League Record Book: Batting Average

Another series I spent time updating during the offseason is the league record book (and I also keep a minor league and major league record book). Please keep in mind that my record books go back to 2004, and that all entries include the playoffs!

We’ll start with batting average:

1 Brad Zebedis Strasburg 2011 0.420
2 Julian Ridings Waynesboro 2012 0.419
3 Luke Greinke Winchester 2007 0.417
4 Gunnar McNeill Staunton 2014 0.414
5 Shane Billings Harrisonburg 2015 0.406
6 Jordan Tarsovich Strasburg 2013 0.404
7 Cory Spangenberg Winchester 2010 0.399
8 Joe Kemp Harrisonburg 2004 0.396
9 Blake Sipe Staunton 2012 0.396
10 Mike Garza Woodstock 2010 0.388

This year, we have one addition: Shane Billings (Harrisonburg), who became the 6th Valley Leaguer to hit .400. Six of the top ten have played organized baseball- Ridings, Greinke, Tarsovich, Spangenberg, Kemp, and Garza. Only one has reached the majors: Spangenberg.
