Grimes Returns To York For 2012!

The York Revolution have signed outfielder Scott Grimes for the 2012 season.

Grimes was a major catalyst on York's back-to-back championship teams in 2010 and 2011. In 2010, he set a league record for runs with 138. He also hit .312 that season with 17 home runs, 59 RBI and 28 stolen bases. He was named Atlantic League Co-Player of the Year that season.

Last season was another tremendous season for Grimes. He hit .268 with 15 home runs, 42 RBI, 97 runs and 21 stolen bases in only 115 games.

After a successful career at Keystone College (PA), Grimes signed with the Sussex Skyhawks of the Can-Am League in 2006. He played two seasons for Sussex before joining the Worcester Tornadoes in 2008. Grimes had a breakout season in in 2008, hitting .365 with 21 home runs, 57 RBI, and 17 stolen bases. He was named Can-AM Player of the Year that season.

His success didn't go unnoticed as the following season (2009) he was signed by the New York Mets organization. Grimes played one season for the Mets, splitting time between the GCL Mets(RK) and Brooklyn (A-).

A great signing by York. He's been one of the best players in the league the last two seasons. He's a five tool player who is exciting to watch.
