JMU Freshman Showalter Signs With Staunton

JMU freshman RHP Justin Showalter, a product of nearby Turner Ashby H.S. has signed to play with the Braves.

Showalter helped pitched the T.A. Knights to a state title last year and was named the Virginia 3A Player of the Year.

Here’s what JMU head coach Marlin Ikenberry had to say about Showalter. “Justin Showalter is a local product, pitching at Turner Ashby. He’s an upper-80s right-hander with plus movement on his fastball and he throws a plus slider. We look forward to having Justin as a back-end of the bullpen guy for us.”
