The 8th best starting pitcher in the 2017 VBL season is Strasburg’s Dylan Hall, from Virginia Tech!
Dylan was one of the (admittedly many) reasons that the Express came within a game of a third straight Jim Lineweaver trophy. Let’s take a look…
Of the pitchers considered for this list, Dylan finished 8th in ERA, 10th in innings pitched, 6th in K’s AND batting average, 9th in WHIP, 10th in BB/9, and 5th in K/9. After a solid regular season over 35 innings, Dylan then threw 12 2/3 playoff innings while allowing only 1 unearned run. His best start was in the playoffs, against New Market on July 30th, when he threw 5 shutout innings, while allowing 4 hits, 3 walks, and striking out 5.
Dylan, a Stafford, Virginia, native, is a current sophomore at Virginia Tech. Here are his stats for his freshman year, in which he threw 23 innings:
Congratulations on your excellent summer, Dylan!
