COLUMBIA – South Carolina senior outfielder Graham Saiko is no longer a part of the baseball program, head coach Chad Holbrook announced Tuesday afternoon.
“Graham is a terrific young man that has done great things both on the field and in the classroom,” Holbrook said. “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.
South Carolina begins fall team practice this weekend.
