The Fayetteville SwampDogs are pleased to announce the signing of catcher Brennan Fontenot for the 2018 season.
Fontenot, who comes to Fayetteville from Greenwell Springs, Louisiana, is in the third year of a superb career at Spring Hill College. After slashing .359/.495/.609 with eight homeruns and 45 RBIs, Fontenot was named to the Southern Intercollegiate Athletic Conference All-Conference team in 2017. The 5-11, left-handed hitting slugger has looked every bit as good this year, posting a .340/.432/.616 slash line, eight home runs and 43 RBI's. Starting every game for the Badgers, Fontenot has slotted in the outfield and at designated hitter on days off behind the plate.
Fontenot figures to add serious pop the SwampDogs' roster as the team pursues its goal of a Petitt Cup. The season kicks off at J.P. Riddle Stadium on Tuesday, May 29.
