League Record Book: RBIs

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:

1 Jimmy Yezzo Winchester 2012 62
2 Jeremy Terni Winchester 2004 54
Kurt Davidson Waynesboro 2007 54
4 Gunnar McNeill Staunton 2014 52
5 Jon Love Front Royal 2004 48
Jermaine Berry Staunton 2012 48
7 Blake McDade Staunton 2009 47
8 Joseph Odom Winchester 2012 46
9 Michael McClellan Waynesboro 2014 45
10 Jamie McOwen Luray 2006 44
Jonathan Griffin Luray 2010 44
Dodson McPherson Harrisonburg 2011 44
Ryan Sullivan Covington 2012 44
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.
