Notes: Likely the best pure hitter in the franchise's history, Fajardo sits at or near the top of nearly every measurable stat in the game. He almost singlehandedly carried the offence during the legends winning 2036 season. It's a sad day letting him go but a proud day to enter him into the hall of fame!

Notes: The only Cy Young winner in the JJNZ Error, Livingston was a Very Good 12 pot who other than his Cy Young season as a starter became an extremely reliable set up man in the latter stages of his career.


Hall of Famer Lenny Holton
United States   #6 - Lenny Holton [ID #124604]     OF
Home Town: Kenosha, Wisconsin           College: Southeastern Illinois College           Drafted: 2026, Round #2 by Manhattan Isotopes

Notes: Despite not having the typical build of a corner OF, Holton was a mainstay in RF and the top of the order through his career due to his immaculate contact and OBP ability. His excellent defense in RF further cements his spot in the HOF, he's one of the key guys behind the successful 2036 campaign.


Hall of Famer Joel Brown

Hall of Famer Tatsuhiko Hashiratani
Japan   #10 - Tatsuhiko Hashiratani [ID #164761]     P
Home Town: Sōka, Japan           School: none           Drafted: 2034, Round #1 by Boulder Free Zoners
Hall Of Famer                     Bats (R)           Throws (R)           Positions: P
Games 413, W 100, L 85, S 7, CG 2, SHO 1, ERA 4.29, BAA .263, WHIP 1.425, IP 1610⅓, K 1087
Notes: A career ERA in the 4's generally doesn't demand a place in the HOF, neither does a career 100/85 WL record.

2 things have got Tats to the HOF though:

2036, Missoula win it all in legends. Playoff MVP? none other that Tats with 2 elite starts and a 1.93 ERA>

2041, Boulder win the BB Cup, Player of the entire cup, and final series? Tats again! 46 innings of 0.98 ball including 6 starts and a 7/0 record.

Tats - average, unless under pressure!


Hall of Famer Casey Madison
United States   #12 - Casey Madison [ID #89211]     P
Home Town: Los Angeles, California           College: Fresno State University
Hall Of Famer                     Bats (R)           Throws (R)           Positions: P
Games 529, W 100, L 64, S 59, CG 5, SHO 1, ERA 3.49, BAA .248, WHIP 1.216, IP 1321⅓, K 540
Notes: Originally bought up as a starting pitcher, Madison developed into one of the most dependable relievers in Missoula's history, his presence at the back end of the bullpen is sadly missed!


Hall of Famer Ricardo Soriano
United States   #13 - Ricardo Soriano [ID #98226]     3B
Home Town: Fort Worth, Texas           School: none
Hall Of Famer                     Bats (L)           Throws (R)           Positions: 3B
Games 1453, AVE .288, OBP .361, SLG .416, OPS .777, H 1319, 2B 284, 3B 9, HR 95, RBI 572, SB 15
Notes: Soriano filled a gaping void at 3B when first bought up and despite struggling in his first couple of seasons put up brilliant numbers throughout his career. Claimed as a 12 pot 1-claimer in 2024, his 13 seasons as a Polar Bear make him one of the longest tenured players in the modern error, culminating in being part of the Legends Championship winning team in 2036.


Hall of Famer José Chavarria
Puerto Rico   #15 - José Chavarria [ID #110624]     P
Home Town: San Juan, Puerto Rico           School: none           Drafted: 2023, Round #4 by Boulder Free Zoners
Hall Of Famer                     Bats (R)           Throws (R)           Positions: P
Games 206, W 83, L 65, CG 16, SHO 4, ERA 3.55, BAA .246, WHIP 1.280, IP 1308⅓, K 944
Notes: One of the few players in Missoula/Boulders history who could call themselves an ace. While he never quite reached the heights that he may have been able to achieve, a career 3.55 ERA and 83 wins make him a solid HOF candidate.


Hall of Famer Enrique Prieto
Panama   #18 - Enrique Prieto [ID #108274]     OF
Home Town: Arraiján, Panama           School: none
Hall Of Famer                     Bats (L)           Throws (L)           Positions: OF
Games 1146, AVE .275, OBP .327, SLG .432, OPS .759, H 932, 2B 246, 3B 24, HR 80, RBI 466, SB 234
Notes: On the verge of being cut after an abysmal start to being a Polar Bear in 2028, Prieto barely scraped through the 2029 season before breaking out and becoming the starting CF for 7 solid seasons of elite OF defense and above average offense.


Hall of Famer Alfredo Marrero
United States   #29 - Alfredo Marrero [ID #103168]     C
Home Town: Palm Bay, Florida           School: none
Hall Of Famer                     Bats (R)           Throws (R)           Positions: C of
Games 1031, AVE .285, OBP .360, SLG .409, OPS .768, H 1032, 2B 261, 3B 18, HR 51, RBI 466, SB 11
Notes: Marrero's extreme groundball hitting ways have done little to stop him joining the conversation as part of the greatest C to be a Polar Bear. Filling a hole after a number of veterans played for a couple of seasons at a time, Marrero contributed 8 seasons as the starting catcher providing a cannon arm with well above average offense.


Hall of Famer Johnny Barnes
United States   #98 - Johnny Barnes [ID #44164]     2B
Home Town: San Antonio, Texas           School: none
Hall Of Famer                     Bats (S)           Throws (R)           Positions: 2B 1b 3b ss
