By Jeremy Whichard

FARGO, N.D.- The University of Maryland Eastern Shore has announced that all time hits leader, Tre-Von Johnson has signed a professional contract to play for the Fargo-Moorehead RedHawks of the American Association of Professional Baseball.

Johnson, an East New Market, Md., native is the second UMES player to sign a professional contract in the past year and the fifth since 2008. He currently is assistant coach at UMES.

"Tre-Von is an exciting player who got overlooked last year due to injury," said Head Coach Doug Simonic. "He is looking to kick-start his professional career and we are excited to give him an opportunity in spring training".

Johnson holds the all-time hits record at UMES with 225 career hits. He earned All-MEAC tournament Team honors in 2013 after he hit .625(5-of-8) with two multi-hit games. Last season Johnson racked up 14 multi-hit and six multi-RBI games.

In his collegiate career the North Dorchester High School graduate hit .332 in 185 games in 4 years. He had 33 doubles, six home runs, and held a .440 slugging percentage. He was named to the All-MEAC Second Team in his sophomore and junior years.

Johnson will report to spring training with the RedHawks in late April.
