South Carolina senior outfielder Graham Saiko is no
longer a part of the baseball program, head coach Chad Holbrook announced
"Graham is a terrific young man that has done great
things both on the field and in the classroom," said South Carolina head coach
Chad Holbrook. "At this time, Graham and
I have mutually agreed that it is in his best interest to focus his attention
on obtaining his degree from the University of South Carolina. We certainly appreciate all Graham has given
to our baseball program and we wish him well in his future endeavors."
Saiko started 56 games last year for the Gamecocks and
hit .263 (52-for-198) with 38 runs scored, seven doubles, a pair of homers and
29 RBI. He also stole 12 bases and put
together a .382 on-base percentage.
