Mets Purchase Contract of Lancaster's Brooks Hall

Lancaster, PA --- The contract of Lancaster Barnstormers’ right-hander Brooks Hall has been purchased by the New York Mets, it was announced today.

Hall, 32, had been scheduled to pitch in Friday night’s Atlantic League game for the Barnstormers against the Charleston Dirty Birds. Instead, he will pitch for the Class AA Binghamton Mets over the weekend.

The Anderson, South Carolina native was coming off consecutive highly successful starts for Lancaster. He carried a no-hitter into the seventh inning at York on July 4th, and left after seven shutout innings, winning 3-1. Five days later, Hall yielded only two hits against the Wild Health Genomes in a 5-1 victory. Overall, the right-hander was 2-1 with a 2.20 ERA. He had allowed only 21 hits and eight walks in 32.2 innings while striking out 32.

It was Hall’s third stint in Lancaster. He won 11 regular season games plus one playoff game for Lancaster in 2018. He returned to the Barnstormers in 2021 from a job in the financial industry for an emergency start in Gastonia and was so impressive that his contract was purchased by the Milwaukee Brewers, his original organization. After two starts at Class AA Biloxi, he was injured and missed the remainder of the season.

Hall originally signed with Milwaukee out of the 2009 draft. He played in their organization for seven years and the Arizona system for one before coming to the Barnstormers in 2018.

“Brooks deserves every bit of this opportunity,” said Lancaster manager Ross Peeples. “I can’t be any happier for him. He came in, proved he was healthy and pitched very, very well for us.”

His is the fourth contract purchased from the Barnstormers this season and the second in the last week.
