(EVANSVILLE, INDIANA) – The Evansville Otters are excited to announce that first baseman Andrew Clark has had his contract purchased by the Chicago White Sox this afternoon.

With Clark’s signing, the Evansville Otters have promoted over 50 former players to affiliated baseball.

Clark had an exceptional start to the season, hitting .643 with a team-high four doubles and four runs batted in. He was promoted to the Chicago White Sox organization after only four games in an Evansville Otter uniform.

“It would have been nice to have AC a little longer, but it is great to see him get the opportunity to return to organization baseball,” said Otters manager Andy McCauley. “He exemplifies what is great about the Frontier League. We wish him the best of luck with his baseball career.”

The Indianapolis native attended New Palestine High School where he was named the Indiana Gatorade Player of the Year. Clark excelled at Louisville, being named the Big East Tournament MVP during his senior season.  

He was drafted in the 13th round of the 2010 MLB Amateur Draft by the Texas Rangers. He played three seasons in the Rangers organization where he was named as a Baseball America Low A Class All-Star with the Hickory Crawdads (.313, 12 HR, 60 RBIs).

“I am very happy the Chicago White Sox organization has given me an opportunity to chase my dream once again,” said Clark. “I’m very thankful for the opportunity I got to be a part of the Otters. It was great to meet the coaches and the players. They are great guys and I wish them all the best of luck, not just in baseball but in life.”

The Evansville Otters will play in a doubleheader on Thursday at the Traverse City Beach Bums. Both games are scheduled for seven innings with first pitch at Wuerfel Park set for 5:05 pm EDT.

Fans can listen in to the radio broadcast live on WUEV 91.5 FM beginning at 4:45 pm EDT.
