*Major Announcement* - Terriers Named Junior Affiliate Of The Powerhouse Sr Intercounty Brantford Red Sox
The SR Intercounty defending Champion Brantford Red Sox have named the defending PBLO Champion Terriers as a junior affiliate.
“Players can enter our program at 16, graduate to our 18 and under program, have the opportunity to attain a scholarship and move on to college baseball.
Now they can come home for the summer and potentially play with the Red Sox. It is a seamless 4 or 5 year process”, stated an elated Terriers President John Benvie.
The Terriers are grateful to the Brantford Red Sox organization for this opportunity to work together.
The Red Sox roster boasts several ex-pro, Olympic and NCAA Division 1 players. ”The chance to be in the clubhouse and on the road with players like Lee Delfino, Steve Murray (Blue Jays), Hung Cho (Mariners) and John Ogiltree (Tigers) will be a great experience for me. I will learn something new every time out. I can't wait to pick their brains”, said Terriers catcher Jeff Skelhorne-Gross. Jeff graduates the Terriers program at the end of this summer and will become a Bearcat, on scholarship at Binghamton University (NCAA Division 1-America East Conference).
The Terriers-Red Sox rivalry dates back over 75 years. Both organizations are steeped in tradition and have battled on several occasions for Senior IC Championships. Rivals no more.
