Ex-Terp Outfielder White Pitches in Minor League Game

Charlie White did several great things during his time at the University of Maryland. He was solid both in center field and at the plate, and he stole the most bases in school history. However, he was not a pitcher, which made the scene in Boise quite odd on Friday.

White picked up the win and pitched three innings for the Cubs A-affiliate, the Boise Hawks. He also struck out four batters. Read more about Ex-Terp Outfielder White Pitches in Minor League Game

Three more Maryland baseball players signed professional contracts this week, as Blake Schmit, Charlie White, and Ben Brewster inked their rookie contracts.

Jake Drossner and Tayler Stiles made South Carolina hitters look foolish early, Maryland hitters got big hits all night, and the Terps advanced to the Super Regionals in one of college baseball’s rowdiest venues on Sunday night. After handing South Carolina their first postseason loss in Columbia since 2002 on Saturday, the Terps beat the Gamecocks by a final of 10-1.

South Carolina scored first on the night, as they got to Jake Drossner in the bottom of the first on a Marcus Mooney RBI double. After that, it was all Maryland. South Carolina started their closer Joel Seddon on the mound, and he gave the Gamecocks a gutsy effort, but it was not enough. In the top of the fourth, Blake Schmit gave the Terps a lead with a 2-run single to score Charlie White and LaMonte Wade.

Today, the Terps also pulled through with Shawaryn on the mound, defeating regional-host South Carolina by a score of 4-3.  Read more about Maryland Shocks South Carolina 4-3, One Win Away from Supers
