Major League Record Book: Career Doubles

Which former Valley Leaguers have the most doubles in the major leagues? Read on…..

2006-2018
1 Dan Murphy Luray ’05 333
2 Jason Kipnis Covington ’06-7 229
3 Jon Jay Staunton ’04 176
4 Yonder Alonso Luray ’06 168

6 Cory Spangenberg Winchester ’10 47

8 Collin Cowgill Covington ’05 22
9 Clint Robinson Harrisonburg ’05-6 19
Ryan Schimpf Luray ’08 19
11 Eric Campbell Luray ’06 18

Additions: None (And honestly, there aren’t too many up-and-coming hitters in the minor leagues, either. Maybe Rudy Flores, current free agent, will get a few at-bats?)

Changes: The only change is that Tyler White hit 12 doubles and passed Collin Cowgill.

20 Kevin Kouzmanoff Winchester ’02 143

Addition: Yonder Alonso joined the list; he knocked Denny Walling out. (I got to meet Denny at a Waynesboro Generals game back in 2009. The Winchester Royals had their 40th Reunion last summer… I wish more clubs brought back famous alumni!)

  • Jason Kipnis, with his 28 doubles in 2018, passed Johnny Grubb and Brandon Inge
  • Brett Gardner, with 20, passed John Kruk
  • Jon Jay, with 19, passed Chad Tracy and Tom Brookens
