SAN RAFAEL, Calif. -- Earlier this week former Sonoma State student-athlete Jourdan Weiks embarked on his professional baseball career by signing a free agent contract with the nearby San Rafael Pacifics of the Pacific Association. Weiks, who played for the Seawolves in 2014 and 2015, becomes the 117th Sonoma State player to play professionally since 1986.
Weiks doubled and drove in a run in his debut on Friday, an 8-4 win over the Sonoma Stompers.
A native of Olympia, Washington who also played at the University of San Francisco, Weiks was a two-time All-CCAA selection as a shortstop for Sonoma. He wrapped up his SSU career with a .309 average, 16 doubles, and 19 stolen bases.
The San Rafael Pacifics are part of the four-team Pacific Association, an independent league based in Northern California. Weiks becomes a teammate of former SSU star and current assistant coach Zack Pace, who has played for the team since their inception.
