Living his Dream: Wallace Signs With The Pirates
Sometimes to chase your dreams you have to make tough choices. Mike Wallace came to those crossroads when he had to make one of the most important decisions in the 21 years of his life. The First Team All-MAAC pitcher has decided to follow his dream and start his road in the minor leagues. Wallace has agreed to terms with the Pittsburgh Pirates organization and will forego his senior season, signing the contract he earned after being selected in the 30th round of the MLB draft this year.
“It was one of the most important decisions of my life,” Wallace said. “Leaving one of the greatest universities in the country and one that treated me extremely well is going to be tough. I have created the best friendships of my life here and I’ll never forget my time at Fairfield.”
