Hello everyone and welcome back to the Minor League Ball Gameday thread. Today we unveil another three sections to the spreadsheet! The 50 Helium Tank players have been selected and are now being tracked. For a quick refresher on the Helium Tank players, these players have gotten off to a great start to the year and have gained some helium in their prospect status. If they keep up their current pace, expect these players to shoot up prospect rankings.

Go to the Helium Tank tab on the bottom of the spreadsheet, next to the IFA's, to see who all has been added. In addition to the Helium Tank we have added tabs for the season stats of all players. Anyone being tracked in the spreadsheet will be listed in this section, including the newest players.

Click the link below for the Gameday spreadsheet, which will open in a separate tab in your browser. Scroll down for the schedule for today's slate of games, the Duel's of the Day, and our running injury list.
