Mauldin Senior Cory Thompson Turning Heads on the Diamond

Posted: Updated:

Mauldin -

Mauldin Senior Pitcher/Shortstop, Cory Thompson's fastball has been clocked as fast as 94 miles per hour.  Opponents are hitting just .152 against him so far this season and he sports an ERA of 1.20.  Needless to say, scouts are taking note of his South Carolina baseball signee.

However, Thompson is equally as talented at the plate with a .424 batting average with a couple of home runs.

At the end of the season, Thompson could have a big decision to make between going pro or honoring his commitment to South Carolina.
