CANTON — Former SUNY Canton baseball player Jordan Hunneyman has signed a contract to play professional baseball with the Brownsville (Texas) Charros, who play in United Baseball League, an independent league.
Hunneyman, a native of Redwood, graduated in May with a bachelor’s degree in criminal justice.
He finished his baseball career at SUNY Canton with school records for hits with 111 and 10 home runs and drove in 85 runs.
