Whitbread Named to 18U Team Canada Junior National Baseball Team
tuesday october 21, 2014



Tyler Whitbread from Camlachie was named in September to the 31 man 18U roster for Team Canada Junior National Baseball team.

 

The 17 year old right handed pitcher was in Orlando Florida from Oct 2 - 12 attending the Fall Instructional League camp.

 

The camp included daily practices and a nine-game exhibition schedule against Major League Baseball Fall Instructional League clubs from the Atlanta Braves, Houston Astros, Washington Nationals and Toronto Blue Jays.

 

Whitbread will return to Florida to St. Petersburg during the March break for spring training. 

The training camps not only offers the players a chance to represent their country while improving their skills but will also provides plenty of exposure from colleges and and professional scouts who use the training camp as an opportunity for talent evaluation.

All trips are in preparation for the  2015 IBAF 18U World Cup in Nishinomiya, Japan.

 

Whitbread is in Grade 12 at St. Clair Secondary School and a former player for the Sarnia Braves. He is now playing for the Great Lake Canadians, a team out of London that is coached by former pro players Adam Arnold, Chris Robinson, Adam Stern and Kirk Barclay.  The Great Lakes team plays mainly against US Teams and Colleges.
