The International Baseball Community (IBC) ranking is a bi-annual recognition of the members of the Baseball Jobs Overseas website who were playing around the globe during the most recent season. For this top pitchers ranking, we take a look at the 2018-19 winter season where most BBJO members were in Australia while some were in New Zealand and Argentina.
Assigning the Australian Baseball League a rank of 10, we ranked all other leagues and from 1-10 in order to measure the strength of performance of each pitcher. We used the following algorithm for the ranking:
(League rank – ERA) x (SO/BB)
Other qualifying criteria:
- Must have been a member of Baseball Jobs Overseas who signed overseas using the website as a tool, directly or indirectly resulting in their 2018-19 signing.
- Must have pitched > 45 innings
Congratulations to all of our members for a great season overseas and for doing a great job at growing the game internationally.
