BA’s Spring signs commitment to Jones College baseball

Brookhaven Academy senior infielder Brady Spring recently signed a letter-of-intent with the Jones College baseball program.

Spring finished his junior season batting .377 with a team high 11 doubles and earned a spot on The Daily Leader All-Area team. He also hit two home runs and drove in 19 runs while scoring 26 runs. An MAIS All-State selection, Spring made six pitching appearances and struck out 16 while posting a 2-0 record. 

Former BA slugger O’Neill Burgos will be a sophomore for Jones this season and Enterprise alum Hunter Richardson is a freshman for the Bobcats. The son of former Brookhaven High head coach and current BA assistant Randy Spring, the younger Spring has literally grown up on a baseball diamond. His former coach Tyler Parvin says that’s part of what makes him great. 

“Brady has an extremely high baseball IQ,” said Parvin. “That’s one reason why he’s such a good hitter. He probably taught me as much over three years as I taught him. It was an honor and a privilege to get to coach him alongside his Dad.”
