Major League Record Book: Career RBIs

RBIs, while a stat of opportunity, is still a stat that ATVL covers….

2006-2018
1 Dan Murphy Luray ’05 641
2 Jason Kipnis Covington ’06-7 464
3 Yonder Alonso Luray ’06 389

10 Collin Cowgill Covington ’05 57
11 Eric Campbell Luray ’06 44

Addition: Tyler White drove in 42 runs for the Astros in 2018, and jumped all the way to #7

Changes: Tommy La Stella, with 19 RBIs, passed Ryan Schimpf, who “only” had 2. What would I give to have 2 major league RBIs? Hmmm. (I realized a few years ago that if I had ever been in professional baseball, it would have been in the late 1980’s-early 1990’s… right in the middle of the steroid age. What choices might I have had to make? Maybe it’s better that the tryout in Allentown ended up the way it did…)
