#12 Hitter: Connor Norby, Waynesboro

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.)

In the Valley League to get reps after a freshman year that saw him bat only 23 times, Norby showed the ability to both drive the ball and run well:

VBL G AB R H 2B 3B HR RBI BB K SB CS Avg OBP SLG
2019 30 102 31 34 2 4 4 18 13 17 2 0 0.333 0.425 0.549
Play 2 9 1 2 1 0 0 1 1 0 0 0 0.222 0.300 0.333

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.

His stats at East Carolina:

G AB R H 2B 3B HR RBI BB K SB CS Avg OBP SLG
2019 20 23 3 4 0 0 1 6 2 8 0 0 0.174 0.269 0.304

Watch him earn a larger role for the Pirates this coming spring!
