Harold Earls

May 8, 2014

Junior infielder Harold Earls will provide fans an inside look at the Army baseball team throughout the 2014 season.

Earls, from Cumming, Ga., is a two-year letterwinner. He was the Patriot League Rookie of the Year after his stellar freshman campaign and followed that be being named to the 2013 Patriot League All-Tournament Team.

With graduation upon us, yesterday our team voted on the Team’s MVP and other prestigious awards. I, however, felt a lot of prestigious awards and superlatives were left out, so I added a few of my own.
