Yes, good eye, Brilliant Reader! Usually this post covers the top players from the entire weekend. However, no former VBLers made the Saturday list, and D1baseball.com has not published the Sunday list. (And since I’m in the middle of transferring old stuff from the old league website to the new (to be launched hopefully within a week or so), I don’t have time to cull the boxscores myself. So here we are!
Friday Top Performers
- Cole McConnell, Louisiana Tech (Front Royal 2021): 3-4, four runs, four RBIs, walk, double, home run
- Peyton Wigginton, Middle Tennessee (Staunton 2018): Nine shutout innings, two hits, three walks, 10 K’s, win (Game Score: 90)
- Jacob Cravey, Samford (Strasburg 2021): Eight innings, five hits, one run, no walks, seven K’s, win (GS: 75)
