The next category for our Valley League record book for the years 2004-2017 is on-base percentage. We had three players join the batting average list from 2017, but none have joined on this one.
Take a look:
|1||Nick Sinay||Front Royal||2014||0.534|
So it turns out that no one has cracked the list since 2014!
Major leaguers: Jason Kipnis
Minor leaguers, but no longer: Cole Gruber, Luke Greinke, Mike Schwartz, Tyler Townsend
Still in minor leagues: Nick Sinay, Jordan Tarsovich
No affiliated ball: Ryan Sullivan (but I believe he played in the independent Frontier League), Blake Sipe (playing in RCBL), Mike Marcinko
Sinay, by the way, was ATVL’s #10 hitter in the league in 2014. Also by the way, Michael Wielansky (Charlottesville) led the 2017 crop with a .484 OBP.
