SPIBL Owner Of The Year:  Alan Lecher

Nominees (in alphabetical order):

Jim Kies (Toronto Sharpshooters) -- In his second year in the League, Jim led Toronto to a National League best 95-67 record, including an impressive 45-36 record on the road.  In winning the NL Central, Toronto outscored its opponents 5.46 to 4.38 runs per game.

Alan Lecher (Chicago Blue Knights) -- In his first year in the League, Alan led Chicago to an American League (and SPIBL) best 108-54 record, running away with the AL Central, and fashioning a 42-39 record on the road.  Chicago had six winning streaks of 6 games or more and outscored their opponents 6.12 to 4.41 runs per game.  Alan also made invaluable contributions to the League by assuming responsibility for the League website and added a ton of content and professional polish to the site.

Todd Melton (Anaheim Ants) -- In his first year in the League, Todd led Anaheim to a Wild Card birth in a competitive NL West with an 81-81 record, including a 37-44 record on the road.  At one point in the season, Anaheim lost 17 of 19 games and had a record of 12-23.  In last place in the NL West as late as August 13th, the Ants went 29-16 to finish the season tied with Seattle.  A scrappy team with a "never say die" attitude, Anaheim outscored its opponents 4.59 to 4.15 runs per game.

Mike Orenstein (Philadelphia Phanatics) -- A veteran owner who is used to success,  Mike Orenstein perhaps did his best managing ever this season.  Philadelphia won an NL best 46 games on the road and, despite trailing for most of the year, ended up with the same regular season as Baltimore and secured a Wild Card slot.  Perhaps most impressively, Philadelphia went 31-23 against its rivals in the NL East, and outscored their opponents 5.01 to 4.26 runs per game.

Larry Reeves (Oakland Diamond Kings) -- In his first year in the League, Larry led Oakland to an NL West crown with a 104-58 record, including an impressive 44-37 mark on the road.  Oakland outscored its opponents 5.81 to 4.51 runs per game and enjoyed a 10-game winning streak during the course of the season.
