Shouldn’t these guys (especially if they are a bit more mature after a few years in college) be able to make up their minds in advance before deciding to sign a professional conract ?

Getting drafted, sorting out a deal and then retiring after just one game ?
Has he fallen out with the manager or teammates ?
Has he decided he doesn’t want to become a professional baseball player?
Has he become disillusioned with seeing the competion from strong catchers all through the system at Pittsburgh ?
This is really weird. I sure hope it was just some sort of personal/family issues he had to attend to and he’ll be back someday.

If so, good for him. I don’t see why more College students with career opportunities that pay them more than minimum wage wouldn’t do this. Get drafted, get a little bonus and then go pursue some other interest.

Seriously, a mild bummer as low minors C’s are always needed.
