This season is likely the last that A.L. fans will be able to see the Road Warriors, I've decided to take a look at statistics over the past 5 seasons to see who has done the best, in the harshest situation in all of minor league baseball. I set up, what is in my opinion, the most important stats and created a record book for the years of 2002-2004 and 2006, including this years top producers, who have chances at breaking the previous set record. The first record book is of only seasonal categories and I will make one of players who spent more than one season on the traveling squad. Categories included are, Games Played, Batting Average, At Bats, Runs, Hits, Doubles, Triples, Home Runs, RBIs, Walks, Strike Outs, Stolen Bases, Caught Stealing, and GIDP. For pitchers, Games, Games Started, CG, Wins, Losses, Saves, Innings Pitched, ERA, BB, Ks, and Wild Pitches. Looking up and down the stats, you can see who was able to thrive while being in the red and grey. Players like Pat Burns, Kyle Goldwater, Tim Kester, and especially Mike Huggins dominate the record book. At the end of this season I will post the record book.
In addition to any stat, I collected the all time Road Warrior home run list. Including players who played more than one season with the Road Warriors. The list is led by IF Dario Delgado who hit 22 in his lone, 2003 season with the Road Warriors. Yesterday, however, OF Jason Bryan hit his 12th and 13th of the season to tie Delgado on the list. Bryan spent last year with the Road Warriors and hit 9 long balls. Second on the list is 1B Mike Huggins, and closing in on everyone is OF Steve Doetsch who has hit 19 already this year.
