No changes in this one, either, since 2011!
|1||Tucker Pryor||Front Royal||2008||79.0|
|2||Joshua MacDonald||New Market||2005||76.0|
|6||Lee Tabor||New Market||2005||71.0|
|8||Ross Fetterly||New Market||2007||69.2|
Granier and Tabor are the only pitchers on this list that played pro ball. I think this list shows how baseball has changed over the past decade or so- pitch counts and limiting innings is very important to coaches at pretty much every level. Anyone remember when Kerry Wood’s high school coach had him throw both games of a doubleheader- or something like that? I don’t think that would happen in many high school programs these days, or college programs, either.
By the way, Hayden McCutcheon led the 2015 Valley League with 46 1/3 innings- a far cry from even the last number on this list.
Any thoughts, brilliant readers?
