Shaq Thompson is 0-32 as a pro baseball player UPDATED: 0-39

Shaq Thompson, the Grant High School football star headed to Washington in the fall to play big time college football, is playing professional baseball this summer as an outfielder for the Gulf Coast League Red Sox. How is he doing so far? Epic fail. Thompson is 0-32 with 31 strikeouts. Yes, that’s correct: 31 strikeouts and 1 infield grounder (which produced an RBI, however).

I’m with Bleacher Report’s Michael Felder on this. I think it’s awesome that Thompson is playing pro baseball, and the maturity and humility he’ll gain from this will serve him well when he is playing D-1 football. Let’s all root for Shaq to break out of his slump!

UPDATED 7/30: The long national nightmare is over; Shaq is reporting for Pac-12 football on Thursday. His minor league career ends at 0-39 with 37 strikeouts. There’s nowhere to go but up!
