Yesteday, I had the misfortune to stand in a line at an immigration station in Nairobi for 9 hours- 9 HOURS!- and then, almost getting turned away at the end. It worked out, but barely. Anyway, thanks for listening- I needed to vent for a second. That’s why I didn’t get a post finished yesterday.

So. With that in the past, let’s take a look at three more former Valley Leaguers who have had excellent college seasons: Bruce Strickland (Covington 2017), Dillon Reed (Winchester 2017), and Parker Phillips (Waynesboro 2017).

  • Strickland, a senior infielder at Felician, hit 373/432/590 in 54 games. He scored 58 runs, drove in 43, and hit 25 doubles, 5 triples, 4 home runs, and stole 5 bases. He also had a 15/25 BB/K ratio. He led Felician in doubles and home runs, and finished second in runs, hits, RBIs, and slugging percentage. He was named 1st team All-Region at 3B.
  • Reed, a junior transfer at Flagler (from Santa Fe College), hit 344/436/443 in 53 games and 212 at-bats. He scored 48 runs, drove in 32, and hit 8 doubles, 2 triples, and 3 home runs. He also had a 33/43 BB/K ratio and stole 10 bases.
  • A redshirt sophomore at Austin Peay, Phillips has hit 313/407/667 so far (the Ohio Valley Conference Championship just started), with 47 runs, 61 RBIs, 12 doubles, 19 home runs, 4 stolen bases, and a 20/51 BB/K ratio.
