Colerain Left-Hander Scott Sebald Signs With Texas Rangers

Scott Sebald didn't hear his name called during Major League Baseball's free agent draft June 9 through 11 but he signed with the Texas Rangers to a minor league contract on Monday.

Scott Sebald -  Lindsey Wilson
The 6' 5" left-handed pitcher graduated from Colerain High School in 2012 and pitched and hit The Lindsey Wilson Blue Raiders to the NAIA World Series this past season.  Sebald started 17 games and earned an 11-3 record. He also recorded a save.  Sebald pitched 121 2/3 innings and struck out a whopping 131 batters while walking just 20 or 1.47 per game. His ERA was 2.74.

Sebald pitched a complete game, his fifth in his last six starts, with 12 strikouts as the Blue Raiders defeated Master's College of California 7-1.  It was the Blue Raiders first ever win in the NAIA World Series.

Sebald was 3-3 with a 1.88 ERA his senior year at Colerain.  He also hit .276 with two home runs and nine RBI.
