Kraig Binick returns to the pond

The Long Island Ducks announced on Thursday that they have re-signed 2011 Atlantic League batting champion Kraig Binick for the 2012 season.

A native of Hicksville, NY, Binick was a major part of last years First and Second Half Championship teams hitting .342 with 42 stolen bases.

Binick was originally drafted by the Baltimore Orioles in the 27th round (819th overall) by the Baltimore Orioles in the 2007 MLB Amateur Draft out of New York Tech.

He played three years in the Orioles organization splitting time between the GCL Orioles, Bluefield, Aberdeen, Bowie, and Frederick.

He also made stops in the Frontier League with Windy City (2009), and in the Can-Am League with Sussex (2010) before joining the Ducks last season.

  1. tteski said.....It's great that Binick is coming back to the Ducks. I just wonder what the MLB scouts are thinking. He's 26 years old and tore up the Atlantic League last season and did great in the Caribbean League this winter.

  2. Kid's a stud and not afraid of anything. Wondering when an MLB team that needs a lead-off center fielder may give a call...not like there's one of those in Flushing, right?
