Obviously, everything this spring has been cancelled… I mean, everything. So let’s take a quick look at 2019’s #11-15 hitters. Small sample sizes, of course, but here’s how they did:
11. Josh Madole, Harrisonburg and UNC Greensboro: Madole hit .211/.373/.263 in 57 at-bats, with 11 runs scored, one home run, nine RBIs, and an excellent 13/10 BB/K ratio.
12. Connor Norby, Waynesboro and East Carolina: Norby was off to a great start, as he was hitting .403/.439/.500 in 62 at-bats, with 14 runs scored, one double, triple, and home run, ten RBIs, a 4/10 BB/K ratio, and six stolen bases.
13. Sonny DiChiara, Strasburg and Samford: I think it’s safe to say that DiChiara fully recovered from his late-summer ankle injury. In 15 games and 61 at-bats, he hit .328/.378/.475, with nine runs scored, three doubles, two home runs, a ridiculous 21 RBIs, and a 5/12 BB/K ratio.
14. Dylan Menhennett, Front Royal and West Florida: In 13 games and 43 at-bats, Menhennett hit .326/.482/.488, with 11 runs, four doubles, a home run, nine RBIs, and an 8/7 BB/K ratio.
15. Pedro Castellano, New Market and transfer to Southeastern (NAIA): This is nuts, but Castellano was hitting .351/.480/.777 in 94 at-bats, with ten doubles, ten home runs, 29 RBIs, a silly 40 runs scored, and a great 20/12 BB/K ratio. He even stole five bases. The team was 26-1 when baseball was halted.
