Although he did make an appearance in Tueday night’s game, former Colorado Mesa University standout Sergio Romo was selected to the National League roster for the 2013 Major League Baseball All-Star Game, becoming the first former baseball student-athlete from the Rocky Mountain Athletic Conference to receive the honor.

As a college senior, in 2005, Romo entered the Mesa State record books as the career leader in earned run average and holds the season records for innings pitched, ERA, strikeouts, wins, and fewest walks per nine innings. His 2.46 ERA that season was the best of any RMAC pitcher with more than 120 innings in the books. He was named an All-American that year by the National Collegiate Baseball Writers Association.

Romo was drafted by the San Francisco Giants, where he currently stars as one of the league’s best closers, in the 28th round of the 2005 Major League Baseball Draft. He helped the Giants to a 2012 World Series sweep of the Detroit Tigers by pitching three perfect innings in the series and earning saves in three of the four wins.
