League Record Book: Saves

Let’s take a look at the next category for pitchers- saves! (Highest totals since the 2004 Valley League season, by the way)

1 Adam Zipko New Market 2013 18
2 Chris Dennis Winchester 2004 15
3 Derrik Lutz Front Royal 2004 14
4 Brandon Dickson New Market 2005 13
Joel Brookens Front Royal 2007 13
Jimmy Stanley Waynesboro 2007 13
Shawn Griffith Fauquier 2008 13
8 Bobby Hernandez Staunton 2007 12
9 Chris Fessler Harrisonburg 2005 11
Daniel Bridgeman Strasburg 2013 11

Adam Zipko sure took care of the #1 spot back in 2013, didn’t he? He has 20% more than Chris Dennis.

One major leaguer on the list- Brandon “Cotton” Dickson, who pitched for the St. Louis Cardinals in 2011 and 2012, and has also pitched professionally in Japan the last four years. (I would love to interview Brandon someday…)

Chris Dennis, Shawn Griffith, Bobby Hernandez, and Chris Fessler have all pitched in affiliated ball, but do not any longer.

Nick Pupura, from Covington, led the 2016 Valley League with 10 saves, by the way.
