Bierce '09 Competes for Spot on Ripken Reality Show

Go Leopards!

Aug. 7, 2012

EASTON, Pa. - Former Lafayette standout shortstop Daniel Bierce '09 was one of approximately 70 baseball players who tried out for a reality TV show with Cal Ripken, Jr. The show entitled "The Player with Cal Ripken, Jr." features amateur baseball players competing against one another for a professional development contract next season with the Baltimore Orioles.

Bierce survived the first elimination round, when 30 potential reality T.V. stars were cut. Bierce then competed with the remaining 40 players in a baseball game at Aberdeen Ironbirds Stadium in Aberdeen, Md., home of the Class A Short-Season affiliate of the Baltimore Orioles. After the game, the field was knocked down to 25 and the former Leopard Bierce was one of those chosen to continue. He will now work out with Cal Ripken, Jr. and Billy Ripken in hopes of making the final cut.

Daniel Bierce was a two-time All-Patriot League selection and holds Lafayette records in games played (194) and doubles in a season (18). Bierce finished his career on College Hill with a .383 batting average in his senior season as well as five home runs, 40 runs batted in and 39 runs scored. He also is second on Lafayette's all-time list in at-bats (656) and tied for fifth in hits (197). Bierce is currently an assistant baseball coach at Moravian.
