The New York Mets selected outfielder Ross Adolph out of University of Toledo in the 12th round of the MLB Draft, and shipped him to the Brooklyn Cyclones — the short-season Single-A (New York-Penn League) affiliate of the Mets – to start his professional baseball career.

Adolph, 20, is hitting .263 with one homer run, 17 RBI, three doubles, five triples and six stolen bases in 99 at-bats in 27 games.

Adolph slugged 15 round trippers in his junior year with the Rockets.

A natural athlete, Adolph was as a multi-sport star at Van Buren High School in Ohio. He was a four-year letter winner in baseball and football and was a two-year letter winner in basketball.

In addition, Adolph garnered First-team All-Ohio, All-Region, and All-Conference player awards in baseball in 2015 after hitting .595 with seven doubles, seven triples and three home runs, and twenty-six stolen bases.

Watch Adolph dunk a gifted double in the outfield in a Cyclones’ 3-1 defeat to the Lowell Spinners (Boston Red Sox) on July 20th at MCU Park.
