Chestnut Hill grad signs deal with Minnesota Twins

Alec Craig signs with the Twins
Alec Craig inked a deal with the Minnesota Twins over the weekend, becoming the first graduate of Chestnut Hill College to play for a Major League Baseball organization.

A four-time All-Central Atlantic Collegiate Conference honoree and 2018 graduate, Craig's name is littered all over the Griffins' record book. He finished his senior season with a .403 batting average to go along with a .520 slugging percentage, 47 stolen bases, and 11 triples. He finished his career second all-time in the program with hits (181), and first all-time in games played (172), triples (19), and stolen bases (98).

Craig, who was playing second base for the Westside Woolly Mammoths, will now report to the Elizabethton Twins of the Appalachian League.

The Hammonton, N.J. native is the fourth Griffin to sign a professional baseball contract – joining Bryan Henry '14, Richard Cavazza '14, and Dominic Raia III '15.
