Freeman Signs With Ducks

Freeman Signs With Ducks

O'FALLON, Mo. -- Longtime River City Rascal Clint Freeman has been signed by the Long Island Ducks of the Atlantic League to continue his professional playing career. The 28-year-old spent three seasons as a player on the Rascals (2016-18), primarily at first base, and was serving as a bench coach under Manager Steve Brook this sign prior to the signing.

Brook released the following statement regarding the announcement:

"This game never stops surprising me. You just never know what's going to happen. In a season that has already seen three of our players advance to MLB clubs, I wasn't expecting one of my coaches to get another opportunity in pro ball. But, that's the game. I'm so happy for Clint and wish him the best in his future career with Long Island."

Freeman was originally drafted by the Los Angeles Dodgers in the 18th round of the 2014 MLB Amateur Draft, and spent two seasons in their system prior to his arrival in O'Fallon. He had a decorated collegiate career at East Tennessee State.

Over his three-year Rascals playing career, the lefty hit .264 with 33 home runs and 138 RBIs, while also making 12 appearances on the mound. He will join former Rascals teamates Cody Mincey and Joe Iorio in Long Island.
