Paul Quantrill Brings Big League Experience To Terrier Coaching Ranks
Submitted By Dan Thompson on Thursday, June 10, 2010
"You spend a good piece of your life gripping a baseball and in the end it turns out that it was the other way around all the time". After 14 years in the big leagues Paul Quantrill is still not at the end of what has been a wonderful life in baseball. He is joining the Terriers as the overall Program Pitching Coordinator and 17u pitching coach. Before donning Terriers blue and gold this fall, Paul will be inducted into the Canadian Baseball Hall of Fame on June 19th in St.Mary's, Ontario.

Our congratulations go out to Paul and all of his family on this tremendous honor. At the age of 23, Quantrill made his MLB debut with the Boston Red Sox and went on to pitch in 841 games for the Phillies, Blue Jays, Dodgers, Yankees, Padres and Marlins. Quite a career for the proud Port Hope Ontario native. After 14 years in pro baseball, Paul's chance to represent Canada came next, when he was chosen to wear the maple leaf at the 2006 World Baseball Classic. At it's conclusion, he retired with a sparkling 3.83 career ERA, and having pitched more innings than any Canadian in the history of the game. His country called again in 2009, this time to join the coaching staff and help groom the next generation of Canadian talent at the WBC. Paul has since continued with Baseball Canada and is presently the Junior National Team pitching coach. At the conclusion of this summer's Junior AAA World Championship he'll begin to share his expertise with coaches Greg Coughlin, Shawn Lynn and all of the Terrier pitchers (16u, 17u + 18u). The knowledge he will pass along from his life in baseball affords every young man in the Terriers Baseball program a fantastic opportunity to learn from a pro that earned a reputation as a durable big leaguer with impeccable control. Paul Quantrill is an inspiration to all young Canadian ball players and we are very proud to have him in the Terriers organization. Welcome to Paul, his wife Alyson and their children, Avery (8), Reese (12) and Cal (15). More about Paul Quantrill...
