Championship team veteran returns to Rockford
« Back
February 1, 2007 - LOVES PARK, Ill. – Three seasons after he was part of a Frontier League championship team, Bobby Mack is back with the Rockford RiverHawks.

The RiverHawks announced today that they had signed the right-handed pitcher. Mack, who did not pitch professionally in 2006, spent 2003-04 and a portion of the 2005 season with Rockford.

Mack’s 2004 season did not begin until July 1, but he appeared in 13 games and posted no record, a 2.41 ERA and no saves. In the playoffs, he did not allow an earned run in two appearances. The last member of that pennant-winning team who had still been on the roster was left fielder Rico Santana, who reached the league’s age limit of 27 at the end of the 2006 season.

In 2005, Mack was 1-3 with a 5.91 ERA and two saves before Rockford traded him in July to Richmond. Mack finished the year with Windy City, where he began his professional career in 2002.

Mack, 26, is a resident of Barrington and a former Harper Community College pitcher. He has 1-year status in the Frontier League.

The RiverHawks are the Western Division champions of the Frontier League, a 12-team independent professional baseball league that will play its 15th season in 2007. Advertising, season-ticket and suite information is available by calling the box office at (815) 885-2255. Fans can also visit the RiverHawks online at www.rockfordriverhawks.com.
