Video: Brother Martin’s Sully Stringer signs with Louisiana Tech
Fourteen months after announcing his verbal commitment, Brother Martin first baseman Sully Stringer made it official Wednesday night.
The 6-foot-3, 220-pound Stringer signed a national letter-of-intent with Louisiana Tech at a large gathering of family and friends where his playing days began, at Little Farms Playground in River Ridge.
Stringer’s name could be found on a couple of the championship banners hanging throughout the gymnasium. Now, he hopes to finish his prep career with a championship before heading to a program in Ruston that earned a top 16 national seed and an NCAA regional host in 2021.
“It was a sure fit from the start,” Stringer said of LA Tech. “Everything there is awesome.”
Stringer can play first base or the corner outfield positions and has even spent time behind the plate. In addition to his time at Brother Martin, he has been a member of the state champion 2017 Eastbank Little League team and the Louisiana Knights program.
