In one more late summer supurlative for the 2014 season, the Pirates had two sophomores that are off to play Division 1 baseball, as roommates and best buddies, pitcher Hunter Mitchell and center fielder, JD Perry have both committed to play at Louisiana Tech University.
Hunter served as a conference starter for the Pirates the past 2 seasons in helping lead CVCC to the JUCO World Series. In 2014, Huntbo posted a 7-4 record with a 2.26 ERA, while striking out 58 batters in 71 innings.
JD Perry quite simply, was the best centerfielder in the league. After battling a hamstring injury that sidelined him for several weeks, Perry dominated the ACCC both offensively and defensively. On the year, JD hit .389 with 2 homers, 19 RBI’s and 18 stolen bases.
With addition of Mitchell and Perry, this now makes 14 Pirates headed to the Division 1 level.
