Now that we’ve finished the look at the minor league career record book for hitters, we’ll turn our attention to the seasonal records. For some of these, of course, not much has changed in years. (And, keep in mind, these records are over the past 11 seasons- starting in 2006.) So let’s start with runs.
|1||John Raynor||New Market ’04||2007||110|
|2||Sherman Johnson||Covington ’09-10||2014||107|
|3||John Raynor||New Market ’04||2008||104|
|4||Jason Kipnis||Covington ’06-07||2010||96|
|Tyler Bortnick||Front Royal ’06||2011||96|
|6||Tyson Auer||Luray ’05-06||2010||95|
|Collin Cowgill||Covington ’05||2011||95|
|8||Mac Williamson||Harrisonburg ’11||2013||94|
|9||Mike Mitchell||Staunton ’06||2008||93|
|Joey Butler||New Market ’06||2012||93|
Nothing new since Sherman Johnson scored all the way to 2nd place in 2014. John Raynor holding down 1st AND 3rd looks pretty good.
Major leaguers: Raynor, Jason Kipnis, Collin Cowgill, Mac Williamson, and Joey Butler. (I would hope that Johnson makes it in 2017, but, obviously, there are no guarantees…)
Out of affiliated ball: Raynor, Auer, Mitchell.
