Former Galena High star Dustin Hahn has signed with the Colorado Rockies and is set to begin his pro career, NevadaPrep.com has reported.
The 2001 Galena graduate has been assigned to Casper, Wyo., a Rooking League team in the Pioneer League. The terms of the deal weren't disclosed, but it's likely that Hahn received a signing bonus in the $60,000 range.
Hahn was drafted in the ninth round by the Rockies. Joseph Muro a right-handed pitcher from Mt. San Antonio (Calif.) Community College, was the 255th pick overall in the ninth round and received a $60,000 signing bonus from the Tampa Bay Devil Rays. Hahn was the 260th overall pick.
Hahn was taken in the 21st round by the Baltimore Orioles in 2001, but accepted a scholarship from Louisiana State where he played one year. Hahn also played for the Carson Capitols in 2001. He transferred to Sacramento City Community College where he had an outstanding year this past season.
At Galena, Hahn played outfield and was drafted as a third baseman by the Rockies. At Sac City, Hahn was named as an All-American and made the all-Bay Valley East Conference first team. During the regular season, Hahn hit .383 with seven home runs and 35 RBI in 36 games.
