QUINTIN BERRY'S CONTRACT PURCHASED BY BREWERS

Outfielder heads to Triple-A Colorado Springs

(Central Islip, N.Y., Aug. 17, 2017) – The Long Island Ducks today announced that outfielder Quintin Berry’s contract has been purchased by the Milwaukee Brewers organization. The former Major Leaguer will join the team’s Triple-A affiliate in Colorado Springs, Colo.

“Quintin has helped contribute to our offense while also sharing his wealth of knowledge and experience with the rest of the club,” said Ducks President/GM Michael Pfaff. “We wish him the best of luck in the Brewers organization.”

Berry played 27 games with the Flock and compiled 23 hits, nine RBI, 16 runs, six doubles, one triple and 12 walks. He also showcased tremendous speed on the basepaths, stealing 15 bases while being caught just three times. The 32-year-old had hit safely in each of his past six games entering play on Thursday, batting .333 (8-for-24) during the streak. Defensively, Berry did not commit a single error in the outfield.

The San Diego native has four seasons of Major League experience, including one each with the Detroit Tigers (2012), Boston Red Sox (2013), Baltimore Orioles (2014) and Chicago Cubs (2015). He played 125 MLB games and compiled a .265 batting average with three home runs, 33 RBI, 53 runs, 10 doubles, six triples and 27 stolen bases. He also appeared in back-to-back World Series with the Tigers in 2012 and Red Sox in 2013, winning the title during the latter. Berry began the 2017 season with the Rochester Red Wings (AAA, Twins) of the International League.

Berry is the third member of the Flock to have his contract purchased by an MLB organization or foreign professional club this season. He joins infielder Nate Freiman (Mexican League) and right-hander pitcher Tim Melville (Minnesota Twins).

The Long Island Ducks are members of the Atlantic League of Professional Baseball and play their home games at Bethpage Ballpark. For further information, call (631) 940-DUCK or visit www.liducks.com.
