Marietta alum Christian Herstine signs with the New York Yankees.

He was in Gary of the American Association for oh...about 2 weeks.

6-4, strong built kid, great velocity, solid second pitch, 2nd in D3 in Ks, former DI recruit, honestly no idea how the scouts missed him.

Could see him as a very good reliever.

Now the 4th MC pitcher in the last 15 years to be overlooked by the draft and signed later. Herstine, Williams, DeMark and DeSalvo. It's like MC gets overlooked because of geography or something. 3 of those guys were absolute no doubters as pro prospects.
