Southwest baseball coach Johnny Ray has announced the signing of left-handed pitcher Adam Hampton from Cordova High School to a national letter of intent.

”Adam is a very hard working young man with tremendous upside,” said Ray. “He had a fantastic summer and progressed into a very fine pitcher. I expect Adam to come in and bid for mound time right away.”

Hampton, who played for former Saluqi baseball player Mike Vanaman at Cordova High, posted a 4-2 record with a 3.96 earned run average his senior season. In the spring of 2005, Hampton helped lead Cordova to a 28-10 record and the district and regional championships. This summer, he had an outstanding 9-1 pitching record while playing for the Memphis Tigers’ Connie Mack team.
