Ah, the big one. Folks tend to like home runs, unless they are stodgy old-timers who believe home runs are ruining major league baseball.
But still, here is the list of the most home runs in one Valley League season since 2004:
|2||Jon Love||Front Royal||2004||16|
|Steve McQuail||Front Royal||2009||16|
Aidan Nagle joined another list- here he’s tied for sixth. I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again; Central High School downplays home runs (this year by about 52%). Imagine how many he might have had if he played in a different home park!
Major Leaguers: Collin Cowgill
Current Minor Leaguers: Joseph Odom
Previous Minor Leaguers: Steve McQuail, Jimmy Yezzo, Zach Sterry, Marcus Nidiffer, Ryan Durrence, Shaun Cooper, Jonathan Griffin, Tyler Townsend
No Minor Leagues: Jon Love, Brandon Murray, Jeremy Terni, Brandon Quaranta
Still in College: JD Mundy, Aidan Nagle
Covington and Winchester each have four, while Waynesboro and Front Royal have two each. Woodstock, Harrisonburg, Luray, and Strasburg all have one, while New Market, Staunton, Charlottesville, and Purcellville don’t have any.
