Season 25 Final Power Rankings

The regular season has wrapped up in Season 25 and the playoffs are under way.  Let's see how the Final Power rankings shaped up!  Not surprisingly, Little Rock remains #1 on the heels of an incredible regular season.  Chicago remains #2, while Nashville is up one spot to #3.  Rounding out the top 5, we have 2 teams each jumping 2 spots in Durham and Syracuse.  Now, for the biggest climbers and biggest falls since the last rankings!

Biggest Climbers: #11 Helena (+10), #17 Ottawa (+9), #13 New York (NL) (+6), #9 Louisville (+5)

Biggest Falls: #22 Las Vegas (-9), #16 New Britain (-8), #26 Norfolk (-8)

It should certainly be an interesting postseason with several teams having dominant regular seasons in the mix.  Little Rock was dominant, but there's a handful of teams that should put forth a good challenge.  Good luck to the playoff teams and here are the complete final power rankings for Season 25!

Season 25 All-Star Recap

The All-Star break has passed for Season 25, so let's take a look back at the festivities!

On the AL team, Delino Santana of Charlotte made his 11th All-Star Appearance to lead the way.  There were 18 first-time All-Stars on the AL team, with only one other player making more than their 3rd appearance.  Boise had the most AL All-Stars with 7.

The NL team had 10 first-time All-Stars, with Durham's Valerio Baez and Honolulu's Justin Jordan leading the way, each make their 8th All-Star appearance.  Durham had the most All-Stars on the NL side with 5.

The Home Run Derby saw Durham's Julio Park dominate the Final, winning 9-3, making him the back-to-back champion, a feat that you don't see too often.

The All-Star game itself was a thriller, with the NL scoring 2 in the top of the 9th to take a 5-3 lead, only for the AL to come back with 3 in the bottom half to take the 6-5 win. Kennie Owen hit the game-winning double with 2 outs in the bottom of the 9th to put him at 3 for 3 for the day, good enough to win All-Star Game MVP.

The US team dominated the Futures Game, led by lead-off man Vince Knotts who was 1 for 2 with 3 walks, 3 runs and a stolen base that earned him the game's MVP honors.

Here is the complete list of All-Stars for Season 25!
