(ABC 6 News) – The Rochester Honkers have signed Stanford University Freshman Christian Robinson for the 2018 season.

Robinson is a 6-foot-3, 210-pound outfielder from Melbourne, Fla. Robinson was selected in the 27th round in the 2017 MLB draft by the San Diego Padres out of Viera High School. He was a first-team All-Region selection and a second-team All-American by Perfect Game.


Robinson holds the Viera High School career home run record and led them to two district championships. He participated in the prestigious Team USA Tournament of Stars.  Robinson got reclassified as a junior in 2016 so he’d graduate and take the next step in his baseball career a year earlier.

Robinson's first collegiate at-bat came on Sunday in the 9th inning, with Stanford leading Texas 11-1.  He struck out looking on a 3-2 count.

The 14-2 Stanford Cardinals are currently ranked 7th in the country according to  They host the University of Southern California (USC) this weekend for a three-game series starting on Friday. 

The Rochester Honkers 25th season begins on Tuesday, May 29 when the team hosts the Eau Claire Express in their home opener at Mayo Field at 7:05 pm.
