Morehead State:

Morehead State graduate and former baseball player J.D. Ashbrook has signed a contract with the Chicago White Sox. Ashbrook has been assigned to Bristol Sox, Chicago’s rookie level (Appalachian League) farm team in Bristol, Va. He will join MSU teammate Drew Lee, who was drafted by the White Sox in the 12th round of the Major League Baseball draft last week.

The Eagles’ leading hitter this past season, Ashbrook capped his career by hitting .432 with 82 hits, 69 runs (a mark that was in the top five nationally), 15 doubles, 18 home runs and 55 RBI. He led Morehead State and ranked in the top three in the Ohio Valley Conference in five offensive categories (batting average, slugging percentage, on-base percentage, runs scored and home runs). He earned First Team All-OVC honors and was a Ping! Baseball Third Team All-American.

Here’s a 4 minute video of J.D. on youtube.
