The next category for our 2004-2017 Valley League record book is hits. Let’s get right to it…
|11||Stephen Kerr||Charles Town||2014||70|
Here we are again, with Michael Wielansky jumping almost to the top of a list of 14 years. Michael fell one hit short of equaling the best. I can think of at least three times he hammered a pitch but didn’t get a hit…. but of course, he probably got at least three hits when he didn’t have a high exit velocity. Anyway. Congrats to Michael.
Interesting that 11 players are within 11 hits of each other.
