Hunter Renfroe (BT '11-'12 / Mississippi State) signed his contract with the San Diego Padres on Tuesday, inking a deal worth $2,678,000 for the #13 overall draft pick on this year's MLB Draft. 

Renfroe was in San Diego at Petco Park yesterday to give interviews and take some batting practice at the stadium that he hopes to play in someday soon.
 
Renfroe is coming off a great season at Mississippi State as he led the Bulldogs to the Championship Series of the College World Series where they were ultimately defeated by UCLA. Renfroe was named an All-American and was taken 13th by the Padres in the First Year Player Draft.
 
He will start his professional career with the Eugene Emeralds of the Northwest League (Short Season A) in Oregon. Joining him on that team is his Big Train teammate of two years, Michael Bass (BT '11-'12 / UNC-Wilmington). Bass was also drafted by the Padres this year.
 
Renfroe and Bass were both members of the 2011 National Championship Bethesda Big Train. Renfroe is one of only two former players with his jersey number retired by the team and was both the highest pick ever of a former Big Train player and the the highest pick ever to have played in the CRCBL the previous summer.
