Hinson’s fastball attracts colleges
Clarke County youth, PJ Hinson, is not only pitching his way into high school stardom with his 86 mph fastball, but he’s pitching himself to colleges all across the country.
While most Clarke Countians are dealing with cold blustery winds, Hinson traveled to Vero Beach, Fla., where he participated in the Baseball Factory 2000 Camp.
The top 50 juniors and seniors in the country are invited to the Baseball Factory camps. College scouts and coaches show up to find the next baseball greats and recruit them with the promises of scholarship and fame.
Hinson was picked for the camp over 2,000 baseball hopefuls nationwide.
Hinson, the ’99 Clarke County High School Varsity MVP, says he has received offers from several noteworthy colleges.
“I’ve heard back from William and Mary, Maryland University, Virginia Tech, and the University of Miami. I’m seriously considering Miami. They were the champions of college ball last year and I want to go where the best ball play is.”
The CCHS junior says he intends to study Business and Marketing as his major in college with a definite focus on baseball.
