Hitter and Pitcher of the Day, Tuesday June 4

All five games were played last night, and there was a huge display of hitting! This feels unusual, as most of these college hitters don’t have much experience with wood bats, and it takes some time to catch up to the pitching. Not so in the 2019 Valley League season so far!

Results

  • Purcellville 6, Front Royal 1
  • Staunton 17, Strasburg 1
  • Charlottesville 12, Winchester 7
  • Woodstock 8, New Market 3
  • Covington 9, Waynesboro 4

Hitter of the Day

As mentioned above, there were quite a number of explosions at the plate last night, so the selection was pretty tough. But ATVL has settled on Charlottesville’s Dan Harwood, from Wooster, who went 4-4, with a run, walk, double, home run, and 5 RBIs. He’s now 5-8 on the summer so far, and hit 424/538/648 with 18 doubles in 165 at-bats this spring. Looks like this kid can really hit!
