Our 12th best hitter in the 2019 season, East Carolina’s Connor Norby, is already the third Waynesboro General on this list, but he also isn’t the last. (He isn’t the last East Carolina Pirate to be listed, either.)

Norby finished tenth in the league in OPS, tied for first in triples, and tied for eighth in runs scored. His best game was on July 24th at Harrisonburg, when he went 3-5, with two runs scored, two triples, and two RBIs. He was named second team All-Valley League at third base after the season.
