Darius Hill receives official promotion to Class A South Bend Cubs

WVU Baseball

One of the most prolific baseball players in West Virginia University history is on the move.

One day after making his first appearance with the club, Darius Hill officially received a promotion to the Class A South Bend Cubs after a month-long stint with the short league Eugene Emeralds.

Hill played in 23 games for the Emeralds, raking a .306 batting average with 13 RBIs. He also hit 3 doubles, a signature of his while in Morgantown.

He went 1-for-3 in his debut with South Bend on Tuesday, with a single and a strikeout.

Hill was drafted by the Chicago Cubs in the 20th round of the 2019 MLB Draft, as part of the largest draft class in WVU history. He is currently etched in the program’s record books, having played in the most games and hitting the most doubles in Mountaineer history.
