The East Carolina baseball team might seem like an under-the-radar team in college baseball, but only to those who aren’t paying attention. The team is currently 11-2, and has the squad ranked 14th in the nation.

What most also probably don’t know is that three former Valley Leaguers are performing very, very well so far, and are a major reason the team is playing so well.

Let’s take a quick look:

  • Connor Norby (Waynesboro 2019) is ripping the cover off the ball, slashing .456/.508/.754 in 57 at-bats, with 14 runs scored, five doubles, four home runs, 16 RBIs, a 6/9 BB/K ratio, and three stolen bases. He’s starting to get some buzz from scouts. Norby was the 12th best hitter in the league in ’19.
  • Thomas Francisco (Charlottesville 2019) is also performing very well; he’s hitting .351/.406/.404 in 57 at-bats, with 15 runs, a home run, 10 RBIs, and a 4/6 BB/K ratio. He was the league’s 7th best hitter in 2019.
  • Seth Caddell (Staunton 2018) is the third of the triumvirate; he’s hitting .306/397/.694 in 49 at-bats, with 11 runs, a double, six home runs, 17 RBIs, and a solid 8/9 BB/K ratio. Caddell played in four games in Staunton in 2018.
