VIPERS GRADUATE FIRST PLAYER TO MAJOR LEAGUE ORGANIZATION

The Calgary Vipers have sent the first player in their brief history to a major league organization. Peter Young, president and chief operating officer of the Northern League team, announced today that the Philadelphia Phillies have purchased the contract of 24 year old left handed pitcher Ben King.

“One of our major objectives is to help younger players get to the next level”, said Vipers Field Manager Mike Busch. “Ben won some big games for us last summer, especially down the stretch and by the end of the season had taken over our closers role. Obviously we are going to miss him”.
