League Record Book: Hits

The next category for our 2004-2017 Valley League record book is hits. Let’s get right to it…

1 Tyler Kuhn Luray 2006 81
Cory Spangenberg Winchester 2010 81
3 Michael Wielansky Charlottesville 2017 80
4 Jimmy Yezzo Winchester 2012 79
5 Leo Rojas Winchester 2012 76
6 Gunnar McNeill Staunton 2014 75
7 Brad Zebedis Strasburg 2011 73
8 Julian Ridings Waynesboro 2012 72
Jordan Tarsovich Strasburg 2013 72
10 Andrew Turocy Waynesboro 2010 71
11 Stephen Kerr Charles Town 2014 70

Here we are again, with Michael Wielansky jumping almost to the top of a list of 14 years. Michael fell one hit short of equaling the best. I can think of at least three times he hammered a pitch but didn’t get a hit…. but of course, he probably got at least three hits when he didn’t have a high exit velocity. Anyway. Congrats to Michael.

Interesting that 11 players are within 11 hits of each other.
