Former Titan, Tartan makes good

4870-Wes Roemer.jpg

Wes Roemer, the former standout baseball pitcher for the Glendora Tartans and more recently, the Cal State Fullerton Titans, pitched in an intrasquad game Wednesday for his new team, the Arizona Diamondbacks. Roemer was the 50th draft pick last year and went to the National League Diamondbacks in the first round, supplemental.

This was the first time Wes has pitched against major league hitters in his still young career.

Unofficial results: one inning, one unearned run, the outs came on ground balls and fly balls (no strikeouts). And of course, what Roemer is known for, his control — no walks. MLB.com’s story said the three young D’back pitchers, including Roemer, “threw the ball well.”

Most likely, Roemer will pitch in camp for the Diamondbacks and then return to the minor leagues in April.

As a CSUF Titan, Roemer was a 2-time All-American and won the NCBWA Player of the Year award. In 2006, he threw 62.5 innings without giving up a walk.
