Hall shines in Shorebirds win
Adam Hall continues to impress for Delmarva Shorebirds after he doubled and singled in a 4-3 win over the Hagerstown Suns in the second game of a doubleheader on Sunday.
After 46 games this season, Hall is batting .320 and has notched 33 runs, 57 hits, two home runs and 14 stolen bases for the Shorebirds, a Class A Minor League team and affiliates of the Baltimore Orioles. The Shorebirds are top of the South Atlantic League Northern.
Hall, 20, became the first Bermudian to turn professional when he signed a $1.3 million contract with the Baltimore Orioles in the Major League Baseball Draft in 2017.
Last term, he compiled a hitting streak of 19 games to set a new record for New York-Penn League team Aberdeen Ironbirds, finishing second in the league with 22 stolen bases.
Hall’s journey in the sport began at the YAO baseball programme at Southside, St David’s.
He moved to Canada aged 12 to pursue his baseball dreams, playing for the London Badgers in Ontario, a youth team that has produced three major-leaguers and countless other professional players.
