No-hitter for Dane Acker

Oklahoma pitcher and Brenham High School alumnus Dane Acker (pictured left) gets showered in Gatorade after tossing a no-hitter against No. 11 LSU on March 1 at Minute Maid Park in Houston. Acker, a 2017 BHS graduate, was selected by the Oakland Athletics in the fourth round of the of the 2020 MLB First-Year Player Draft on June 11. The right-handed pitcher, who starred for the Cubs before joining Rice, transferring to San Jacinto-North and eventually signing with the University of Oklahoma, has signed a pro deal one year after rejecting a minor league contract with the Arizona Diamondbacks.

Something may be telling Dane Acker it’s time to go pro.

One year after sidestepping a Minor League Baseball contract to fulfill his commitment to the University of Oklahoma, the Brenham High School product was again selected in during the 2020 MLB First-Year Player Draft.
