Canaries Ink Veteran Infielder

With less than a month to go before opening day, the Sioux Falls Canaries have added a minor league veteran to their roster.

The American Association team signing infielder Shelby Ford, a career .262 hitter with 33 home runs and 257 RBI across eight seasons.

Ford, mainly a second baseman, is a former third round draft pick of the Pittsburgh Pirates out of Oklahoma State.

He played six seasons in the Pirates system and appeared in 94 games with Class AAA Indianapolis before opting for independent baseball in 2012.

Last season, he hit .315 with 34 RBI in 37 games with the United League’s Fort Worth Cats, before finishing the season with the now-defunct El Paso Diablos of the American Association, going 5-for-13 in four games.

The Canaries open the 2014 season at home Thursday, May 15th, against Sioux City.
