The University of Houston cut ties with Seth Romero on Wednesday, effectively ending the college career of the talented but oft-troubled pitcher who is projected to be a high pick in the upcoming Major League Baseball draft.
In a statement, UH coach Todd Whitting said the school made the decision to dismiss and "move forward without Seth" after an incident Tuesday and "previous conduct detrimental to the team." A source with knowledge of the situation said Romero got into a fight with another player before the team's departure for a game against Rice in Sugar Land.
As it turns out, it was the final mishap in a series of second chances for Romero, who was reinstated to the program on May 1 after a monthlong suspension – his second in the last 14 months - for a violation of university and athletic department policy.
