Cast your vote for the York Revolution 10th Anniversary Team
With the 2016 season marking the 10th anniversary of York Revolution Baseball, the organization is turning things over to the fans to help decide the official 10th Anniversary Team. The official ballot has been posted below and on the official website, and fans will vote individually for each position on the field, a designated hitter, a five-man starting rotation, and relief pitchers. Fans may vote as many times as they would like for each position.
The highest vote-getting position players who are not voted as starters at their respective positions will be final additions to the 10th Anniversary Team, and out of 71 initial nominees, 25 players total will be honored. The criteria for being nominated varied: Career numbers with York, tremendous single-season performances and players who played for the Revolution briefly and then reached the Major Leagues were all taken into consideration. On Opening Day 2016 (date TBA), several former Revs will be back at Santander Stadium for a reunion, including as many players as possible that were selected to the 10th Anniversary roster and starting lineup. (Several of the nominated players are still working in the game in a coaching or scouting capacity.)
Fans may vote as many times as they would like for their favorite players in Revolution history, from now until February when the final results are tallied and the Revolution 10th Anniversary Team is announced prior to the season. Several positions will be highly competitive and the voting should be very close and fun to watch. Among the most intriguing is first base (Chris Ashby ’08, Ian Bladergroen ’10, Chris Nowak ’11-‘12 and Chad Tracy ’13-‘14). Good luck coming to a decision about the best in franchise history out of that group! But that’s why the selection of the team will be such a fun process. Regular updates on vote totals will be provided as things move forward.
