20 years of Stormers

Stormers Fans:

Heading into our 20th year, we wanted to involve you in selecting the 20 best Stormers in history.  Ross Peeples and I came up with an initial list of 72, pared it to 58, and then arrived at a final 50.  Some of those last cuts were extremely difficult to make as there were many more deserving of being considered.  We tried to balance stellar individual seasons with success over a number of years.  Pitchers and hitters are well balanced.  There are players from each part of our team’s history.

Please vote for 20 of these 50.  A brief statistical synopsis is included with each of the 50 candidates.  Who had the best numbers?  Who was the most entertaining to watch?  Enjoy the memories of watching each of these 50 stars.

We look forward to announcing the results as we approach the season.
