Reds sign Drew Stubbs!
I have been a regular reader for a while, not much of a poster. I didn't see this posted anywhere so I thought I would post it.
Reds sign top draft pick
CINCINNATI (AP) -- Former University of Texas outfielder Drew Stubbs signed with the Cincinnati Reds on Wednesday, a week after he was selected eighth overall in the amateur draft. Terms of the deal were not disclosed.
The 21-year-old Stubbs, one of five finalists for Golden Spikes Award as the nation's top amateur baseball player, hit .342 with 12 home runs and 58 RBIs this season as a junior for the Longhorns.
He was picked in the third round by Houston in 2003 after his senior season at Atlanta (Texas) High School, but chose to attend Texas. He started in center field all three seasons for the Longhorns, helping them win the NCAA title last year.
