Maryland's energetic center fielder Charlie White has signed a contract with the Chicago Cubs organization and will forgo his senior year at Maryland. White was signed in the 29th round last year by the NY Yankees but elected to come back. He was a red shirt junior this year. Although his batting average and stolen base totals dipped a bit, White's defense moved from very good to exceptional. He was selected in the 21st round of this year's draft by his home town Chicago Cubs. White was the first outfielder selected by the Cubs this year, in essence almost guaranteeing that he'd sign.
I wish Charlie the best in his new career and thank him for the instrumental part he played in bringing Maryland to baseball's upper echelon.
