Local product Jacob Rhame is returning to Sherman, Texas to join the coaching staff of the Sherman Baseball team as both Assistant Coach and Pitching Coach. A former Major League Baseball pitcher himself, Rhame brings a wealth of experience and talent to the team.

Rhame, a graduate of Guyer High School and Grayson College, was drafted by the Los Angeles Dodgers in the 6th round of the 2013 MLB Draft. His professional career saw him play for the New York Mets, where he made his Major League Debut in a scoreless outing against the Houston Astros in 2017. The following year, Rhame even cracked the Mets Opening Day Roster.

This is a significant acquisition for the Sherman Shadowcats. Rhame’s experience at the professional level, coupled with his local roots, makes him a valuable asset to the coaching staff. His pitching expertise will undoubtedly be an asset to the Sherman Shadowcats players as they further develop on the mound.

**Standing at 6’1″ and 225 lbs, the right-hander pitched 47.2 innings in the majors with the Mets, compiling a 6.23 ERA with 24 walks and 40 strikeouts. **

Welcome back to Sherman, Coach Rhame! We look forward to seeing your positive impact on the team!

I am a lifelong Rangers fan. When not covering the Texas Rangers farm, I enjoy spending time with my family, exploring all things minor league baseball, and pretending I can hit a fastball.
