As announced at the end of the ’06 season, the Craydawgs will hold a special number retirement ceremony for Greg Maddux (#31) and Rafael Palmiero (#25) during the opening game of the ’07 season, April 1.
Maddux was on the inaugural 1993 Craydawgs squad and pitched his way into the hearts of Craydawgs fans everywhere over the course of five seasons and over 1,000 innings pitched. Maddux led the Craydawgs to two BEML titles (1995, 2000) and compiled 77 wins and a remarkable 2.15 career ERA and 0.96 WHIP during his Craydawgs tenure:
Rafael Palmiero holds the all-time Craydawgs records for at-bats (2,987), hits (845), home runs (196), and RBI (608), and helped lead the Craydawgs to four league titles (1999, 2000, 2003, 2004).
Congratulations to Greg and Raffy.
