SARANAC LAKE, NY – Empire Baseball Leagues key free agent infielder Raul Shah has been invited to spring training with the Southern Maryland Bluecrabs of the Atlantic League.
Raul Shah hit .287 last season with the New York Bucks including 4 Home Runs and 12 Runs Batted In. Shah is coming off another strong season in the Empire League.
In 111 plate appearances, Shah registered 94 official at bats with 5 doubles.
Raul had the quickest hands when turning a double playing up the middle. He was a fun player to watch and I wish nothing but success during camp with the Bluecrabs”. – VP of Baseball Jerry Gonzalez
When baseball resumes in 2020, Shah will have the best opportunity of his career in the Atlantic League.
I’m incredibly grateful for the opportunity the EBL provides – without it, I wouldn’t have this opportunity today. Going into spring training with the Blue Crabs is incredibly exciting and I can’t wait to compete. Being from Maryland, this is a special achievement for me as I can invite my family and friends to watch me do what I love. Thanks to the EBL, I have got an opportunity to play at the highest level of independent baseball this year.
