Even though I'm third in picking a team, there is still plenty of talent out there, and I'll do my best to pick a team that can compete. First, I'm going to start with Benji Lehner, arguably one of the best softball players to come out of Superior. How could those two so-called softball experts not pick him? He can hit, run, catch and throw the ball with the best of them. I'll put Lehner in the outfield.
