We are now only eight weeks away from opening day, and the roster is just about complete for the 2018 season. This week’s additions are:
Trey Fortner: RHP, Jacksonville State University. Coach Moss said, “Trey is a big presence on the mound. At
6’3 and long armed, the guy can really get a downhill plane. He has been up to 90 mph and has more to come as he
adds strength his frame. We expect Trey to fill a big role for us and eat a lot of innings. He has a lightning quick
arm and the future for him looks very bright.” Twitter: @TreyFortner
Christian Edwards: RHP, Jacksonville State University. Coach Moss said, “The word intimidating comes to mind when
you look at Christian on the mound. He is a 6’3 physical monster and he has the fastball to back up his presence.
He may arguably have one of the best pitches in the OVL this summer, if not the best. He is a low to mid 90s arm
and may end up throwing even harder very quickly.” Twitter: @C_Edwards3
Remember that the Hoppers will now host the first home game of the season on June 2nd, at Christian County High School. The Hoppers will open the season May 31st with an away game against the Fulton Railroaders.
