Cashion, Chapman sign with Martin-Methodist (06/25/10)
Martin Methodist head baseball coach Kelly Bratton replenished his RedHawk roster with two Marshall County High School standouts Wednesday, signing Matthew Cashion and Ethan Chapman to scholarships. Bratton said, "I'll tell you what, I am originally from Columbia and I have been around this area all my life and Marshall County has always had good baseball. Growing up, that is always who we had to go through to get to the next level. Baseball in this area is very good. We come over every year looking at the talent just seeing what is available. I watched these two guys, saw some ability and some talent there, and wanted to get them over here. We want to keep that Marshall County connection going." Chapman, recruited by the RedHawks to be a pitcher and possibly play another position on the field said about his opportunity, "It feels good, I want to keep going. Playing at the level we play here at Marshall County will help us at Martin-Methodist. Playing more talent gets you better every time."
