Henry Signs With Cincinnati
Submitted By Dan Thompson on Tuesday, July 17, 2007
In a weekend full of happy announcements, Mike Henry of Sombra, On (near Sarnia) signed a 2008 contract with the Cincinnati Reds, after being selected in the 46th round of the June MLB draft. Henry will be going to Florida in the Sept. for instructional league, with a decision on further assignment to be made later. A product of Sarnia Minor Baseball, the 17 year old, 6'3", 190 lb. Henry is a right hand pitcher.

He joined the Terriers in 2006 and saw his stock boosted immensely over the past few months with regular indoor work outs over the winter and pitching against the high calibre teams the Inter County Terriers schedule games with during the fall in New York and spring trip to Florida. His velocity is up to the high 80's and he has touched low 90's. Henry, a converted catcher, played for the Sarnia midgets under coach Jim Biggars before joining the Terriers. Henry was joined by his parents and Ed Heather, senior advisor for the Inter County Terriers as he signed the contract for Bill Byckowski, Canadian Director of Scouting for the Reds on Sunday night in London. When signing Henry, Mr. Byckowski "Mike has one of the best arms in the country and now has to work on his command and feel for other pitches. Arms like Mike's are very scarce for a 17 year old." Henry is one of two Inter County Terriers drafted in the June draft. Terrell Alliman of Waterloo, a right hand hitting outfielder was chosen in the 43 round by the California Angels and has yet to come to terms with the team.
