Best Reserve List Pick

In 1992 we added an award to recognize the owner who was most prescient during the second stage of our Draft. When we expanded to Ultra, we added seventeen man reserve lists to our teams (actually originally we test drove Ultra in the beginning with a 12 man reserve list and then shortly thereafter expanded to the recommended 17 man reserve roster). So now on Draft Day, we acquire, via auction draft, our 23 active man rosters. Then we move right into a true draft to fill our seventeen man roster.

You would think that (in a ten team league) once you have filled your active roster (230 players) there isn't much talent left. Au contraire. There has proven to be scads of baseball goodness lingering on the Reserve Rosters. And for the owner that grabs the most productive player, he is bestowed with the Best Reserve Pick Award. Here is the list of past winners:
