ARLINGTON, Texas -- Former UTA baseball standout Quintin Rohrbaugh has signed a professional contract with the Vallejo Admirals in the Independent League Pacific Association.
Rohrbaugh, a native of Grand Prairie, Texas, began his professional career with a 1-for-5 game for the Admirals on Tuesday night. The Pacific Association consists of teams in Northern California.
The 5-foot-10, 195-pound right-handed hitter had a prolific two-year career with the Mavs after joining the roster from Weatherford Community College. Rohrbaugh started all 113 games of his UTA career, hitting .322 (141-for-438) with 22 doubles, six triples, six homers and 73 RBI, stealing 11 bases and owning a .401 on-base percentage. As a junior, Rohrbaugh earned all-conference honors after hitting .343 with 13 doubles, four triples, two homers and 35 RBI.
With Rohrbaugh beginning his professional career, five members of the 2017 Sun Belt Conference Western Division Championship team have moved into pro baseball. Austin Gardner (Yankees), Jakob Hernandez (Phillies), Brady Cox (Royals) and Kadon Simmons (Brewers) are currently in affiliated baseball in their pro debuts.
