Teams Nearing Milestones in 2016

With the 2016 season less than a week away, it’s a good time to check in on upcoming milestones teams across the state can reach this season.  All of the current statistics come from the Wins List published on this site, which is based primarily on the research of Dr. Roger Saylor and can be found here.  Because 2016 will feature a 15-game season, all teams that fall within 15 games of each milestone are included below.

*Numbers in parentheses indicate statistics entering the 2016 season.
