SAUGET, Ill-- Former University of Mobile baseball player Sam Mahoney became the 30th UMobile baseball player to sign a professional contract when he inked with the Gateway Grizzlies of the Frontier League.

Mahoney was the only Ram to play and start all 52 games in 2011, and he showed a keen eye at the dish with 27 walks and only 24 strikeouts.
Prior to Ohio University and UMobile, Mahoney spent time with the University of South Carolina and Northwest Florida State College.
