1998 100-Game OOSL Record Breaker Watch




Here we are at the 100-Game Mark, also known in the OOSL as the All-Star Break. Let's take a look around the OOSL American and OOSL National and see if new single-season records are in the making, and if all-time OOSL marks are in danger of being broken. For each category we first list the OOSL Record Holder, then under that player we list at least four players who are closest to being on-track to matching or breaking that record. There you'll find the player's 100-game total, and his projected 154-game mark if he keeps pace.

Here is a convenient Link to the 1999 Watch page so you can easily compare the years:
