The first half decade of Dy-Nasty Baseball has wrapped up, with You Down With Prospecting? capturing their first league title, knocking off the defending champion Fighting Banana Slugs, 684.73-469.6. As the old saying goes, “to be the champ, you gotta beat the champ,” and that’s exactly what happened.
You Down With Prospecting? was led offensively in 2018 by shortstop Francisco Lindor and on the mound by starting pitcher Jacob DeGrom.
As of the conclusion of the league season, DeGrom was the highest overall scorer, amassing 1,341.6 total points. Not surprisingly, Mike Trout was the pace setter for hitters, racking up 1,166.5 points for the Fighting Banana Slugs despite missing some time on the disabled list.
Also qualifying for the playoffs in Dy-Nasty’s fifth anniversary season: former league champion Clown Question Bros. (2x) and Cheating Brew Crew, as well as the Capital City Impalers and Unicorns & Glitter.
The Pottstown Ironmen and Rocky Mtn Oysters just barely missed the postseason, finishing 11-9 and one game behind the Fighting Banana Slugs for the final playoff spot.
