BA Top 100 Bracket Challenge: Vote For Your Favorite Prospect Of The Last Decade

Bracket Challenge For Web (1)

We have a winner!

Two weeks of voted yielded a fairly unsurprising result: Mike Trout is your favorite Top 100 prospect of the last decade.

Trout won the championship handily, receiving 81 percent over the vote over Francisco Lindor, who upset Jason Heyward, Wander Franco, Fernando Tatis Jr. and Bryce Harper to arrive in the final.

Thank you to everyone for voting!

Top 100 Bracket (1) Launch Gallery

As a reminder...

The gist is pretty simple: Vote on your favorite prospects of the past decade, and see who makes the cut.

The bracket only includes Top 100 prospects from 2010 to 2019.

And more specifically, prospects are seeded where they topped in the Top 100, meaning they had to at least rank 16th or higher entering the season.

Happy voting! And should you want to peruse old Top 100s, you can do so here.
