All Things Valley League

A website dedicated to the Valley League, a wood-bat summer league in Virginia's Shenandoah Valley

About the Author

Dugout shot

The writer for this site, John Leonard (he/him), loves baseball in all forms, but especially the Valley League. He has way too many spreadsheets and lists involving this league- ask him about them sometime. He added a new job to his life in the summer of 2019; the Media Relations Director for… wait for it… the Valley League. He has two adult daughters and one long-suffering, supportive wife. In June 2019, he and his wife moved back to Harrisonburg after living the previous eight years in Nairobi, Kenya.

All Things Valley League covers anything and everything about the Valley League, a summer wood-bat collegiate league in the beautiful Shenandoah Valley in Virginia. It was originally started in November, 2006, over on Typepad. In February, 2011, Leonard took a break, ostensibly because he was moving to a different continent with his family. In August, 2012, the idea was resurrected on Facebook (while the writer was waiting to travel to South Africa for back surgery). In April of 2014, the blog was reborn.

  1. John – Thought that was you I saw in Hagerstown! Took me a while to place the face, and then once I did, I guess you had already left the ballpark! I was there in between games. You coming back for any more games in Hagerstown or Frederick?
