Robert Hampton

Year Inducted: 2014
Category: Baseball and Football


Hampton played both baseball and football at Catawba from 1934-38, but made his biggest impact on the diamond.

As a pitcher, Hampton finished a stellar career with a 26-9 record and a 2.98 ERA. His 17 consecutive winning decisions is still a school record.

In 1938, Hampton won a then-school record 10 games. That 10 win total was not matched for 50 years and still stands as the third best single-season total in school history. His 26 career wins rank ninth all-time with his 263 strikeouts standing fifth for a career.

Hampton was a switch-hitter and played several positions when not on the mound. He went on to continue his baseball career with the U.S. Army and played in the semi-pro leagues.
