Recent Georgetown College graduate and former star shortstop, Bryan Bonner has signed a contract to play professional baseball with the Midwest Sliders of Waterford, Mich. Bonner sealed the deal on June 12 with the Sliders, who are a member of the Frontier League and plan to use him as a utility player.

He has played in all of Midwest's three games since signing and the Sliders are definitely using him in many areas, including second base and leftfield.

The league is an independent minor league that provides non-drafted players and those who have been released the chance to continue their careers. Many players are signed into affiliated organizations from this league.

"This is a great opportunity for Bryan and we are excited about his future," said Georgetown coach Erik Hagen. "I think all he needed was the chance to compete at this level and I believe his abilities will allow him to continue on, hopefully with an affiliated major league club."

While at Georgetown, the Cincinnati native started every game during his four years as a Tiger and was a four time All-Conference selection. He ended his career with an overall batting average of .318 and was responsible for a total of 190 RBIs, crossing the plate himself 153 times. He ranks in nearly every school career record offensively.
