Congratulations to two former Catawba Valley Stars - the latest to sign professional contracts:

Brandon Hairston signed with the Schaumburg Boomers of the Frontier League. Brandon was a two year starter for the Stars and a fan favorite. Brandon has great work ethics - on and off the field.

Brian Dice signed with the Florida Marlins after one season playing with the Catawba Valley Stars. After a short 2011 season, being picked up in late July, Brian is starting his first full year with the Marlins organization.

Good luck to both Brandon and Brian!
