It's a notable achievement for an athlete to accomplish enough in high school to be given a chance to compete in college. It's even more rare for an athlete to perform at a high enough level in college to secure an opportunity to play at the next level. Michael Maiocco (JFCA Class of 2013) became the Saints first professionally signed athlete by joinng the Florence Freedom of the Frontier League on a free agent contract.
Maiocco had a stellar senior season for the Saints of Flagler College caping an impressive college resume. The left-handed pitcher led the team in ERA and strikeouts on his way to earning Second Team All-Peach Belt Honors. JFCA wishes Michael all the best on his next challenge!
