All-Presidential Name Team

As a member of the Society of American Baseball Research (SABR), I get many emails regarding different elements of baseball's history (Quick side note, I'm in SABR for the history of the game, not to make up new statistics or try to argue why Bobby Abreu is a top 10 player all-time). One email series that I am a part of is the 'Theme Teams', whereby a theoritical team will be made up with one thing in common (recent examples have been the 'All-Mullet Team' and the 'All-Played For More Than One Team With Pat Gillick as GM Team'). Combining my love of baseball with my love of American history, I present to you my All-Presidential Name Team...
