Hurricanes baseball prepare for 2014 with first identification camp on Saturday
February 6, 2014
The Holland Hurricanes varsity baseball team will hit the indoor field at the Stratford soccer facility this Saturday from 3:30pm to 5:30pm. This will be the first workout on the turf and the coaching staff will be running potential players through a series of drills as part of their identification process.
The Hurricanes have recently been accepted into the Canadian Collegiate Baseball Association’s Atlantic Conference for the fall of 2014 where they will compete against maritime universities including St. Mary’s, St. FX, UNB, Cape Breton, Dalhousie and Crandall.
Last week the Hurricanes received confirmation from middle infielder, Dillon Doucette and left-handed pitcher, Taylor Larkin that they had committed to the program. Both have collegiate experience in the United States and are from Prince Edward Island.
Head coach Andrew MacNevin intends to have one more identification session in mid-March before the players will join their summer teams for the start of their seasons. The coaching staff will monitor player’s performances throughout the summer months and prepare for the start of the CCBA regular season in September.
Anyone interested in trying out for the Hurricanes are encouraged to attend Saturday’s session in Stratford. Players must be full-time Holland College students during the season to play on the team but you do not have to be a current Holland College student to attend Saturday’s session; whether you are a high school student, at another institution or not currently at a post-secondary institution you are encouraged to attend and participate. Holland College representatives will be on hand to offer information to anyone interested in studying at Holland College in September 2014.
