2011 MINK League Champions the St. Joseph Mustangs announced today the signing for the 2012 season, outfielder Jordan Hurtt. Hurtt will vie for the starting center field position.
Hurtt may be the fastest Mustangs player ever, as he has been timed in the 60-yard dash at 6.2 seconds. A switch hitter, Hurtt can play multiple outfield positions.
Hurtt is the step-son of Kansas City Royal's Hall Of Famer, Frank White. "When Frank called inquiring about the possibility of a spot for Jordan, we wanted to try and accommodate him. As it turns out, Jordan is one heck of a player, that can fill many roles on our ball club," General Manager Rick Muntean said.
Hurtt will play at Longview Community College this spring, before joining the Mustangs for the 2012 season.
