Pennsylvania Dream Team

This was a surprise Dream team filled with Hall of Famers. Many of the Hall of Famers played prior to 1920 and my world wanted to keep this team more in the modern era. This team is composed of players born in Pennsylvania who played in the major leagues with most of their playing time occurring after 1920.

Starting Lineup

Nellie Fox 2B
Ken Griffey Jr. CF
Stan Musial LF
Reggie Jackson RF
Mike Piazza C
Frank Thomas DH
Dick Allen 1B
Buddy Bell 3B
Dick Groat SS

Bench

Roy Campanella (c), Eddie Stanky (Util), Vic Wertz, Jack Clark, Gene Tenace, Hack Wilson

Starting Pitching

Mike Mussina, Herb Pennock, Sam McDowell, Jamie Moyer, Curt Simmons

Bullpen

Bruce Sutter, Sparky Lyle, Gene Garber, Bobby Shantz, Gary Lavelle, Bob Purkey

This team is loaded with catchers and first baseman. Tenace could do some catching and Lance Parrish was left off the team. Not a lot of depth in the infield. No real shortstop to cover for Groat. The bullpen has two good closers in Sutter and Lyle but after that it gets a little thin. That made room for two long men in Shantz and Purkey. This team will score a lot of runs with their power bats.
