Poll: Best Age Bracket in Baseball? (Game 1)

11team_bracket_medium

Watching games lately, I have been intrigued by young players such as Bryce Harper and Mike Trout, as well as fascinated by some of the veterans like Derek Jeter and Chipper Jones. In my mind, I couldn't help but wonder how a team full young players could match up against some of the veterans today. So with a little bit of research and some help from you, I've decided to let the polls decide.

I have comprised 11 teams, full of players that fit within the given age bracket. Some ages (such as 28) have enough players to field a competitive team, but some of the other age groups (22 and under, 36 and older) had to contain more than one age to keep them competitive. I attempted to do a 49 and older group, but I didn't think Jamie Moyer had enough left to play all nine positions.

The bracket above shows the schedule of the voting, with the winner to be determined in about 3 weeks.

So make sure to vote and provide feedback on what you think of the rosters. I have added a DH to each team to allow for the addition of one extra batter. Some ages had multiple guys at one position who should make the roster. So the DH allowed me to add one of those guys, but the others I had to cut.

I hope you all enjoy! Voting for this matchup ends Sunday night at midnight, and I'll start game 2 on Monday morning.
