Lafayette County product commits to Rebels
It has been well documented how the Commodores won their first ever State baseball championship. Lafayette County swept the #6 ranked team in the country, Petal, in the State Finals to bring home the 4A trophy.
Everyone chipped in for the Commodores title, and Josh certainly played a key role in their success.
The 6' 4", 195 pounder threw a perfect game and a no hitter during the season. Add in the three no hitters that Kevin Parker pitched last season, and that gives the the Rebels five no hitters in all of a weeks time, as Kevin signed with Ole Miss last week.
Just where will the Rebels play their second 2007 verbal?
"They recruited me to pitch, play the corner outfield slots (RF/LF) or 3B. They want me somewhere on the corners," added Josh Thomason.
What does Thomason do well at the plate?
"I am a fastball hitter. I am more of a doubles and HR hitter. I hit it in the alleys."
Josh batted .340 with 7 HR's on the season, but he was just as dangerous on the mound.
"My fastball is in the mid to upper 80's, and I have a decent breaking ball."
Why did Thomason choose Ole Miss?
"That is where I grew up. I know the campus real well, and I really like the coaches. They have had a great team the last few years, and they just keep getting better and better. We plan on taking Ole Miss to that next level, to Omaha."
Who else was recruiting Josh before he choose Ole Miss?
"I was getting some letters from USM and MSU."
Thomason plays for the Mississippi Stars.
Josh marks Ole Miss' 2nd commitment for the '07 class, as Michael Park (RHP) committed last month.
