Will 2018 See Any Records Set?

With just a little less than a week remaining in the regular season, let’s take a quick look at players who might end up on the 2004-2018 record book for their performances this summer. Why 2004? It’s when ATVL started tracking stats, and information from before that is spotty at best.

Keep in mind that stats put up in the playoffs will be counted when it’s all said and done. (It’s because that’s the way the league used to do the stats- it was all combined.)

Batting Average

There are four players who, if the season ended today, would be either on the list or close. The top of the list is Michael Wielansky (.428, Charlottesville 2017), and the bottom, at #11, is Michael Garza (.388, Woodstock 2010).

  • Andrew Eyster, New Market: .420 (would put him tied for 2nd place)

    • Yep, Dennis, wins are irrelevant. I make that statement every year when I post theat section of the record book. However, since it is a stat that is kept, I keep it too.
