NORTH CHARLESTON, SC (WCSC) - A former outfielder for the Charleston RiverDogs has swapped his bat for a hockey stick in a deal that brings him to the South Carolina Stingrays. Justin Milo skated in two games for the Alaska Aces of the East Coast Hockey League this season tallying one assist.
Milo played for the RiverDogs in 2010 after being drafted by the Yankees in the 37th round of the 2009 First Year Player Draft. In 16 games with Charleston, Milo posted a .231 batting average, knocking in 4 RBI, and scoring 8 runs.
After a collegiate career at Cornell and the University of Vermont in which he lit the lamp 24 times and had 27 assists, Milo rejoins former Vermont teammate Patrick Cullity in North Charleston.
The deal for the 23-year-old forward was announced by Stingrays Head Coach and Director of Hockey Operations Cail MacClean Wednesday. Terms of the contract were not disclosed.
