...Neither will Broughan Jantz

29th Round pick Broughan Jantz won't be signing with the Astros, either, according to hometown paper The Union.

As good as he was on the football field, it was through baseball that Jantz was recently drafted by a professional sports organization. The .372 hitter as a Nevada Union center fielder was selected by the Houston Astros in the 29th round with the 873rd pick of the 2010 Major League Baseball Draft. But, after playing summer ball for a team in the Bay Area, Jantz has decided to follow in his brother Steele's footsteps in playing football for City College of San Francisco.
