David Berg, the Grasshoppers new field manager for the 2012 season, made a pre-season visit to NewBridge Bank Park this morning to meet with the media, fans and friends of the Hoppers.
Berg was selected by the Florida/Miami Marlins out of the University of Miami in the
38th round of the 1993 First-Year Player Draft. When he made his Major
League debut for the Marlins on April 2, 1998, he became the lowest-ever
draft pick by Florida to reach the Major Leagues. He hit a career best
for the Marlins in 1998 with a .313 average. Following the 2001 season,
Berg signed with Toronto where he played for three seasons. Berg finally
retired following the 2006 season.
Berg hit .269 in 582 Major League contests and .288 in 665 Minor League
games, while playing primarily in the infield.
