Gordo High School senior Ben Capps signed with the University of Alabama in Huntsville to play baseball. In high school, Capps played third base and pitched, but his focus will be pitching at UAH.
Capps was named the 2021 Class 4A Pitcher of the Year. He finished the season with a 9-1 record, 0.77 earned run average and 77 strikeouts. He also had a record-setting baseball season with 44 consecutive scoreless innings.
Capps said his main reason for choosing UAH was because it felt like home.
“It felt like a place that I would love to spend the next four years of my life, academically, and athletically,” said Capps.
