You can chalk up another Laredo success story relating to Major League Baseball as one of TAMIU's own was signed as a free agent today. Catcher Sean Smeadley was signed by the Tampa Bay Rays as an undrafted rookie. After a hugely disappointing Junior season, the Phoenix, AZ native had a bounce back year in 2013. He hit .284 while scoring 22 runs and driving in 21. He also bombed two home-runs for the Dustdevils. It wasn't just his contributions at the plate, but his ability to handle the pitching staff and be a rock behind the plate, committing only one error all season, good for a .996 fielding percentage. He is now the fourth player with direct Laredo ties to be drafted or signed by a Major League organization over the past week.
