The best players at each position in the 2030's, as voted on by the TNBL GMs.
by TNBLGRAPHS STAFF

After a long offseason of building a ballot and collecting votes, we are finally able to announce the TNBL’s All-Decade team for the 2030s.

First, a note: This announcement marks the end of a special run for this league. As we enter our 13th season, I think it’s important to recognize this league’s stability and community. I’ve been a part of several other leagues, but nothing compares.

That’s in large part due to our longtime members and our (growing) group of committed simmers. I’ll recognize them below:

Commissioners
Will | Cloud City Sky Pirates | 12 seasons. Former commissioner and active simmer
Andrew | Durham Bulls and Seattle Mariners | 8 seasons | Commissioner and active simmer

Other simmers
Kdog | Arizona Diamondbacks, Myrtle Beach Mermen & Washington Nationals | 10 seasons
Will | Everett Hawks | 11 seasons
Ryan | Italia Stivali | 12 seasons

10+ seasons of service
Will | Los Angeles Angels -> Cloud City Sky Pirates | 12 seasons
Ryan | Detroit Tigers -> Italia Stivali | 12 seasons
Vinson | New York Yankees -> Vinson Emperors | 12 seasons
Will | San Diego Padres -> Everett Hawks | 11 seasons
Kdog | Arizona Diamondbacks, Washington Nationals & Myrtle Beach Mermen | 10 seasons
Corey | Pittsburgh Pirates | 10 seasons

Now, without further adieu...
