Former Gamecock outfielder DeAngelo Mack will begin his 2010 season as a member of the Class A Charleston RiverDogs. Here's a blurb from the release the team put out today:
Mack, a native of West Columbia, S.C. and a popular Gamecock, enjoyed a fabulous debut season with the New York-Penn League (NYPL) champion Staten Island Yankees after being drafted by the Yankees in the 13th round of the 2009 First-Year Player Draft. The 23-year-old raked at a .306 clip in 66 games with seven home runs and 41 RBI in being named to the league's midseason All-Star team. He ranked second in the NYPL in extra-base hits (30), tied for third in total bases (119), placed fifth in slugging percentage (.513) and sixth in average.
Mack and former Clemson pitcher Graham Stoneburner were the first players announced on Charleston's 2010 roster. For the full release on the RiverDog's site, click here.
