Which fictional baseball movie character would you take first in your fantasy draft?

henry-and-the-jetOpening day of the baseball season is just a few weeks away. A new season of hope begins for some franchises looking to turn the corner while other teams are working to sustain greatness. Fans are getting prepared by checking out all the players in spring training and ranking them for their upcoming fantasy drafts. I was doing my fantasy rankings the other day while Major League II was on which got me thinking. What if you could draft one character from a fictional baseball film and add them to your favorite baseball team?

Would you take a veteran arm like Chet Steadman to solidify the rotation? Maybe you need a young up and comer like Billy “Downtown” Anderson from Major league III to be the centerpiece you build your franchise around.

I compiled an extensive list of some of the best fictional characters ever created (not including Roy Hobbs from the Natural who was too good) to help you decide. Let us know who you would take and why?
