The Valley Baseball League bills itself as a “Gateway to the Majors” on its website.
So that has to make West Henderson alum Storm Edwards feel good about his selection to Sunday’s VBL All-Star game in Harrisonburg, Va.
Edwards is an outfielder for the New Market (Va.) Rebels and a redshirt freshman at N.C. State.
He is batting .309 for the Rebels (11-17) with 12 RBIs, five home runs, two home runs, two triples and two doubles. Edwards has reached base a team-high eight times after being hit by a pitch.
In all, he has made 22 starts for New Market which is in the Shenandoah Valley of Virginia.
