Ajax, ON – The iCASE Baseball Academy won three of four games over the Ontario Prospects in a home-and-home series on the Sept. 14-15 weekend, splitting on Saturday at Stratford’s National Stadium with a 3-1 loss followed by a 8-3 win, and then sweeping both ends of a doubleheader 8-5 and 6-4 on Sunday at Ajax’s Betty Bujold Park. The Huskies Fall Ball overall record now stands at five wins against two losses.
Thunder Bay’s Cameron McDougall had a stellar weekend both behind the plate as well as at second base on defense. Cam also stroked some key base hits against the Prospects, an organization headed by former Major League brothers Rob & Rich Butler.
“Cam has a lot to offer to the iCASE Baseball Academy, and there are more players just like him in the northern part of the province that we’d love to have here as well,” said field manager/GM Tom Valcke.
“He’s and all-business kind of guy, he understands that getting better at baseball is like climbing a staircase – that there are no elevators in baseball. Training daily here during the school year gives him access to better weather, facilities, coaching and US competition that he is not able to access up in the north and he’ll return to T-Bay twice the player he was when he got here.”
The Avon Maitland District School Board has partnered with the International Canadian Academy of Sports Excellence, a college-prep program, in providing a quality education at Stratford Northwestern Secondary School that grants the student-athletes credits for their 11th and 12th grade baseball training courses toward their Ontario Secondary School Diploma.
