- Our additions, as you can plainly see, are New Market’s Jackson Lancaster, Strasburg’s Chad Fairey, and Winchester’s Austin Bulman. Lancaster broke into the top ten!
- Winchester has five entires; Covington has four; New Market has three; Waynesboro, Front Royal, Woodstsock, Staunton, and Harrisonburg all have two; Strasburg and Purcellville have one. Charlottesville is shut out.
- Five of these guys actually reached the highest level of baseball- Huff (who just got banned from twitter yesterday), Williamson, Odom, Cowgill, and Michaels.
- Ten more played in the minors- Sterry, Townsend, Van Houten, Asche, Yezzo, McQuail, Ridings, Nidiffer, Mundy and Esquerra.
- Next up is runs scored!
Thank you for all the work you do in keeping track and compiling all of this for these guys! It’s a part of their lives that they will be proudly showing to their kids one day. No doubt one of the best experiences in our son’s baseball career!
