WVU Baseball Earns Commitment From 2024 Pitcher Ben Hudson

WVU Baseball picked up a 2024 commitment on Wednesday when right-handed pitcher Ben Hudson announced his decision via Twitter.

Hudson, a right-hander, plays for Shawnee High School (New Jersey) and stands 6-foot-1. A rising senior, he pitched to a 1.64 ERA with 63 strikeouts in 43 innings last season.

Hudson’s repertoire consists of three pitches: a fastball that sits in the mid-to-high 80s, a tight-spinning, 12-6 curveball that tops out around 73 miles per hour, and mixes in a changeup too.

He works on honing his craft with Tread Athletics, a North Carolina-based remote pitching development organization that focuses on building velocity and caters to more than 100 major and minor leaguers, including Mitch Keller of the Pittsburgh Pirates and Josh Hader of the San Diego Padres. Given another year to develop, Hudson could light up the radar guns once in Morgantown.

WVU Baseball head coach Randy Mazey made it clear that the 2024 season will be his last as skipper. The recruits keep coming in, though, a testament to the program he built and successor Steve Sabins looks to inherit.
