Reggie Abercrombie - Winnipeg Goldeyes


The Winnipeg Goldeyes have brought back one of their most popular sluggers for the 2019 season.

Centre fielder Reggie Abercrombie has been re-signed to the club, making it his sixth season with the Fish.

Abercrombie hit .316 (12th in the American Association) with 15 home runs and 62 RBI over 99 games played last season. The Columbus, Georgia native added 63 runs, 13 doubles, and 12 stolen bases.


“I’m glad to have Reggie back,” said Goldeyes’ manager Rick Forney. “He is one of the greatest Goldeyes of all-time, and I’m hoping we can capture one more magical moment together before he calls it a career.”

The Goldeyes also signed right-handed pitcher Dylan Thompson and infielder Kevin Lachance to contracts.

American Association spring training begins May 4.
