BEARS SIGN FIRST PLAYER OF 2004

And He Looks Very Familiar

 

February 19, 2004: Outstanding centerfielder Mike Piercy has become the first player to sign with the Bears for the 2004 season. Piercy, who grew up in New Jersey and played with his idol Rickey Henderson on the 2003 Bears team, has friends and family here, and, he says, "It is a great feeling to be playing right in my back yard." Piercy, popular with the fans, was a speed demon on the diamond last year, stealing 29 bases. He batted .319 and had an on-base percentage of .385. Manager Bill Madlock expects Piercy to be his leadoff hitter this season.
