You may recall me mentioning last year that 1990's born players would likely begin to outnumber 1970's born players this season. It wasn't even close. There are 31 1990's born players on opening day rosters compared to only eight 1970's born players.

1998 and 2000 are both shut out. If nothing changes this would mark the first season that any draft class was not represented.
