University of Rio Grande head baseball coach Brad Warnimont has announced the signing of Warren High School’s Gunnar Smith for the 2015 season.

Smith is the son of Chad and Christina Smith of Little Hocking, Ohio. He is the grandson of Marcy Pandy and the late Oscar Smith and Ken and Lola Phillips, all of Beallsville.

Smith, a 6-foot-2, 248-pound catcher, batted .333 with six doubles and 12 runs batted in for head coach Kevin Welsh’s Warriors, who finished 8-11 after a loss to Jackson in the second round of Division II district play.

As a junior, Smith hit .356 and drove in 22 runs in 25 games.

“I’m very excited to get started,” Smith said. “I feel like Rio Grande is the place for me and the place for me to succeed. Playing college baseball is the realization of a dream I’ve had since I was little. I’m very blessed to have the opportunity.”

Smith, who also threw out eight runners attempting to steal, was a first team All-Southeast Ohio Athletic League selection this spring after earning honorable mention All-SEOAL honors in each of the previous two seasons.
