Jeff Hunt Inks Pro Contract
Submitted By Dan Thompson on Friday, July 10, 2009
Cambridge, ON - After a two week road trip that took him to North Carolina and Cuba with Canada's Junior National Team, Jeff Hunt was supposed to rejoin his Terriers teammates in Ohio for the Buckeye Tournament. Instead he will be off to Arizona, joining a new set of teammates at Rookie Ball in the LA Dodgers chain. Jeff was drafted by the Dodgers in the 15th round in early June, which immediately put he and his family at a crossroads.

Sign a contract and begin the journey through the Dodgers minor league system or report to Ohio University on the scholarship he had acquired last fall. Kind of a nice problem to have! After a lot of thought, he has decided that he would like to take a run at life in professional baseball. The Cambridge native joined the Terriers as a 16 year old. He has spent the past three years at both first and third base, and as a senior this year was also called to the mound to close out several games, of which he did an admirable job. Dating back to the fall of 2008 Jeff has had zero blown saves over 11 opportunities. He has also done mop up duties with the Junior National Team at times. His pitching days are over however because the Dodgers are intrigued by his left handed power at the plate. Congratulations to Jeff and his family on this great opportunity. The Terriers wish him the best of luck in professional baseball!
