Christopher – 6’1” – 188 – P

William Clarke College, Kellyville

Christopher is the son of Stuart and Michelle Rofe.  He currently attends William Clarke College.  

On the baseball diamond, Rofe has played for the NSW Metro U18, NSW Country U18, NSW All-Schools, and Marrickville, as well as Baulkham Hills baseball club.  He was a pitcher on the National NSW Championships teams in 2016, and 2017, and was a part of the 2017 National Championship Runner-Up NSW Metros team. Christopher’s current stats include a 1.27 ERA, 21.1 innings, and .215 opposing batting average.

While at MCC, Rofe plans to work towards an Associates of Science.

Christopher on choosing MCC:  “I have heard good things about the school from other Australians who are there and I trust Jeff Brabant’s ability to help me improve as a baseball player.”

Coach Brabant on Christopher: “Chris comes to us as another in a long line of Aussies in our program.  I’m proud of the relationships we’ve made ‘down under’ to continue the recruitment of great players, students and individuals.  Chris will be no different.  We fully expect him to slide right in with our current class of Aussies and compete for a spot right away.  I feel that Chris will be a great asset to our program and he will mesh well with our culture.  He has some great tools and I believe we can put them to right use for the continued success of our program.  We look forward to getting Chris on campus in the fall!”
