So who were these four teams bucking the trend? Let's look at the three shortstops:
- 1/9: the #PetrolerosPEÑ :petroleros: take 26-year-old shortstop Jorge Peña, impressed by his plate discipline. More on him later.
- 1/47: the #PicudosCEI :picudos: take 25-year-old shortstop Josué Salgado, a good hitter and excellent fielder.
- 1/71: the #IngenierosRIN :ingenieros: (you knew they'd be here) take 33-year-old shortstop Omar Contreras. He loses the starting job by 1875 and retires by 1879.
