PERKINSTON — Mississippi Gulf Coast catcher Logan McGrew has signed a letter of intent to play Division I baseball at Southern Miss.


McGrew batted .358 with two home runs and 30 RBI for the Bulldogs last year. He slugged .495, and the Gulf Coast pitching staff had a 3.70 ERA.


"The thing that makes him so good is he's an extension of our coaching staff on the field," Gulf Coast coach Rodney Batts said. "He's a leader behind the plate. That's not just a position you can stick anybody there and be able to do it. The intangibles he brings to our pitching staff are immeasurable."


McGrew, who went to Sumrall High School, is headed to a Golden Eagles team that won 50 games in 2017 and hosted a regional.


"I went up there on a visit and talked with the coaches, saw the facilities," McGrew said. "Everything is top notch. I kind of had the same feeling as when I came down here on my visit two years ago."


Batts said the Gulf Coast staff loves throwing to McGrew, who has a great grasp of his pitchers' strengths and weaknesses. That ability has improved during his time at Perkinston.


"I've learned how the speed of the game increases with every level," McGrew said. "They've taught me a lot about the game of baseball and a lot about life."
