D'Backs SS Pennington Has Number Retired at Carroll
CORPUS CHRISTI (Kiii Sports) - The Carroll Tigers have several notable alumni baseball wise, and Saturday major league shortstop Cliff Pennington was honored by having his number retired at the school.
Pennington's #7 was put on the Tigers' board alongside former major leaguer Brooks Kieschnick. Pennington is about to begin his sixth major league season, but first with the Arizona Diamondbacks. The former Tiger and Texas A&M Aggie was drafted by the Oakland Athletics and spent his entire career to date with the A's before he was traded to Arizona back in October.
