'Hawks pick up option on record-breaking Roehl
« Back
December 22, 2010 - LOVES PARK, Ill. – The Rockford RiverHawks plan on seeing their record-breaking closer in spring training.

Rockford’s only professional baseball team announced on Wednesday that it has exercised its 2011 option on right-handed pitcher Scott Roehl. Roehl saved a team-record 18 games last season – he broke Josh Latimer’s single-season standard of 15 saves, set in 2004 – and was 5-2 with a 4.05 earned-run average in 30 appearances.

Roehl was also a Northern League All-Star.

Roehl was Cleveland’s 10th-round pick in the 2003 draft. He joined the RiverHawks as a free agent last winter and is already third on the team’s all-time saves list.

The RiverHawks will play their 10th season in the Stateline in 2011. Advertising and ticket information is available by calling (815) 885-2255. Fans can also visit www.rockfordriverhawks.com.
