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.

This year's LumberKings are based on last summer's Billings team, which was pretty good despite its middle-of-the-pack finish. The rest of the players came from throughout the Reds system.

Team        League             W/L   Place    Hitters Pitchers
                                    (Teams)
Rockford    Midwest (A)        76/63  4(14)      2        2
Clinton     Midwest (A)        68/69  8(14)      5        4
Billings    Pioneer (R+)       42/33  4(8)      10        7
Reds        Gulf Coast (R)     23/37 14(14)      4        3

There was lots of movement in the Reds system last year; many of these players show up in two teams' counts on the table. All of these players had Cincy contracts last summer, and none of them have appeared above Class A.
