The Definitive Fictional Baseball Player All-Stars

In honor of the return on Major League Baseball, here is the definitive full 25-man roster of fictional baseball All-Stars. A few notes: there were very few second basemen that could qualify, so I had to go with a softball player. There are also a glut of catchers out there and at least two big ones were left off. Benny "the Jet" Rodriguez's position was never stated at the end of The Sandlot, so I took the liberty to play pretty fast and loose with his position based on my needs.

  1. The guidelines of Basketball, fortunately, are pretty straightforward. But, for younger participants, some principles could be quickly forgotten. The three-second concept approaching just how long an unpleasant participant could be in the important thing before cleaning out is a great example.
