MEDFORD, Or -- The Medford Rogues have signed Caleb Broughton for the 2019 season. Broughton graduated from Lebanon High School (New Hampshire) in 2017, where he was a four-year member of the varsity baseball team and varsity captain his junior and senior year. He currently plays for Bucknell University.
In his first full season playing baseball for the Bucknell Bison, Broughton hit .282 with 31 hits, 23 runs scored, and a stellar 1:1 walk:strikeout ratio (10:10) in 110 at bats. Broughton struck out more than once in just one game all season.
In high school, Broughton was a three-year member of the varsity football team, football team captain his senior year, and named to the second-team all-defensive team. Broughton led his high school football and baseball teams to the playoffs three different years. On the baseball diamond, Broughton hit .406 his freshman year, .480 his sophomore season, and .386 his junior year. He led the team in stolen bases, RBIs, batting average, and on-base percentage three out of four years. Broughton was also a four-year member of the American Legion Post 22 Senior team.
“He’s one of the hardest-working players I’ve had,” said Lebanon head coach Doug Ashey in an interview with Valley News' Josh Weinreb in 2017. “I’ve had a lot of good, hard-working kids. He comes every day, he practices hard every day. He doesn’t take a day off.”
