Boomer White Transferring to Texas A&M

Bruce Thorson-USA TODAY Sports

The sophomore will have to sit out in 2015 before getting an opportunity to play in the outfield.

Unfortunately, folks, the rumors are true.

Boomer White, a TCU baseball fan favorite, is transferring to Texas A&M to finish his collegiate career. The sophomore was a two year starter for the Horned Frogs in the outfield, and his recent heroics late in games helped get TCU back to Omaha for the second time in school history.

His walk off hit in the 22-inning marathon game against Sam Houston State will go down as a great moment in TCU history, and I captured it on film.

It's a shocking move, as White was certainly going to start next year. Not to mention, the bulk of the starters from the 2014 squad were returning and eying another trip to Nebraska.

As Fungo pointed out in his Way-Too-Early TCU Baseball Depth Chart for 2015, Boomer was going to see time in left field and at DH, while Walker Pennington was being groomed to replace him.

In 2014 Boomer sported a .315 batting average, 2 home runs and 49 RBI. He had the lowest fielding percentage of all three starting outfielders, but was still an above average left fielder.

Obviously there are a lot of questions surrounding what prompted Boomer to make this move, and one major rumor is that it was a money issue. As for now, it looks like the door was just thrown wide open for Walker Pennington to step in as a starter. The question now is, who will DH?
