Southern Miss signed third baseman Josh Fields of Arkansas-Fort
Smith Junior College
to a national letter of intent Tuesday.
Fields, a 5-foot-11, 185 pounder, is the seventh signee this
spring for coach Corky Palmer and 11th overall in the recruiting class.
Fields hit .364 in 61 games last season with 13 home runs,
18 doubles and 64 runs batted in at Fort Smith.
He also pitched, picking up six saves and 15 strikeouts in
14 2/3 innings.
Palmer said Fields could see playing time right away.
