Texarkana, USA - The Texarkana Twins are excited to announce the addition of two outfielders, Hudson Hopkins from Louisiana Tech and Garrett Hastings from University of Kentucky.

Hudson Hopkins is a Junior outfielder for Louisiana Tech, who comes to the Bulldogs after a strong career at Seminole State College. While at Seminole State, Hopkins hit .372 with 15 home runs and 51 RBIs as a sophomore.

Garrett Hastings is a Freshman outfielder for the University of Kentucky.
