In a class that seems to keep getting bigger and better, the Pirates added one more piece of the puzzle, as they signed first baseman, Carson Hughes, from Kell High School.
Said Coach Thomas, “Carson was a huge sign for us. He had several Division 1 offers and possible opportunities to play in the SEC or ACC, so feel very fortunate to have a hitter of Carson’s caliber. He swings it from the left side and will bring some serious thunder to the middle of our lineup next season. Additionally, he is very well rounded defensively, as he is a very athletic first baseman. We look forward to seeing Carson in the pinstripes ripping doubles all over The Lake next year.”
Below are some of Carson’s stats and accomplishments:
- 6-4-3 Offensive Player of the Year
- 6-4-3 All Offensive Team
- Four year letter winner at Kell High School
