2017 Power Rankings: Preseason
March 24, 2017
1.) Eastern Eagles: The defending champions return everybody from their 2016 roster, and they will be the favorites to win it all again in 2017. They are by far the most experienced team in the league and they still have all the right pieces to win another World Series.
2.)Midwest Mallards: Expect this team to come onto the scene and win from the start. Tommy Coughlin returns to MLW in hopes to lead his team to a World Series title. They also feature 2-time champion, Noah Daberko and 2013 champion, Dalton Porth.
.3.) Western Wildcats: After a disappointing finish to the 2016 season, this team is going into the 2017 season as a complete mystery. Of course, Kyle Schultz is there to lead the ship, but the question is whether or not he has enough support in the lineup behind him to make 2017 a successful year.
4.) Coastal Cobras: Drew Davis had a very promising 2016 season, taking home Rookie of the Year honors. This year he looks to stay steady on the mound, but improve his offensive game as well. Casey McCarthy provides a solid bat in the lineup behind him that will be key for this young team.
5.) Pacific Predators: The most exciting team is back again, this time with realistic chances of having a good year. They made a terrific run late last year, coming just one game of reaching the World Series, and if Warda can pitch how he did during that run, they can be dangerous.
6.) Southern Seahawks: The biggest concern for the Seahawks this year is that they don't feature an ace on the mound. House and Gabel have shown promise in the past, but they really need someone to step up big in order for this team to win some games.
Ever wondered how far the bases were apart from each other? Or how far the fence and pitchers mound are? Take a look!
