Hale ’11 Named to Atlanta Braves' Postseason Roster
The Princeton baseball team will be represented in the 2013 MLB postseason, as David Hale ’11 was named to the Atlanta Braves' 25-player roster.
Hale, who is a rookie with the organization that drafted him in 2009 in the third round, has made two starts with the NL East champions. His debut was nothing less than impressive – he set a new franchise record with nine strikeouts in a Big League debut and allowed only four hits against, but would end with a no decision. In his second start, Hale got the win in an Atlanta win over the Phillies. He allowed a run on seven hits while striking out five over six innings.
The Braves open their playoff run tonight, Thursday, Oct. 3 versus the Los Angeles Dodgers at 8:30 p.m.
