Ole Miss signee and Louisville Slugger All-American, Dan Black, was choosen as the #2 prospect in the state of Indiana by Baseball America.
Andrew is also a big time pitching prospect. He went 8-0 on with a 0.64 ERA and 88 strikeouts on the mound as a junior.
His sophomore season he led New Palestine to a 30-4 record and their first ever ISHAA State Championship.
Andrew tossed a three-hitter and recorded a two run home run to clinch the 3-2 victory in the championship game. On the mound he recorded a 10-0 record with a 0.22 ERA. Andrew also batted .424 with 10 home runs and 41 RBI's his sophomore's season.
Clark had arm surgery in December and was not able to pitch this season.

This is Ole Miss' second signee to be selected as the Gatorade Player of the Year this season as Justin Reed won the Mississippi Gatorade Player of the Year.
The Ole Miss '05/'06 baseball class had 5 Louisville Slugger All-Americans in Andrew Clark, Tyler McMullen, Dan Black, Matt Holliman, and Justin Reed.
The five selections were the second most in the country behind the Texas Longhorns.
