Nassau, Bahamas –Bluefield State College is very proud to announce that former baseball stand out, Dale Davis, has signed to play professional baseball with the Texas Rangers.
Dale Davis signed at the Maximum Development Sports Academy, where he recently participated in the Maximum Development Sports Academy Pro Day. At least a dozen scouts from 10 Major League Baseball teams attended the event in Nassau, Bahamas. The Texas Rangers was the team to see Dale as a good prospect and made an offer.
Dale is originally from Nassau, Bahamas, but started his collegiate baseball career at Prince George’s Community College in Maryland, where he played 2 years. He earned NJCAA Division III All-Region 20 First Team as a freshman. He led the nation with stolen bases as a sophomore with 63 and a 96.9 stolen base percentage. For his career at PGCC, he had a .421 BA with 71 runs scored and 109 stolen bases.
Dale came to Bluefield State College after his 2 years at PGCC as a Junior transfer. Last year, Dale was finishing up his senior year at Bluefield State College as the starting center fielder. For his career at BSC (2 years), he finished up a .371 BA, 110 hits, 69 runs scored, 22 doubles, 10 triples, 2 homeruns, 51 RBI’s, 10 walks, and had 37 stolen bases out of 44 attempts. He received All-Region during his Junior year and All-ICAA during his senior year.
BSC Head Baseball Coach, Geoff Hunter, says about Dale, “It’s always nice when someone who works hard for something in life is rewarded in the end. During his two years with our baseball program, Dale set a great example for all the other kids on the team. Not only did he have a great work ethic with his preparation and conditioning for baseball, but he also worked hard in the classroom and earned a Civil Engineering Technology degree. Everyone involved with our baseball program here at BSC is extremely proud of Dale and wish him the best as he continues his baseball career at the professional level.”
We are very excited for Dale and his professional career as a baseball player, he was a great student-athlete and role model for Bluefield State College and wish him the best in his future. Go Rangers!
