The CVCC Baseball Team had two more players make their college decisions on where they will play baseball next season, as catcher Neal Chambless will sign with Georgia Southwestern University, while pitcher, Sammy Altman, will ink his deal with Case Western Reserve University.
Neal Chambless is having a stellar sophomore year with the Pirates, as he is hitting .308 with 6 doubles and 14 RBI’s. Chambless, a graduate of Harris County High School in Hamilton, Georgia, has been an absolute shutdown defensive workhorse behind the plate, as he has thrown out 14 of 21 attempted base stealers at an astonishing 67% caught stealing rate, while fielding .995 on the year, as he has committed only 1 error in 200 chances. Neal will graduate this May with his Associates Degree at CVCC and currently holds a 3.48 GPA.
Sammy Altman is, without a doubt, a team favorite. Although he has appeared in only 5 games for the Pirates, he is averaging a strikeout per inning and holds a 2:1 strikeout to walk ratio. He is a coaches dream, as he is willing to assist the team and coaching staff in any way needed. Sammy will also graduate this May with his Associates degree and holds a 3.31 GPA.
