Central Methodist University head baseball coach Nate Breland announced Monday the signing of outfielder Patrick Norris (Indianapolis, Ind.).

Norris just finished his sophomore season at Danville Area Community College in Illinois, and appeared in 53 games. Norris hit .312, with an on-base percentage of .372, and a slugging percentage of .407. He also finished with a homerun, 28 RBI’s, and 16 stolen bases.
