Here today, gone tomorrow

The high was 81. The low was 37.

No, that’s not the weather forecast for Memphis this week, although it was still reaching the 70s here last week.

Those numbers represent the most and fewest players employed by the teams in CDRL in 2016. The champion Memphis Kings rolled through 81 players during the season. Stephen Piscotty managed the most at bats with 582 in a Kings uniform. Taylor Featherston, who modeled several jerseys during the season, didn’t get an official at bat for the Kings, but did steal a base. On the flip side, Corey Knebel pitched in one game for the Kings, retired no batters and gave up two hits and a walk.

The Kings employed 44 hitters and 37 pitchers.

Memphis Mojo, the 2013 champ, used only 37 players during the season. Tommy Pham, who got one at bat for the Kings, had 137 for Mojo, the fewest of his 16 offensive players. Chad Qualls, who bounced around the league like one of my errant wedge shots hitting a cart path, toed the slab for an inning for Mojo.

Here’s the complete list, showing hitters, pitchers and total:

1. Kings: 44-37 — 81

2. Crusoes: 37-32 — 69

3. Bears: 32-26 — 58

4. Shibe: 32-21 — 53

5. (tie) Bake’s: 30-19 — 49
(tie) Keynesians: 23-26 –49

7. (tie) MOB: 22-23 — 45
(tie) Knights: 26-19 — 45

9. Hose: 23-18 — 41

10. Joes: 23-17 — 40

11. Suspects: 22-17 — 39

12. Mojo: 16-21 — 37
