Former Husker Pat Kelly Signed by Saltdogs

Former Nebraska second baseman Pat Kelly has been signed by the Lincoln Saltdogs.

Kelly, who played for NU from 2012-2014, ranks 20th on the Huskers’ all-time hits list with 212.  Now, he’ll be returning to Haymarket Park to play for the Saltdogs, who are an independent professional team.

Kelly played last season for Minnesota’s single-A affiliate in Cedar Rapids, hitting .220 with three home runs and 30 RBI in 95 games.  He was selected by the Twins in the 12th round of the 2014 MLB Draft.
