Danville Dan, Wes Roemer (2005 – Cal State Fullerton) has been invited to Spring Training with the Arizona Diamondbacks, bringing the number of Dans invited to major league camps to eight.
As a sophomore at Cal State Fullerton, the first man to draw a walk off Roemer was the 253rd man he faced – that walk came on April Fool’s day. While with the Dans, Roemer’s 1.59 ERA was 2nd in the league behind Ryan Byrd (Dans – LSU). Byrd finished the year with a 1.91 era, on a team that finished in 1st place at 34-10 under Head Coach Jamie Sailors.
Wes was drafted by Arizona in the first round of the 2007 draft.
