Jake Eigsti Joins The Sharks

POSTED: 9/5/2011 by Megan McLaughlin

Today the Riversharks announced the addition of Jake Eigsti to the Riversharks Roster. The 27 year old infielder from Eureka, IL arrives from the Rockford RiverHawks in the Frontier League.

“He’ll be a welcome addition to our line-up. He plays solid defense in all of the infield positions which is what we are looking for at this stage. He will definitely see some playing time through the end of the season.” Von Hayes, Riversharks Team Manager.

Eigsti led the Frontier League with a .340 batting average, and was in the top ten for RBI with 74 on the season. The righty was also selected for the 2011 East Division Frontier League All Star Game. The sure-handed infielder had a .959 fielding percentage with Rockford.

Eigsti is a welcome addition to the Riversharks Roster as they enter their final 13 games of the season including a series next weekend vs. division rival the Long Island Ducks.
