« Back
January 6, 2010 - LOVES PARK, Ill. – The Rockford RiverHawks have brought back another veteran from their pennant-winning team of six years ago.

The RiverHawks announced Wednesday that they have signed right-handed pitcher Bobby Mack. Mack pitched for the RiverHawks in two stints over parts of four seasons, including the 2004 Frontier League championship year.

Mack had no record, no saves and a 2.41 earned-run average in 13 appearances for the RiverHawks that year. The reliever signed with Rockford as a free agent for the 2003 season and was traded to Richmond in July 2005. He returned to the RiverHawks in 2007 and was 1-2 with a save and a 5.58 ERA in 17 games. He has not pitched professionally since then.

“He was injured and is coming off a rehab,” co-owner and director of baseball operations Dave Ciarrachi said. “We’re going to give him a chance and see if he’s healthy and if he can help us.”

Mack has a career record of 6-12 with three saves a 4.71 ERA, along with a strikeout-to-walk ratio, in five professional seasons. Mack, 29, has LS-2 status in the Northern League.

The RiverHawks are members of the Northern League, an eight-team independent professional baseball league that will play its 18th season in 2010. The RiverHawks’ ninth season begins at 7:05 p.m. May 20 against the Schaumburg Flyers at Road Ranger Stadium. Advertising and ticket information is available by calling (815) 885-2255.
