Results from Saturday July 15

Just a heads up here; I have been at Red Wings Music Festival all weekend, so I’m a little behind on some of the stuff going on in the league.

For example, a former VBLer made his major league debut last night. Do you know who? Another former VBLer was traded…. the Valley League also sent a team to the Southern Collegiate Showcase, and won their first game yesterday. I hope to get to all of these in the next day or two.

Move on to the scores from last night….


Purcellville 7, Front Royal
Harrisonburg 7, Waynesboro 3
Staunton 8, Charlottesville 4
New Market 11, Strasburg 5
Winchester 5, Woodstock 3

Hitter of the Day

Jacob Rhinesmith Indian Hills CC 2017This is the easiest call I’ve ever made for this award- the HOD from last night is New Market’s Jacob Rhinesmith, from Indian Hills Community College! Jacob went an incredible 6-6, with 3 runs, 6 RBIs, and 2 doubles. He is now hitting 341/417/506 in 85 at-bats this summer. He average went up 50 points, OBP 39, and slugging 63 points in just one night! Anyway, this is the best night I can remember seeing in the last number of years.
