Exposing the Israel Baseball League Player

Using the 64 player profiles currently listed on the IBL website I organized the information and below are the results.

Favorite Foods

Some of the foods mentioned could be added to the categories. For example, Eggplant Parmesan could have been added to the Italian category, Nachos and Tacos could have been added to Mexican and Humus, Mediterranean, Middle Eastern and Israeli food could have been combined with Falafel. Also, Pasta and Pizza could clearly be combined with Italian. But I decided to be a purist and only tally the exact words used.

Favorite Movies

Rocky III got one vote so I guess the Rocky series wins with five votes. Major League received two votes and Major League II received one vote so the Major League series totaled three votes which could have made the list. Others receiving two voters were The Big Lebowski, Borat, Pulp Fiction, The Natural, Batman, Field of Dreams, Braveheart, Bull Durham.

Below are player averages broken down by position

The Average Pitcher is:
Height - 6 feet 1 inch
Weight - 192 lbs

18 Righties
9 Lefties

The Average Outfielder is:

I don't know how you have the time to do all this stuff, but it makes for great reading.
