Where they played last season

This is a brief portrait of how the team was put together. These summaries are based on the team's opening day roster and will not be revised to reflect roster changes.

Most of the Lugnuts played for Eugene last summer. It could be a long summer....

Team         League             W/L    Place    Hitters Pitchers
                                      (Teams)
Daytona      Florida State (A+) 63/75  11(14)      0       0
Lansing      Midwest (A)        73/67   6(14)      3       3
Eugene       Northwest (A-)     29/47   8(8)      10      11
Cubs         Arizona (R)        18/37   8(8)       3       6

The Cubs moved many of these pitchers last summer, though the position players tended to stay put. One of the Luggies played independent baseball last summer. None of these played any higher in the minors than Lansing.
