RBIs. A stat of opportunity, to be sure, but who, in the last 11 seasons of Valley League play, drove in the most runs?
Take a look:
|5||Jon Love||Front Royal||2004||48|
|Hunter Newman||Front Royal||2014||44|
Interestingly, three players joined the list from 2014, but none from 2015. (Aldie’s Weber Pike led the league by a pretty wide margin with 42 regular-season RBIs, and he added one more in the playoffs. Therefore, he missed the list by one measly RBI.)
Seeing Gunnar McNeill up there makes me wonder if he’ll get drafted this year (he transferred to Kentucky). Hunter Newman and Joseph Odom are the only current minor leaguers. No one has made the majors.
