AVOLANCHE 2016 SDSL CHAMPIONS
Updated February 24, 2017
One of the founding teams with the Tuggers Nuts. A very strong franchise with now 6 banners hanging from the rafters. The 2016 season finally brought the Avolanche back to the SDSL title after a 9 year hiatus. The Avolanche have built their team with the youth of Corey Seager coupled with the established star presence of Jake Arrieta, Miguel Cabrera and David Ortiz and will hope to again come together to defend their SDSL championship in 2017.

the 2016 season gets underway, the 2015 SDSL CHAMPION ENFORCERS look to
continue their incredible streak of consecutive playoff appearances to
19 years in a row including nine appearances in the finals and four
championship banners since 2000. The Enforcers have been previously
dubbed the league OVERACHIEVERS by there competition, however that
garbage talk was put to rest in 2015 with what has to
be considered the most dominant season for a team in SDSL history. The
Enforcers start the 2016 season again with a very strong team led by
Stanton, Goldschmidt, Machado, McCutchen and the surprise resurgence of
Justin Verlander. Through crafty wheeling
and dealing, management has managed to stock the team with excellent
young talent and all-star veterans in the hopes of a repeat
Teams will be wise to not overlook the Enforcers as they
will once again look to crush their way to the championship
with big bats and superior defence……

BigMac’s drafted a team from scratch in 1994 after the original league folded. A very shrewd trader Alec often takes quite a while to make a trade, but very rarely makes a bad one. As a result, the BigMac’s have celebrated two championships since 2009. The BigMacs look to be strong in the years to come with a roster stocked with young stars.

The Junkyard Dogs came into existence in 1998 replacing the Alberta Prairie Dogs. Taking over a depleted roster, they quickly built a power house team within a year. Despite the still strange league decision to "start over" and have an auction the following year, management still managed to build a powerful team which went on to win back to back championships in 2003 and 2004.

208's had another successful season in 2015. The team once again exceeded expectations in the standings, and played "extra baseball at the cottage" for the 12th time in a row. But what most fans are excited about is the rise of youngsters Kris Bryant and Carlos Correa. With a combined total of ZERO career strat games played, these guys are already being labelled as untouchable franchise players and potential future SDSL hall of famers! The roster will continue to turn over in 2016 and management will continue to bring in future young stars. But with young sluggers on the team who are ready to compete now, the 208s should challenge for the post-season yet again.
Team built around: Sonny Gray, Kris Bryant, and Carlos Correa.

Five years after joining the SDSL, WIB finally made it to the top of the heap and won the title in 2014. After an extra-innings, game 7 loss in the championship in 2012, WIB was discouraged, but continued to build a winner and in 2014 finally sealed the deal. Although "Crazy Jason" makes an occasional appearance, a strong and young core should keep the WIB manager smiling well into the future. With the Tugnutt's retirement, there will be a little more legwork for trades, but the coming years look promising. If you are trying to find WIB in the standings in 2015, you're advised to look up.
Team built around Tulo, Stephen Strasburg and Bryce Harper

The Catalyst will be sporting a new look in 2016. Out with
the old and in with the new. Kershaw and King Felix are gone and the new power
arms are Jacob deGrom, Corey Kluber, and Mad Max Scherzer have arrived. In 2015
the Catalyst anticipated being contenders, but the team did not show up and a
quick reload was in order. The team saw the emergence of the 5 tool player AJ
Pollock and local favorite Lucas Duda traded away for Blackmon and heavy
hitting Miguel Sano. The Catalyst are built around strong arms in the pen and
good starting pitching. The major questions are, will the old veteran adages
take the team to the next level. Will Ryan Zimmerman, Juan Uribe and Kendrys Morales
be enough to power the offense into the leagues top 5, or is another mediocre 8th
place spot on the horizon. Stay Tuned
Team stars are Aj Pollock and Jacob deGrom.

New ownership, new manager, new franchise: the Masterbatters look to continue what the Banana’s started. Already scrutinized for some trades, management is sticking to their guns, showing they aren’t afraid to make the big deal, and pay whatever it takes to acquire whomever they want. The batters will look to compete in 2013, but early predictions show they will need a WIB-like run to get far in the playoffs.
Team built around next year.
