By Travis Jenkins

Former Chester High baseball stand-out Chris Thomas has been a Bearcat for the past few years. For the time being he's just a Bear.
Thomas, who had one year of eligibility remaining at Lander University, has agreed a free agent contract with the Arizona Diamondbacks. The team has assigned him to the Yakima Washington Bears, a short-season Class A team made up primarily of first-year players. The team competes in the Northwest League.
"They are flying me to Arizona first to sign my contract," Thomas said. "Then I go to Yakima."
