Canes South Showcase 2019 1B/LHP and Smoky Mountain (NC) product James Hinson has committed to Catawba Valley Community College and Head Coach Paul Rozzelle. During the Summer 2018 season James played on the Canes South Showcase 17 team, under the guidance of South Showcase 17 Head Coach Mike Andress. Coach Andress had this to say about Hinson. “James is the type of player every coach longs to have on the team. He is athletic, gritty and versatile. His primary position is First Base, but he can toe the rubber with multiple pitches and arm slots. He also plays the outfield with an intuitive feel and sense of urgency on every play. James is equally dominate as a left handed power hitter. He is a disciplined hitter who consistently hits with massive power to all sides.” We want to congratulate James and the Williams family on his commitment to Catawba Valley Community College.
