League Record Book: Doubles

2004-2017 record book’s next category is doubles! (I would love to do a study someday about doubles in the VBL and how the translate or do not translate to power in other places…. would that even be possible? Hmm. Better write that down.)

1 Jimmy Yezzo Winchester 2012 21
2 Matt Holland Front Royal 2010 19
Brad Zebedis Strasburg 2011 19
Michael Wielansky Charlottesville 2017 19
5 James Roche Front Royal 2010 18
6 Jamie McOwen Luray 2006 17
Steve Sabins Winchester 2010 17
Hunter Newman Front Royal 2014 17
Gunnar McNeill Staunton 2014 17

11 Daniel Murphy Luray 2005 16
Jared Simon Front Royal 2009 16
AJ Wirnsberger Luray 2009 16
Carter Pharis Strasburg 2016 16

Wow- this list includes a 2005 and 2006 entry!

Major leaguers: Daniel Murphy
Current Minor Leaguers: None?!?!
Previous Minor Leaguers: Jimmy Yezzo, Matt Holland, James Roche, Jamie McOwen, Hunter Newman, Jared Simon

Again, Michael Wielansky enters the record book after his astonishing 2017 season. All 14 players are within 5 doubles, too.
