World Series Fever Still Going Strong

CHICAGO (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – With the World Series finally finished, baseball fans are reflecting on America’s pastime while their bats are still hot.

The Fielder’s Choice survey conducted by gaming website Candystand.com revealed that despite the Boston Red Sox rejoicing with their championship crown, the slugger people want most on their online team is still notorious New York Yankees basher Babe Ruth.

Other hard-hitting stats include...

  • Yankees former-manager Joe Torre is the skipper people want most as their personal gaming coach, beating out Chicago Cubs honcho Lou Piniella.

  • Barry Bonds is the most controversial baseball big-shot, scandalously sliding in just ahead of Pete Rose and Mark McGuire.

  • Fantasy fanatics chose Alex Rodriguez as the player they’d most like to go helmet-to-helmet with in an online baseball battle.

    And finally, when it comes to Tinseltown tributes, people chose Major League as the ultimate baseball movie, edging out classics like The Natural, Field of Dreams, A League of Their Own, and Fever Pitch.
