Braves Sign UMBC Catcher

The Staunton Braves have signed catcher Dmitri Floyd from the University of Maryland-Baltimore County (UMBC) to play for the Braves next summer.

Dmitri earned all-conference accolades, ranking as the 15th-best player and third-best catcher in Maryland/Delaware by Prep Baseball Report.

Here’s what UMBC recruiting coordinaor Liam Bowen said about Floyd. “Dmitri is a very polished defensive catcher with a lot of upside at the plate. He has been very well-coached at the high school level by Dave Gordon, and it shows when you watch him play. But my favorite part about Dmitri is the intangibles. He is exactly the kind of intelligent and intense competitor we need at that position. We are definitely excited about his future,”
