When Chris Roberts reported to FSU in the fall of 1989, he was the highest drafted player ever to play baseball for the Seminoles and his impact was immediate as he was named a second-team Freshman All-American by Baseball America in 1990. As a sophomore, he was named Metro Conference Player of the Year, MVP of the South Regional and earned All-America honors from Collegiate Baseball (2nd team) and Baseball America (3rd team). For the season, "Mr. Versatile" as he was appropriately nicknamed, hit .321 with 14 homeruns and 77 RBIs as an outfielder and posted a 7-2 mark with a 3.52 ERA as a left-handed pitcher.

He earned first-team All-America honors from Collegiate Baseball and Baseball America as a junior in 1992. In three seasons with the Seminoles, Roberts had a 23-8 record as a pitcher while hitting .301 with 32 homeruns and led the Seminoles to the College World Series in 1991 and 1992.

Roberts played on the USA Olympic team in 1992 before the Mets picked him in the first round of the 1992 draft. He played nine seasons of professional baseball before retiring.
