Mitch Clarke Signs Professional Contract With The Reds
Submitted By Dan Thompson on Monday, June 29, 2009
Less than three weeks after the MLB draft Mitch Clarke has inked a deal with the Cincinnati Reds and will report to the Florida Gulf Coast League as soon as his US visa has been processed. Mitch will wrap up his storied career as a Terrier this week at the Toronto Elite Tournament, no doubt adding to the legendary numbers he has compiled over the past two years.

The very likeable, often comedic lefthander is blessed with a great arm, but that alone is not the reason for the staggering success he has had. Away from the field, Mitch has worked very hard on his strength and conditioning and has become a student of the game. He is a polished big game pitcher that has carried the Terriers pitching staff for the past two seasons. Further, the tremendous support Mitch has had from his parents through his entire amateur career has been unyielding. Everyone associated with the Terriers is very proud of Mitch and wish him the best of luck on his road to the big leagues!
