Once again it is time to recognize the members of the Baseball Jobs Overseas website who were playing around the globe during the 2017-18 winter. We already recognized our Top 20 Hitters from this past winter (see ranking here), so now it is time to recognize our top 15 pitchers. 

Assigning the Australian Baseball League a ranking of 10, we had players, coaches and trusted sources rank the six Australian state leagues and from 1-10 in order to measure the strength of performance and thus rank our top 15 pitchers. We used the following algorithm for the ranking:

Player ranking points = League strength – ERA

Other qualifying criteria:

  • Must have had a recent membership with Baseball Jobs Overseas OR are a grandfathered member
  • Must have pitched > 45 innings
  • Must be an import player (ie. not an IBC member who is Australian and playing in their local league)

Congratulations to all of our members for a great season overseas and for doing a great job at growing the game internationally.
