Repko Announces Retirement


York Revolution outfielder Jason Repko announced his retirement prior to Saturday’s game in Southern Maryland. Repko batted .272 with 4 HR and 16 RBI in 42 games for the Revs this season. A respected veteran and popular teammate, we certainly wish Repko the best.  The MLB vet helped put the Revs in position for a first half crown this season, as the team enters Saturday’s game with a magic number of 6. The timing comes after the Revs acquired Kevin Rivers on Thursday, who can play corner outfield along with first base. The Revs currently have 12 position players on the roster.  (Repko photo by Joe Doll)
