Joe Mahoney comes home

TROY --   Catholic Central grad -- and former South Troy Dodgers' slugger Joe Mahoney -- is back home in the Collar City for the holiday.  He's thankful for his wife and infant daughter.  And he's looking forward to his next major league opportunity.

Mahoney became a free agent for the first time earlier this month.

Over the past two seasons, he has enjoyed big league cups-of-coffee with the Orioles and Marlins, appearing in 11 total games.  On April 20th of this year, he picked-up his first major league base hit -- an RBI-single in Cincinnati off of Bronson Arroyo..

Later that week -- in Minnesota -- Mahoney's finest day as a big leaguer.  The 26-year-old 1st-basemen went 4-for-8 during a doubleheader against the Twins.

Then three days after that -- in Miami -- his first, and so far only major league home run came against Cubs' righthander Scott Feldman.  The ball landed in the upper deck at spacious marlins park.  And yes -- Mahoney did get the baseball back for safe keeping.

Mahoney expects to sign with a new club sometime in the next few weeks. 

And -- he reports -- that after battling oblique and hamstring injuries throughout this past season, Mahoney is now fully healthy.
