The middle infielder from Peabody, Mass., Band is primarily a second baseman but has also played shortstop. This will be the second season in professional baseball for Band as last season he spent time with the Alexandria Aces and the Fort Worth Cats in the United League. For the 2013 season, Band hit a combined .310 with a .444 on base percentage.
“Josh had a very successful first year in pro ball hitting .300 in the United League,” said CornBelters Field Manager Brooks Carey. “He is an exceptional defensive player that will give us depth in the infield.”
