Checking In On 2017 Top Starters

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!)
  2. Sean McCracken, Johns Hopkins (Charlottesville): 3-1, 3.33, 29 hits, 8 BB, 20 K’s in 27 IP
  3. Andy Crum, Shippensburg (Purcellville): 1-1, 2.25, 28 hits, 7 BB, 22 K’s in 28 IP
  4. Ben Dum, VCU (Strasburg): 1-0, 1.17, 2 saves, 18 hits, 3 walks, 24 K’s in 23 IP- all in relief
  5. Nick Fuchs, Longwood (Woodstock): Has not pitched. Nick transferred from Gannon to Longwood.
  6. Mason Studstill, Eastern Florida State (Harrisonburg): 1-4, 5.44, 52 hits, 27 walks, 48 K’s in 41 1/3 innings
