Legion of Infield Superheroes

Charter Members

Edgar "Green Lantern" Renteria- Beaming homers to left , RBI singles to center, and double play balls to first like he's got a magic ring.

John "Mr. Fantastic" Olerud- Is stretchy enough to Hoover up nearly anything thrown in the vicinity of first. Then he coils himself up again to hit homers.

Billy "Captain Marvel" Mueller- May look like a ten year old boy sans beard, but put a bat in his hand, and two outs on the board? SHAZAAM.

Mark "The Martian Manhunter" Bellhorn- Unemotional, occasionally frustrating, but when needed reveals powers beyond those of mortal men.

Kevin "Robin" Millar-Mostly stands around making inane comments and needing to be rescued, but then does something amazing and endearing to remind you why you loved him in the first place.

Honorary Member, Outfield Auxillary

Jay "The Flash" Payton- Turns ordinary doubles into triples within the blink of an eye.
