Myrtle's Cummings signs to play for Northeast

By NEMCC Media Relations

Northeast Mississippi Community College head baseball coach Kent Farris has signed Beau Cummings from Myrtle High School to join the Northeast baseball program for the 2010-11 season.

Cummings, who plays for former Northeast baseball player Robert Gordon at Myrtle, excels not only on the diamond but the hardwood as well for the Hawks.

A New Albany native, Cummings, batted .411 as a junior and has increased his average almost 70 points his senior year.

Currently, the Myrtle senior is batting .476 and is perfect on the mound for the Hawks.

Cummings sports a 2-0 record for Myrtle and has a sub-one earn run average (0.98).

When not pitching, Cummings also clocks time in the outfield.

Cummings rarely steps off the diamond and has a veteran of both the Cotton States Baseball League in New Albany as well as the Mississippi Select Baseball League’s Northwest Mississippi Dealers that play during the fall.

Cummings, a 6-4, 185-pound athlete, was named to the all-division team for baseball as well as basketball and garnered an all-state selection for his prowess on the hardwood.
