Aaron Wagner Off To West Coast
Submitted By Dan Thompson on Thursday, August 13, 2009
Terriers' catcher Aaron Wagner will be making the long trip west to New Westminster, BC later this month to assume catching duties for the Douglas College Royals. The Royals play in the NWAACC Conference, with teams from Washington State. What Aaron has meant to the Terriers organization is immeasurable. He has spent the past two winters catching bullpens for his pitching staff, helping prepare them for the season ahead, always sacrificing his own BP, only to make up for it on his own time.

Aaron leaves the Terriers with a lifetime batting average of .330, which includes a countless number of game winning clutch hits. During a game last fall Aaron sustained severe injuries to his head. While tracking a pop up, he ran into a dugout pillar and then crashed to the cement floor below. He was taken to the hospital in an ambulance because he had suffered a grade two concussion (followed by two and a half months of post concussion syndrome), 10 stitches, six chipped teeth, ended up getting five fillings, two crowns and had one tooth completely relocated. He is a gritty competitor, and as he does on the field, fought through this blow life dealt him and returned to the Terriers lineup. Aaron was an integral part of the Terriers 2009 PBLO Championship, 14 and 5 summer tournament record and subsequent march to the World Series championship final game. At the Terriers end of season trophy presentations, Aaron received the Terriers Award of Merit in recognition of sportsmanship, dedication and perseverance. Beginning in 2010, this trophy will be renamed the "Aaron Wagner Award" in his honor. Congratulations to Aaron and his family! Good luck at Douglas College! Special thanks to Head Coach Josh Ridgway for extending Aaron this opportunity. More about Douglas College...
