After a few weeks of weather delays, the sun came out today! The field was dry and an abundance of new and veteran players came out to let HDL officers know they “Want To Play!” Encouraged by the enthusiasm of all the players, the HDL officers and appointed team managers convened at the Rutledge Media Room to hold the 2017 player Draft.  Here are the results:

Balancing each team with a nucleus of experienced and capable pitchers and catchers was the hardest part.  Once that was established after some pretty intense negotiations, the rest of the draft went fairly smooth.  A total of 68 players were selected. For anyone who played in HDL last year, you might notice a few missing names.  A game schedule for next Sunday will be announced later tonight. Next week we will play some “exhibition” games to allow team manages to experiment with different player positions and explore individual opportunities.  Stay in-touch with teh Blog for on-going updates.
