Former Mississippi State infielder Seth Heck has signed an independent league contract with the Gateway Grizzlies.

Heck started at shortstop in his Frontier League debut on Saturday against another former Diamond Dog, Jaron Shepherd, of the Rockford Aviators. Heck went 1-for-3 with an infield single in the Grizzlies’ 3-2 win in 10 innings.

Heck lettered two seasons at MSU and hit .287 with four doubles and 12 RBIs as a senior this past season. He was a also two-time SEC Student-Athlete of the Year.

Heck joins former pitcher Lucas Laster as 2015 Bulldogs to ink with a Frontier League franchise.

I have covered Mississippi State in some capacity since 2004 and joined the Daily Journal staff in 2013. I enjoy short walks on the beach, performing concerts in my car and watching professional wrestling.
