Baseball – UH outfielder goes pro

Caleb Ramsey was selected by the Washington Nationals in the 11th round of the Major League Baseball draft on Tuesday.

“I’m ecstatic,” Ramsey said. “This is what I’ve wanted since I was three years old when I started playing.

“I’m just excited to get to play everyday and just worry about baseball — no school, no meetings, no tutoring. I’m so excited for that.”

Ramsey finished with a career batting average of .320 and an .825 OPS at UH.

Ramsey will likely begin his professional career as a Vermont Lake Monster in Class A-Short Season.

Last season, the Nationals selected former-Cougar infielder Blake Kelso in the 10th round.

“I’m hoping at some point I get to jump a level and play with him,” Ramsey said.
