    Seth McClung

    ALDERSON Having pitched his last Major League baseball game with the Milwaukee Brewers in 2009, Seth McClung was hoping for one more shot at the big leagues when he signed with the Pittsburgh Pirates this past November after a few seasons in the minors and even in Mexico, trying to earn his way back.

    But after pitching well during limited spring training action with the big league club his final pitch was a 93 mile-per-hour fastball that helped him strike out the side he received the call that ended his comeback attempt on March 22, when the Pirates told him he was released.

    I think I fit in with the Major League plans as a backup guy in the minor leagues to call up, but they were really having a youth movement, said McClung of his experience with the Pirates. I dont think they expected me to throw that well, and they didnt have a spot. I took it as a sign from God that it was time to move on. Once I accepted that, everything else fell into place for me.

    After 16 years playing professional baseball, McClung decided enough was enough. He had other offers to keep the dream alive, but he decided it was time to remove the jersey for good.
