APBA releases 2008 carded player list

Recently the APBA Game Company released their list of carded players for their 2008 baseball season.

Listed under Kansas City is “Joey G]” who is most certainly Joey Gathright.

If you want an Excel version of the list, you can download it here (zipped).  Thanks to Mike Bunch, our hard working commish in the Illowa APBA League for importing the list.

According to our league rules, to determine how many rookie draft picks each team gets each year, we uses a hard usage limit (125 at bats for hitters, 20 G or 30 IP for pitchers).  If a players doesn’t go over that limit, he is eligible to be dropped in favor of a rookie pick.

That said, there are some players (in our league’s case, two) who go over the limit yet still don’t get a card.  One case, reliever Jorge Julio slipped under the wire with 27 games and 30 IP.  But Julio won’t be getting a card next year anyway much to the delight of his owner in our league.  He’ll be replacing him with a rookie in our winter draft.

Julio’s absence in next year set is helped by the fact he spent time with two teams.

I am an IT consultant by day and an APBA media mogul by night. My passions are baseball (specifically Illini baseball), photography and of course, APBA. I have been fortunate to be part of the basic game Illowa APBA League since 1980 as well as the BBW Boys of Summer APBA League since 2014. I am slogging through a 1966 NL replay and hope to finish before I die.
