Catcher Stumph Added to Generals Roster

Andrew Stumph - Texas State University

The Victoria Generals of the Texas Collegiate League have announced the addition of catcher Andrew Stumph from Texas State University to the current roster.

 

Stumph, a native of Katy, Texas, just completed his junior year at Texas State where he hit .253 on the season.  He added 10 doubles, three home runs, 28 RBIs, and 19 runs scored as the Bobcats everyday catcher.

 

The Generals were left with a void to fill at the catching position after signee M.P. Cokinos from St. Mary’s University was drafted and signed with the Houston Astros. 

 

Stumph is no stranger to the TCL, having played for the Texas Tomcats back in 2010. 

 

“Andrew was a quality player back when he played for the Tomcats a few years ago, and he’s only gotten better,” commented Blake Koch, Victoria’s general manager.  “He’s really good defensively and can add some pop in the middle of our lineup as well.”

 

Stumph had been nursing a partial torn ligament in his left thumb from an injury he sustained at Texas State in the spring, but has now been cleared to play.

 

In 2011, Stumph earned All-Southland Conference Second Team honors and was named to the Johnny Bench Award watch list.  He finished the season with a .307 batting average, five home runs, 43 RBIs, and 35 runs scored.

 

The signing of Stumph will allow Eric Weiss, who has handled the bulk of the catching duty for the Generals this season, to slide back to his normal position in the outfield.  Stumph and Blue Hybner will now be expected to share the catching responsibilities. 

 

The Generals return home Friday night to host the Acadiana Cane Cutters at 7:05pm at Riverside Stadium.  Friday night is also Faith and Family Night presented by Klean Corp International.  There will be a pregame concert by Christian rock band Table 4 Twelve starting at 5:00pm.  Guest speakers will include Eric Weiss and former Generals head coach Ryan Wagner.

 

Fans can buy tickets and team merchandise at the Generals team store located at 3708 North Navarro, Suite A in the Landmark Shopping Center, online at www.VictoriaGenerals.com, or by calling 361-485-9522.
