Southern Miss signs JUCO standout

Southern Miss Head Baseball Coach Corky Palmer has announced the signing of Josh Fields, a 5-11, 185-pound third baseman/right-hand pitcher from Arkansas – Ft. Smith Junior College in Ft. Smith, Ark., , to a letter of intent and grant in aid for the 2007-08 academic year.

“I’m glad that Josh has signed with Southern Miss and will be joining our program,” Palmer said. “He is an excellent hitter, who can hit for average and for power from the right side. He covers a lot of territory at third base, has a good arm and doesn’t make mistakes. He comes from a good program, and has a chance to see playing time right away.”

This marks the seventh signee of the spring signing period and 11th signee overall for the program.
