Roseberry passes on extra season, ends baseball career

By  | 

Ty Roseberry's 2020 season came to an abrupt end. So did his baseball career.

The Nebraska first baseman is passing on the option to return to the Huskers in 2021. As a current senior, Roseberry, along with all all Division-I spring sport seniors, can retain their eligibility. However, the Kearney native feels the time is right to step away from the game.

"I felt like I wasn't all the way there, so I decided it'd be best for me not to sell anyone short or myself short," Roseberry said. "I felt like it was time for me to call it a career."

Roseberry played in 12 games during the abbreviated 2020 season. He made 10 starts with a .211 batting average.

Roseberry joined the Huskers prior to the 2019 season. He started his college career at Nebraska-Kearney, but was forced to find a new team when the Lopers abruptly cut their program in 2018.

"My story is probably a little different than most," Roseberry said. "I enjoyed playing the game. I'm glad I got to play for so long. There were definitely some bumps in the road, but I enjoyed it."
