WASHINGTON — Mid-Atlantic Christian University now has two Beaufort County boys to begin the Mustangs’ first baseball season in school history with the signing of Washington High School’s Hunter Hall on Thursday morning.
Hall is a triple threat. He impressed at the plate, on the mound and on defense this spring. He holds a 10-1 record from the bump this season with a 1.55 ERA. He struck out 111 batters in 63.1 innings of work, only allowing 18 runs in that span. Hall held opposing batters to a .159 batting average.
“I’m very excited (to continue my playing career),” Hall said. “I mean, not many people get to (play college ball).
At the plate, Hall led the team in batting average (.431), doubles (12) and was second on the team in RBIs (29).
The versatile fielder also threw out runners on multiple occasions from the outfield and from third base that required perfect throws.
“I’ll be a two-way position player and a Friday night starter,” Hall said his new coach told him.
Hall will play under first year head coach Jason Goetz who was previously an assistant coach at Perquimans High School for five years. Within that span, they had a record of 103-28.
He will be joined by Southside High School shortstop Will Warren at MACU next spring.
“We used to play together when we were younger, so we still know each other pretty good,” Hall said.
Pam Pack head coach Kevin Leggett was excited for Hall to reach the next step of his playing career.
“They’re getting a great player and a great young man,” Leggett said. “He had a great year this year, he worked hard, and I think he’ll be a leader there. It’s a new program so he’s got a good chance to play immediately. They’re lucky to have him.”
Hall’s mother was very proud of her son for doing what he loves to do the most at the next level.
“I am very proud. I mean it’s really unbelievable. He’s always had the love for the game and he got to this point because of all of his hard work,” Zabrina Hall said. “As soon as he was old enough to pick up a ball I knew I had an athlete on my hands.”
Everyone surrounding Hall on Thursday morning showered him with pats on the back, handshakes and words of encouragement, as he starts his journey with the Mustangs next spring.
