Passaic County Technical Institute (PCTI) alumnus, Arbert Cipion, has a lot to look forward to following graduation. The center fielder was snagged by the Milwaukee Brewers on day two of the Major League Baseball Draft. Arbert is the first baseball player from PCTI to be drafted into the major leagues.
He’s batted.482 and led PCTI to a 20-4 record, the Big North Liberty title, and the NJTAC championship. Arbert is a leadoff batter who led the team in runs scored, walks, and stolen bases, which earned him a spot on the All-Passaic County first team.
Prior to being drafted by the Milwaukee Brewers, Arbert committed to playing baseball at Southern New Hampshire University. By choosing to pursue a career in the major leagues he can expect a signing value to exceed $146,000 (according to MLB.com). Further education will also be paid for by the association.
