Von Rosenberg enjoying second career

One of Mainieri’s 2009 Tigers baseball signees was Zach Von Rosenberg, a 6-foot-5 pitcher from Zachary (La.) High School. In a somewhat testy situation, Von Rosenberg chose professional baseball over LSU. Von Rosenberg was a sixth-round draft choice of the Pittsburgh Pirates.

Von Rosenberg signed with Pittsburgh for $1.2 million – just one week before the deadline. Von Rosenberg never got above Class A during his six seasons in the Pirates organization.
