Continuing the theme of former Valley Leaguers named to D1Baseball.com‘s top players at each position lists, today we have third basemen, a list that contained one former VBLer. (By the way, click to see the catcher, first baseman, and second baseman list. There were no players on the shortstop list.)
Kevin Madden (Charlottesville 2019) is #49 on the third baseman list. A transfer from Virginia Tech to South Carolina, the senior hit .313/.361/.418 for the Hokies in 2021, with nine doubles and four home runs. He will join former VBL MVP Andrew Eyster in the South Carolina lineup this spring.
By the way, Madden went 21-64 for Charlottesville in 2019, with an excellent slashline of .328/.421/.453, along with eight doubles and 8/6 BB/K.
