Former Marshall pitcher Aaron Blair officially became a professional Saturday when he signed his contract with the Arizona Diamondbacks.

Blair, 21, signed a deal worth $1.435 million, according to Baseball America. The Diamondbacks selected Blair with the 36th overall pick of the first-year player draft on June 6.

The 6-foot-5, 225-pound right-hander from Las Vegas went 5-5 with a 2.85 earned run average and was an All-Conference USA first-team selection this spring.

Arizona has now signed all but one of its 10 draft selections.

    Finally, warmer weather has arrived to the Mountain State. I’m told, it’s socially acceptable to be late nowadays and there is even a term for it — being fashionably late. Of course, I have also been told that camo is the new black in fashion. I don’t care much for tardiness, or for fashion for that matter, but I am perfectly content with the weather forecaster’s report as of late. And if wearing camouflage is trendy, I will fit in just nicely at any social gathering.
