Conor Sczcerba, who played baseball at Polk State College, has signed with the Rockford (Ill.) Aviators of the Frontier League.
"I'm excited to see Conor hook up with a professional team," said Al Corbeil, Polk State's head baseball coach.
"Conor played on our 2011 and 2012 conference championship ball clubs. He was instrumental on our 2012 World Series team and still holds numerous school records, including stolen bases (40) and runs scored (72) in a season. He had a great college career and is very deserving of the opportunity."
Aviators Manager James Frisbie said, "Conor comes highly recommended to me by Al Corbeil. We look for Conor to compete for an infield spot and to add speed to our ball club."
"I talked to a lot of guys in the Frontier League, and it sounds like a great opportunity," said Sczerba.
After Polk State, he continued his athletic and academic career at Florida Southern College, where he started at second base for two seasons.
While at Florida Southern he was named a Rawlings/ABCA NCAA Division-II Gold Glove winner.
He finished his two-year career at Florida Southern with a .288 batting average, five home runs, and 41 RBI. He also stole 27 bases in 31 attempts.
