Brandon Dailey Drafted By Cincinnati Reds
Submitted By Dan Thompson on Monday, June 7, 2010
Terriers shortstop Brandon Dailey was drafted in the 34th round today by the Reds.

Brandon came up through Brantford Minor Baseball playing for his Dad till the end of his Bantam year. During that season Terriers Sr Advisor Walt Jeffries spotted Brandon and reported back that he had found the Terriers starting shortstop for the next three years. He was right! Walt has an eye for talent, as he is also responsible for signing former big leaguer Rob Ducey from Cambridge Ontario. Brandon joined the Terriers in the fall of 2007 and has since gone on to even greater heights with Canada's National Junior Team. His electric arm gets the ball across the diamond at 87-89 mph. Over the past year and a half Brandon has played against Team USA, the Cuban National Team, extended spring + fall pro teams and several pro academies in the Dominican Republic. At shortstop with the Junior National Team during their recent tour of the Dominican, Brandon hit .339, had a .542 slugging percentage and a .448 on base percentage. He'll hit the road again in July for a US tour, in preparation for the Junior AAA World Championship, which will take place in late July. Brandon has won countless academic and athletic awards at his Brantford high school. Last November he acquired a NCAA D1 scholarship to Ohio University. Congratulations to Brandon and his family on being drafted by the Reds!
