Having played soccer and some basketball in the past, Adam’s true forte is on the bump. He was a 9-0 winning pitcher as a freshman (pitched a no-hitter his first game) and despite not pitching as a sophomore due to arm surgery in 2009, it didn’t show at the bat. Called “Adam Bomb” by his teammates, he’s collected nearly a dozen home runs in three seasons. Last year, Adam resumed pitching, went 7-2, and was the winning pitcher for the Saints in the Class 1A title game. The right-hander, who’s able to reach speeds of 90 miles-per-hour with his fastball, has committed to Liberty University to play baseball and major in sports management.
Named All-Mid-Shore Player of the Year in 2008, he was also selected to the Preseason All-State team in 2010 and backed up the hype by making Team Maryland and participating in the Sunbelt Classic tournament in Norman, Oklahoma. Adam carries a 3.0 GPA, and is the eldest son of Jeff and Mandy Parks of Easton. He has a younger brother, 12-year-old Seth, who’s also a highly proficient baseballer.
