Former Appalachian State University catcher Jeremy Dowdy (Raleigh, N.C./Wakefield) has signed a free-agent contract with the Chicago White Sox and will likely begin his professional career in nearby Bristol, Va. with
the rookie-level Bristol White Sox of the Appalachian League. Dowdy is one of only three players in Appalachian State history to play in 200 games as a Mountaineer. The 6-3, 215-pounder finished his collegiate career ranked among the program’s all-time top 10 with 203 games played, 198 starts, 732 at-bats, 43 doubles, 127 RBI and 86 walks and signed with the White Sox shortly after last week’s 40-round Major League Baseball Draft. His brother, Josh, was a pitcher at Appalachian from 2007-2009 and enjoyed a three-year pro career in the Baltimore Orioles’ organization.
