Hunter Renfroe launches first career professional home run

It didn't take the former MSU All-American OF very long to blast his first professional home run.

I think it's safe to say that Hunter Renfroe is having himself a nice little summer.

First, the MSU All-American right fielder did his part in leading the Bulldogs back to the College World Series for the first time since 2007. Then, with some help from Hunter, the Bulldogs made the CWS championship series, the furthest any team has made it in MSU history. Not to mention the fact that Hunter hit one of the three or four home runs hit for the entire series in the cavernous TD Ameritrade Park.

After wrapping up his collegiate career, Hunter made good on his first round selection by the Padres, signing with the organization in a deal that included a whopping $2.68 million signing bonus, the sixth highest ever dished out to a MLB draft signee.

With all that said, it should come as no surprise to us that the Summer of Hunter continued in big fashion last night, as Renfroe hit his first professional home run, a blast to dead center field. The roundtripper came in just his third game with the Eugene Emeralds, a Padres Class A Short Season affiliate. Hunter joined the Emeralds just a day or so after finalizing his deal with the Padres, and already he has seven hits in twelve at bats with that mammoth shot to center, which came in an 8-0 win last night. We should also mention that the Emeralds have not lost since he joined them.

Here's to hoping Hunter's fantastic summer continues.
