Flurry Of Activity Around Terriers' Camp!
Submitted By Dan Thompson on Monday, February 23, 2009
Although it is the middle of the winter, there is plenty going on with the Terriers on several fronts. Over the past month and a half several pro scouts have visited the winter home of the Terriers, Peak Performance Athletics. After a visit from retired big leaguer Rob Ducey in late January, Toronto Blue Jays Canadian Supervisor of scouting, Kevin Briand, was in the house to oversee the SR Terriers work out.

Kevin's counterpart, Bill Byckowski from the Cincinnatti Reds was next in to monitor how the Terriers 2009 pro prospects were coming along. Bill drafted Terriers alumni RHP Benson Merritt in last years draft. The highlight of the winter thus far came this past weekend. The Major League Scouting Bureau hosted their first pre draft camp in Mississauga on Saturday. There were 12 Terriers invited to the event! Armed with radar guns and their note pads, professional scouts from the Blue Jays, Mariners, Giants, Angels, Reds, Mets, Brewers, Phillies, Athletics and Padres were all in attendance. Terriers lefty ace, Mitch Clarke gave them what they came for. Mitch toed the rubber and began to unleash fastballs from 86 to 90 mph! Joel Stubbs, Jeff Hunt and Tanner Nivins also impressed with the bat. Following the Saturday camp, Walt Burrows (MLB Scouting Supervisor) attended the Terriers Sunday night workouts. Walt was gracious enough to take the time from his busy schedule to speak to players and parents for 35 minutes. This was a great experience for all. Thanks Walt. It's been a long winter and cabin fever is beginning to sneak in, but there is light at the end of the tunnel! In less than two weeks the SR Terriers are off to Boca Raton Florida for the programs annual March break trip. During their trek south, the Terriers will be matched against US college competition, including powerhouse Miami-Dade. They are nationally ranked 5th in the country. On their off day the Terriers will attend an NCAA Division 1 college game between Rutgers and Florida Atlantic University.
