  4. Brandon Miller says:

    Hunter played for both Will Sanchez and myself on Stars this year. If you’re interested in signing Hunter and need a reference absolutely contact me.

    Hunter is a great teammate who can hit line to line with incredible power. He’s all hustle and he will absolutely never give up on his teammates, coaches, and sponsors. I have been pitching him all over the country this off-season because I couldn’t take him with me to Precision. Someone needs to sign this guy, he will NOT let you down.
