Kingman seems like a pretty old school Americana kind of place, and what's more American than baseball? Especially since Kingman's real high schools seem to have some pretty good ballplayers, and the American pastime has something of a history in SOTF as it is. Cochise already has a few team members, so I thought having a one-stop shop thread would be a good way to organise who's where, figure out team dynamics and for people to express interest in joining up! While there's nine dudes on the field at a given point on the team, don't feel too pressured, because there's other roles needed after all. If you're interested in putting a guy on the team, follow the format here, name – handler name – position in mind.

Like Sansa did with the cheerleading thread, it'd probably also be cool to jot down known associates of the team.

Current Members:

Crisanto Luz – TBH – Starting pitcher
Cristobal Morales – backslash – Second baseman
Morgan Jones – Pippin – ???
Tony Lambert – Fiori – Shortstop
Alex Darby – DuckyB – Catcher
Jerry Fury (Who? :P) – MK Kilmarnock – First baseman
Gary Merlino – MurderWeasel – ???
Meryl Weaver - Namira - Starting pitcher
Irene Djezari - CicadaDays - Reliever
??? - Bro - ???
??? - yugi - Third baseman

Associates:

Other positions needed:
-Outfielders
-More fielders; even if all the infield positions fill up, we'll need people who can play backup and stuff.
-More starting pitchers; your typical baseball team has a five man rotation, to allow its pitchers to get enough rest between games, and high school baseball has mandatory rest periods for its pitchers, because pitching is actually super hard on your arms
-Relief pitchers; the guys in the bullpen waiting to pick up after the starter if he starts underperforming, getting tired, whatever

Based on the re-writes I'm doing for Alex, I'll put him in for consideration for catcher. It seems like the position he'd most likely angle for and suit him best, since he's at his top game when he's a defensive, overarching position. He's played for a long time and baseball is how he maintains tentative peace with his uncle, so he's pretty knowledgeable about the game. I'm only casually familiar with the sport but I'm throwing in hard on research for him anyway because I'm an obsessive nut. If the team'd prefer somebody else in that position, that's cool too, since it's an important one, just seems to be the best fit for him so far.
One thing I'd say to note well is the catcher is the most physically demanding position in baseball, them or the shortstop. Make sure Alex is someone who could handle the strain, especially since a lot of catchers end up developing knee problems down the road.

Sounds good, I've noted you down and it doesn't sound like anyone's got a problem with that. We've still got plenty of openings though.

Neato, I'll edit it in. Remind me to grab you next you're in chat to hash out character ideas too.

Updated! I hope for all our sakes he's better at baseball than MMA! Any runner will obviously be going to him first so he'll have to be a good fielder with quick reflexes to catch throws and stop plays, and teams will often put their power hitters in the corner positions (first and third, right field and left field), something to keep in mind when putting him together.

Speaking of updates, I wanted to note that this isn't just restricted to the first nine people to post. Baseball teams generally have a lot of players to work with, for purposes of positional depth - if you only have one guy who can play first base, what happens if he gets sick or injured or can't play on a given day? The starting lineup are the nine guys playing on a given day, and teams seem to often have a first string that are usually the starters, but substitutions and such are a thing. For example, look at these lists for the New York Mets, as well as these rosters for actual high school teams in the area (or at least the division Kingman's schools seem to be in for 2015). As you can see, there's room to put people in without worrying too much about room, and we can always hash out who's generally starting where among ourselves (or I guess assume the first nine to sign up are the usual starting lineup); plus, if you'd rather your guy be more of a backup player, the option is there.

I've updated the OP to factor in you and Yugi.

There's still openings for this! Especially since, with Cicada gone, I have no idea whether Irene is still part of the team (Ohm?).

MIGHT be, and it's less a "okay Irene is irrevocably off the team" and more a "we don't know what's happening there".

It looks like Fiori's dropping, so the slot his character was filling is open again.

Random bumpage. I'll hopefully finally have Cris done soon, any baseballers want a thread for some of the team to get together?

I'm coming up on finishing Cris, so last call: I don't recall, but was there any particular opposition to Cris being team captain?
