RJ Devish – Former Rutgers University Catcher and 2016 Big Ten Batting Champ
RJ Devish is a catcher out of Rutgers University (NCAA I) who in his senior year was the Big Ten Conference Batting Champion with a batting average of .375 against some of the best pitching in NCAA I baseball.
After such a remarkable finish to his college career, RJ was surprised to not get drafted. After brief stints with a few independent teams in the summer of 2016, RJ had some unexpected personal issues that required his full attention, requiring him to “put his baseball career on the back burner” for the first time in his life.
RJ also brings solid defence (1.89 pop time) and a desire to coach youth to any team who signs him. In fact, he is open to a head coaching of a youth team in addition to playing.
RJ’s thoughts on playing overseas:
“I am now ready to pick up where I left off and to finish my career overseas, which was a goal of mine since I have never left the country for baseball.”
Any club in need of a catcher with a high calibre bat who can also contribute to the youth program is encouraged to reach out to RJ with any expression of interest.
