This summary is based on the team's opening day roster and will not be revised to reflect roster changes.

The 2007 Lugnuts are based about equally on last summer's very successful Auburn squad and on the 2006 Luggies.

Team         League              W/L   Place    Hitters Pitchers
                                      (Teams)
Dunedin      Florida State (A+) 68/69  8(12)       2       1
Lansing      Midwest (A)        72/65  7(14)       6       4
Auburn       New York-Penn (A-) 42/32  3(14)       5       7
Pulaski      Appalachian (R+)   35/33  3(10)       3       3

Many of these players appeared on two teams last summer and are counted here twice; two appeared for three teams. One of these players appeared briefly at the Double-A level, and another was acquired from another organization.
