Paul Schaller Hits Career HR #500

Post by LTJaeger » Sat Mar 21, 2020 7:00 pm

Five-time MVP Paul Schaller showed that life begins at 40 by banging out career HR #500 against Luis Cerce of the Seattle Rhinos. Schiller's blast gave the hometown crowd something to cheer about in a 7-4 loss, continuing the Highlander's poor season.

Schaller, a 14-time all star and a surefire HOFer, moved into a tie for 15th place on the career HR list when he blasted #501 the next day. Currently, Schaller is #10 in career hits (3,386); #11 in RBIs (1,849); # in 20 in runs (1,820); and # 15 in batting average (.316).

When asked if he was going to play forever, Schaller replied "Some days it feels like I can go until I'm 45, but there is no doubt that I can't do the things I used to, and this will probably be my last season. Hitting #500 was something I could only dream of when I first came up. What a great ride it's been; thanks to all my teammates and the fans for their many years of support."

Great player! And a +192 for his career as a SS.

I was really glad to see that Schaller was able to come back this season and achieve this milestone. A HOF fame worthy career for sure!

In 17 seasons, last season was only the 2nd in which Schaller didn’t collect at least one piece of hardware. And 9 of the seasons were at least two awards! Pretty amazing sim career.

Not only a HOFer, but one of the absolute greatest all-around players in Cesar Cedeno history. 500+/500+ in HR and 2B, +192 +/-, .900 career OPS, 5 MVP awards in a 6-year stretch, including 4 consecutive...unreal. Really happy to see him achieve these milestones. Congrats!

Thanks guys. He truly has been a remarkable player, probably the best position player I've ever had in my SIM Dynasty history. Ole ABE did it right when he put together this guy.
