WORCESTER, Mass. - Former Holy Cross baseball star Tucker Frawley (New Haven, Conn.) has signed with the Worcester Tornadoes organization of the Can-Am League, as announced by team officials this week.
"We are excited for Tucker to join the Tornadoes," said general manager Todd Marlin. "This will undoubtedly enhance the great partnership that we have with Holy Cross now that one of their former stars will be returning to Hanover Insurance Park to play professionally."
Frawley, who was a three-time All-Patriot League selection and a three-time team Most Valuable Player selection, recently played at Fenway Park in the New England College Baseball All-Star game. It was Frawley's second straight regional all-star game appearance.
The five-foot-eight infielder finished his career as Holy Cross' all-time hits leader (190 career hits). He currently ranks second in program history for career games played (147 games played) and hits in single season (65 hits in 2006), and is third all-time for RBI in a single season (37 RBI in 2006).
This past season, Frawley led the team in batting average (.380 batting average), at-bats, hits, RBI, doubles, triples, walks, total bases, and plate appearances.
The Tornadoes are in the middle of a three-game set with the Brockton Rox at Campanelli Stadium in Brockton, Mass. The first pitch of tonight's game is slated for 7:05 PM.
