Milford standout 1st baseman Brad Hall picks Miami University

MILFORD,OH (FOX19) - Milford first baseman Brad Hall will be heading north to Oxford to play for the Redhawks next season.

The two-time Eastern Cincinnati Conference Player of the Year announced the news that he will play for Miami University via Twitter on Saturday.

Hall hit .424 with a .478 on-base percentage in his senior season with the Eagles. He was forced from pitching/third base to first base after undergoing Tommy John Surgery during the high school baseball offseason.

"The first time I got back I was scared," Hall told FOX19 NOW Sports about his return from the injury. "Throwing was how I tore my UCL. It was like the greatest feeling and being able to play like I did in the past."

A 2016 First-Team All-State selection, Hall helped lead the Eagles to a first place tie in the ECC and a birth in the Regional Finals.

"Brad was an integral part of four consecutive ECC championships, three district appearances and one regional championship appearance," said Milford coach Tom Kilgore.

Hall expects to play a utility role early in his career at Miami, and anticipates playing the outfield and infield more as his arm heals.

The University of Cincinnati had also offered Hall.
