06/19/2007 4:16 PM -

KANSAS CITY, Kan. – Manager Andy McCauley and the Kansas City T-Bones of the independent Northern League announced today the signing of former Northern League All-Star Geoff McCallum.

McCallum spent the better part of the last four seasons playing for McCauley in Schaumburg.  McCallum was signed mid-season last year by the Florida Marlins.  He played in 33 games for the Marlins’ Class-A affiliate in Jupiter, Florida after his acquisition last summer

“We’re happy to get Geoff.  He’s a perennial Northern League All-Star,” said McCauley.  “We will look for him to give us a lot of production at the top of our lineup.”

McCallum is a lifetime .284 hitter with 11 home runs and 234 RBI.  He hit a career high .358 with the Schaumburg Flyers in 2004.  He also had his career best on-base percentage of .418 in 93 games.

McCallum is expected to be in the lineup today against the Calgary Vipers at CommunityAmerica Ballpark.  First pitch is scheduled for 7:05.

Other Notes:  In a separate move the T-Bones traded veteran shortstop Donaldo Mendez to the Newark Bears of the independent Atlantic League in exchange for future considerations.  The T-Bones also released rookie pitcher Larkin Braxton.
