(Waterloo, IA) The Waterloo Bucks have announced the signing of left-handed pitcher Greg Williams for the 2010 season. Currently, Williams is a sophomore at Marshall University majoring in Accounting.
This season for the Thundering Herd, Williams has not played due the rehabilitation of an injury, but is scheduled be ready for the start of the Bucks’ season. In the 2009 season for Marshall, Williams started in 7 of the 14 games he appeared in. The Cincinnati, Ohio native totaled 44.2 innings with 38 strikeouts and a 2-5 record.
