NGU's Scolamiero Drafted by the Cleveland Indians

Tigerville SC (June 14, 2017) North Greenville center fielder Clark Scolamiero was drafted in the 22nd round by the Cleveland Indians on Wednesday, making him the 672nd overall pick.

Scolamiero spent one season in Tigerville, filling a void left in center field. The Greenville, SC native was a First Team All-Conference nod and was first on the team in batting average among players that had at least 150 at bats.

"On behalf of Clark's teammates and coaching staff, we are so proud of his accomplishment today. Getting drafted has been a dream of Clark's since he was a young boy, and it was an honor for all of us at NGU to be a part of that dream," said head baseball coach Landon Powell. "Clark is a great example of what being a NGU student-athlete is all about. He is first and foremost a follower of Christ, he's an honor student, an exceptional talent on the field, and a great friend and teammate off the field. We will miss him next year, but we are all very excited to see what great things Clark will do at the next level."

Scolamiero logged a .360 batting average this season and was the team leader in hits (76), runs (63), doubles (14), runs batted in (52) and was 29 of 31 in stolen bases. His RBI and stolen base numbers ranked him top five in Conference Carolinas.
