2015 ALL-STAR: Stephenville’s Brock Holt signs contract with Texas Rangers


Stephenville’s Brock Holt is returning to Texas after agreeing to a minor-league contract with the Texas Rangers Friday. Holt’s signing includes a guaranteed invitation to MLB spring training and is laced with incentives that could earn him $2.5 million next season.
A 2006 graduate of Stephenville High School, Holt was drafted by the Pittsburgh Pirates after playing at Rice University and made his major-league debut in 2012.
Holt has played with four MLB teams, including the Pirates, Boston Red Sox, Milwaukee Brewers, and Washington Nationals, and he has a .268 career hitting average.
Holt will always be part of MLB history as the first and only person to hit-for- the-cycle in the postseason, and he has hit-for-the-cycle twice in his career. Mainly used as an infielder, Holt has played every position except for catcher during his career.
Holt is the proud owner of two World Series rings after winning championships with the Red Sox in 2013 and 2018, and he was selected to the All-Star game in 2015.
