Today the Mumford Suns officially confirmed that they have landed a deal with former Free Agent Kevin Hammond.  Late last night there were rumors that the Suns were negotiating a deal to possibly replace Trevor Swan.  "Trevor and I were Frieda of the field," commented Manager JT Williams.  "So his departure is a tough one."

Hammond, a .125 hitter in only 2 games, will look to improve on that in 2012.  When asked why the team went after Hammond, Williams responded "I feel like his personality will be good for the Suns.  He brings good chemistry to the clubhouse which is what I am looking for."  With the deal Hammond will now take on a starting role just a few days before Opening Day.
