SAN DIEGO, Calif. - The University of San Diego's left-handed junior pitcher, Nate Boman, has signed a contract to play with the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim organization Thursday morning, forgoing his junior season at USD.
"We wish him good luck," said USD head coach Rich Hill. "We would like to thank Nate (Boman) for his contribution to the USD baseball program."
Boman, who did not throw a single pitch in 2006, was a ninth round selection of the Angels and signed a contract with the team after an outstanding summer playing in the Cape Cod League for the YD Redsox team. He helped lead the team to the Cape Cod Championship, as he posted a record of 3-2 with an ERA of 2.94, while ringing up 38 strikeouts during the summer.
Boman leaves USD with a career record of 8-2 and a career ERA of 2.27, which is a career-best at USD. Boman also is also ranked 10th for single-season ERA of 2.26 that he set during the 2004 season.
