Former University of Toledo baseball player Ross Adolph was selected to represent the Brooklyn Cyclones in the New York-Penn League All-Star Game.


He was one of six Cyclones’ players selected to the South All-Stars and one of three to be named a starter.

The Findlay, Ohio, native leads the team with a .769 on-base slugging percentage and ranks second in the league with seven triples. In 39 games for the New York Mets’ Class A short season affiliate, Adolph has driven in 21 runs and tallied 38 hits, 14 of which have gone for extra bases.

Adolph was selected by the Mets in the 12th round of the Major League Baseball Rule 4 Draft in June, becoming the 46th player in UT program history to be drafted. An All-American and all-region performer in 2018, he turned in one of the best seasons by a Rocket hitter. The first-team All-Mid-American Conference and All-MAC Defensive Team selection tied the program’s single-season home run record with 15, tied for most in the league. He also led the MAC in RBIs (56) and was tops on the squad with 50 runs scored, 69 hits, 12 stolen bases, a .654 slugging percentage and a .445 on-base percentage. He became the first Rocket with double-digit home runs since 2010.
