Waterloo, IA – The Waterloo Bucks, a member of the Northwoods League, have announced the signing of catcher/first baseman Kyle Pollock to their roster for the 2013 season. Pollock, a sophomore at the University of Evansville, will join fellow Aces Kevin Kaczmarski and Jake Mahon on Waterloo’s roster for the team’s 19th season.
This season for Evansville, Pollock is hitting .228 with 16 RBI in 52 games. The 6’0", 195-pounder owns a .325 on-base percentage to go along with 41 hits on the season. "Kyle can play at first base and can catch for us," said Bucks general manager Dan Corbin. 
"He’s got a plus-arm behind the plate and plays well defensively. He’s a right-handed power bat. He had a great summer last year in the Great Lakes League and we look forward to him wearing Bucks pinstripes this summer."
In 2012, Pollock played for the Stark County Terriers of the Great Lakes Summer Collegiate League where he led the league in batting with a .424 average. The Canton, Ohio native finished the season with eight home runs and 20 RBI in 30 games and was named an All-Star.

Born August 15, 1992, Pollock attended Westerville Central High School where he hit .505 with a .829 slugging percentage throughout his prep career. Pollock was named first team All-State and All-District as a senior.
