“Kimbo” makes pro baseball debut for Tampa Bay organization

We have some news this morning for you concerning a former Mount Si baseball pitcher who recently became the first ex-Cat in over 20 years to be drafted in the Major League Baseball draft.

Class of 2010 graduate Josh Kimborowicz, a pitcher who pitched for Mount Si during the 2010 season, his lone season with the Wildcats, signed last week with the Tampa Bay Rays, the team which drafted him in the 19th round of the draft June 8, out of Everett Community College. He was assigned to the Princeton Rays, Tampa Bay’s minor league affiliate in Princeton, West Virginia. The team plays in the “Rookie” level Appalachian League.

Kimborowicz made his pro debut for the Rays in a game Friday night in Danville, VA, against the Danville Braves, Atlanta’s affiliate in the league, and threw two innings of two-hit ball. He gave up a run, which was earned, walked two and struck out two. Danville won the contest on a walk-off hit in the ninth, 3-2.

Princeton opens its home schedule this evening after their game last night in Danville was rained out.
