Former Big Leaguer Rob Ducey Spends The Night Instructing Terriers Hitters
Submitted By Dan Thompson on Sunday, January 25, 2009
Cambridge's own, Rob Ducey was at the winter home of the Terriers Sunday night to provide inspiration and instruction to both the 16u and 18u hitters. Rob spent four hours in the cages working with the boys, sharing the same expertise he has provided to present big leaguers, and National Team players alike. Rob discussed how important it was to step into the box with a plan, together with being mentally prepared.

He also made some small mechanical adjustments, as he put hitter after hitter through the paces. Rob spent 13 years in Major League Baseball as a player. He was signed to his first pro contract by the Blue Jays scout and present Terriers Senior Advisor, Walt Jeffries in 1984. Ducey also suited up for the Angels, Texas Rangers, Seattle Mariners, Phillies and Expos. Further he spent a season in the Japanese pro league. Rob also donned the maple leaf in 2004 at the Athens Olympics. He was Canada's DH. Presently Rob resides in Tarpon Springs Florida, and is responsible for advance scouting of the Yankees, Red Sox and Rays for the Jays. This is not the first time Rob has instructed with the Terriers. He also helped out on the Terriers March break trip in 2007 and last winter at PPA. The Terriers are very grateful to Rob for taking the time out of his busy schedule to spend an evening with us. Thank you Rob, and good luck with the upcoming season.
