you must assign him a position. Travis Hafner and David Ortiz have both played first base.

SCORING
BATTER POINTS = RUNS + RBI – HR – ERRORS
PITCHER POINTS = 7 POINTS FOR EACH WIN – 2 POINTS FOR EACH LOSS
RELIEF PITCHERS = 3 POINTS FOR EACH SAVE + 7 POINTS FOR EACH WIN – 2 POINTS FOR EACH LOSS

TEAM POINTS
Division standings will be determined by team points. TEAM POINTS = BATTER POINTS + PITCHER POINTS

LEAGUES
We will try and have 4 or 5 teams make up a division.

STATISTICS USED
