At the end of last summer’s Valley League season, ATVL named the top 10 starters, based on their statistics, in the entire league.

Well, since we’re at the end of March, I think it’s time to check in on the list- how are they doing in their 2018 college season? (Stats through Tuesday, March 27)

  1. Zach Peek, Winthrop (Strasburg): 3-2, 4.43, 40 2/3 innings, 32 hits, 6 walks, and 51 strikeouts. (Read that again- 6 walks, 51 K’s!)

  3. Andy Crum, Shippensburg (Purcellville): 1-1, 2.25, 28 hits, 7 BB, 22 K’s in 28 IP
