League Record Book: Strikeouts

Let’s take a look at the highest strikeout totals since the 2004 Valley League season!

1 Tim Gudex Harrisonburg 2004 89
2 Dustin Umberger Luray 2007 88
3 Cody Weiss Luray 2010 87
4 Drew Granier Harrisonburg 2010 84
5 Robert Gilliam Luray 2007 81
6 Jeff Dagenhart New Market 2004 79
Josh Eidell Woodstock 2007 79
8 Kevin Herget Strasburg 2012 77
9 Omar Aguilar Covington 2004 76
Sean Stidfole Winchester 2004 76

This list is almost the opposite of the innings pitched list, at least in terms of affiliated ball. On the innings pitched list, only two had played affiliated ball, while this list has only two players who did not (those two are Josh Eidell and Jeff Dagenhart).

None of the eight have reached the majors, and, in fact, only one- Kevin Herget- is still active. Kevin had a super 2016 season, even reaching Triple-A for an appearance. So maybe next year?

By the way, Blake Whitney led the 2016 Valley League with 63 K’s.
