The 2022 baseball season of the Abra Cadavers, the official combined team of the Medical Examiners office, the Six Shooters, Century Club, and the Beachcombers is now underway!
Your goal is to complete all ten types of Plate Appearances (PA)* to become an All-Star.
The team is open to anyone participating in one of the challenges who needs to relax after a rough day in the morgue, shooting gallery, dining room, or beach. All reading previously submitted to any of the 2022 Mystillery challenges counts! Just put on a helmet, grab a bat, step up to the plate, and swing for the fences! This game follows the regular Major League baseball season.
Any reading from Jan 1 2022 to date is eligible!
