1 Jimmy Yezzo Winchester 2012 21
2 Matt Holland Front Royal 2010 19
Brad Zebedis Strasburg 2011 19
Michael Wielansky Charlottesville 2017 19

11 Daniel Murphy Luray 2005 16
Jared Simon Front Royal 2009 16
AJ Wirnsberger Luray 2009 16

Quite an eclectic list here. Almost every season has a representative, but not quite all, and there are some pretty big names here. Let’s do the normal breakdown:

Major Leaguers: Daniel Murphy (Probably the most decorated Valley Leaguer of the past decade)
Current Minor Leaguers: Michael Wielansky
Previous Minor Leaguers: Jimmy Yezzo, Matt Holland, James Roche, Jamie McOwen, Hunter Newman, Jared Simon
No pro experience: Brad Zebedis, Steve Sabins (assistant coach at West Virginia), Gunnar McNeill, Thatcher Coleman (just finished at Presbyterian), AJ Wirnsberger
Current College Players: Andrew Eyster (sophomore at South Carolina- would have had 19 doubles except he slipped rounding first once), Carter Pharis (senior at UAB)

By Team:

  • Front Royal- 4
  • Luray- 3
