Pitcher Dan Marcacci is beginning his second season with the Otters after re-signing on December 7th.
Marcacci began his rookie season with Evansville last year, going 6-3 with a 4.48 earned run average. The right-hander made 14 starts on the season, walking just 26 hitters in 92 1/3 innings.
Dan also pitched that spring season for the University of Southern Indiana here in Evansville. He finished the year with a team-low 1.80 earned run average and also helped guide the Screaming Eagles to a 2010 NCAA Division II Championship. He recorded the final six outs of that game as USI was named National Champions.
Marcacci threw two seasons at Florida Atlantic University to begin his college career.
Dan threw a perfect game in high school, striking out 14 batters in a game against Palm Beach Lakes. Marcacci also went to the same high school as former Evansville Otter outfielder Vinnie Scarduzio.
