200 Home Wins at Home in League Play
The Sox now have 200 league wins at home...46 in the Pacific International League and 154 in the West Coast League. On their home diamond they are 200-103 against league foes.
With the 3-0 victory last night the AppleSox recorded their 58th shutout...39 in league competition, 2 in playoffs and 17 in nonleague. It was their 39th at home and third against Corvallis.
Drawer Full of Sox
With Shaun Vetrovec playing for the first time last night the AppleSox have now used 37 players in the first 21 days of the season. The 37 ties the mark set last year for most players in one season. The number of players has increased in recent times. During the first nine campaigns the average was 28.2 players per season. Over the last six seasons the number is 34.8.
And this season all 37 young men are new to the AppleSox program, no players are back from previous years. This is the second time the club has had no multiyear players. It also happened in 2012. The 2005 squad set the record for most returnees with 10. While the average number of players on the roster has increased the last few years, the number of returning players has done the opposite. In the second through seventh seasons an average of 6.8 players were back for a second (or more) summer with the team. The last eight years that number is 2.3.
Wenatchee has had 47 players spend more than season in the Apple Capital. The record holder is John Gebbers who spent four seasons here from 2000 to ‘03. Ten individuals have donned the red, white and blue during three seasons, and there have been 36 two-year players.
