Phillies Nab Clark
Former Roughrider catcher Nolan Clark signed a free-agent professional contract with the Philadelphia Phillies on Friday. At the time, Clark was playing for the Eau Claire Express and was leading the team with a .333 batting average and was named to the Northwoods League South Division All-Star team. He will report to the big league club immediately to be assigned to a minor league team.
This past spring, the California native hit .388 for YC with 81 hits and 32 runs batted in. For his efforts, Clark was named First Team All-ACCAC, First Team All-NJCAA Region I and Third Team NJCAA All-American while leading the Roughriders to a 36-27 overall record and 22-16 conference mark.
