18U Terriers Welcome Francis Cubos To Coaching Staff
Francis Cubos, "CUBES" is one of the hardest working, dedicated coaches on the Ontario baseball scene. From an instructional standpoint, he is well rounded with advanced expertise in catching and is a welcome addition to the Terriers organization.
Francis played his youth baseball in Toronto and was a member of the 1997 Canon Cup championship team. He went on to play his college baseball at Lake Michigan College.
As a catcher for the Indians "Cubes" shut down the MCCAA Conference competition's running game with his strong arm and outstanding blocking skills. With a 2.0 pop time and an unbelievable 45% throw out ratio, coupled with a .295 batting average, Francis quickly established himself as the Indians number one catcher.
At the completion of his college career, Francis began what has now been ten years as a coach. Like Shawn Lynn, he was key in founding the Canadian Baseball Hall of Famers, and has since gone on to coach several excellent players that have played US college baseball. Francis was also selected to coach in the 2006 PBLO All Star game and assisted with tryouts and selection of the 2006 and 2007 Ontario Youth Team.
Francis is passionate about coaching and instruction. His players are always well prepared and the Terriers welcome the wide range of coaching skills he brings to the program.
