Nominate Players for Gaslamp Ball's All Fictional All-Star Team

New, 129 comments

Okay I came up with this idea last night while watching the absolutely terrible movie For the Love the Game.  It was on cable and I'd never seen it so I thought I'd take it in.  I ended up fast forwarding through all the non-baseball related stuff, the dramatic pauses and most of the baseball related stuff.  The movie went by really quick.

Here's the idea, we are going to create the first All Fictional All-Star team in time for the real All-Star game.  What we need you to do is nominate fictional characters for each position and then vote on said nominations in later polls.  We will not be accepting nominations of cartoon or comic characters, such as Charlie Brown, etc.

So I'll start with some nominations, but please nominate your own.  If you like another readers nomination, then please recommend it.  When you nominate please link the character name in case others don't know them.

Nominations:

Pitchers: Billy Chapel, Ebby Calvin 'Nuke' LaLooshPitcher Youngberry, Rick 'Wild Thing' Vaughn, Prof. Vernon K. Simpson, Amanda Whurlitzer, Steve Nebraska, Henry Rowengartner, Jack 'Deuce' Cooper, Mel Clark, Miles Pennfield II, Ryan Dunne
