Mitchell, Furdal, Linseman And Hunt Selected To Ontario Youth Team
Following in the footsteps of Senior Terrier Chad Marshall, who was the only Terrier selected to the Ontario Youth Team in 2006, catcher Brent Mitchell, third baseman Jeff Hunt, right hander Brad Furdal and lefty Nathan Linseman were all selected to this year’s squad. The Terrier foursome will travel to Quebec City in early August to compete at the 17u Canada Cup National Championship.
Ontario opens the tournament on day one with games against British Columbia and Quebec.
Two of Ontario's games are slated to be televised. It should be a memorable experience for the boys, as Quebec was chosen as the host because it is their 400th Anniversary. There will be plenty of events and festivities throughout the city.
The tryout process for this team began just over a month ago, with over 185 players trying out. 40 players from across the province were selected and have attended the final tryout this weekend. The final 20 man roster was announced Friday evening.
Brent, Brad, Nathan and Jeff will all try to help Ontario win their third consecutive Canada Cup National Championship next month
