When I was looking up Tyler Kuhn's stats when he was a CBF Honor Roll member a couple weeks ago, I noticed that Adam White is leading the team in hitting. When I looked deeper yet, I found that all five of the West Virginia Mountaineers that played in the Valley League in 2006 were performing well so far this college season.
Here's the update of the Mountaineer Five:
Adam White (Waynesboro 2006):
Hit .359/.427/.438 in the Valley League. He was named to the Valley League All-League team, and Baseball America named him the #8 prospect in the league. He's currently hitting .446/.500/.523 for WVU. He has a 1/1 K/BB ratio, with 6 of each. He has four stolen bases so far. (He's also pictured to the left)
Justin Jenkins (Waynesboro 2006)
Hit .400/.460/.655 for Waynesboro, leading the team with 7 home runs in only 110 at-bats, and leading the league in average. He was named to the All-League team as a utility player. He's currently hitting .403/.464/.710, with 6 doubles, 2 triples, and 3 home runs. He leads the team in doubles and triples, and he's tied in home runs and RBIs. He's also been hit by a pitch a whopping 5 times in 15 games- I'm not sure what's going on there. (That's him to the right)
Tyler Kuhn (Luray 2006)
Hit .363/.394/.561 for Luray, was named the All-League shortstop, and won the league MVP award. He was also named the #4 prospect in the league by Baseball America. He's currently hitting .317/.408/.550 for WVU. He has more walks than strikeouts (9-7) as well, and he's tied with Jenkins with 3 home runs and 19 RBIs. (For Kuhn's picture on this site, go here)
Kenny Durst (Waynesboro 2006)
Over 8 appearances, 7 of them starts, he went 2-2, 5.65, with a 1.55 WHIP and a 9.1 K/9 for Waynesboro. For WVU, he's 3-1, 1.72, with a 1.34 WHIP. His K/9 is 6.9. (He's to the left)
Levi Maxwell (Waynesboro 2006)
Went 4-3, 3.77, with a 1.28 WHIP and 9.2 K/9 (over 8 appearances, 5 of them starts). For WVU, he's 3-0 after three starts, with a 2.37 ERA, 0.95 WHIP, and 8.5 K/9. (He's to the right)
White and Kuhn are sophomores, Durst and Maxwell juniors, and Jenkins is a senior.
