Matt Betts Is Bama Bound !
Submitted By Dan Thompson on Thursday, June 24, 2010
The heart and soul of the Terriers pitching staff, Matt Betts has about five starts left in his Terriers career this summer before he heads south to the University of West Alabama (NCAA D2). Nation wide polls annually rank the Tigers in the top 25. Matt hits the picturesque Livingston Alabama campus in late August, and will be studying English and Journalism. Matt grew up playing in the Brantford Red Sox organization.

Before joining the Terriers, Betts closed out his bantam season with an Ontario AAA Championship and was awarded the MVP honors. In his 16u year with the Terriers he was named Top Pitcher, and has rolled to a 23-3 record thus far as a major cog in the pitching staff. He has also recorded 8 saves. This year "Bettsy" leads all Terrier pitchers with 9 wins, coupled with a stellar 1.32 ERA. He is a leader in the dugout, on the field and also in the community, as Matt is the assistant baseball coach at North Park Collegiate High School. Matt commands three pitches and seldom walks a hitter. He is consistent, reliable and wants the ball in key situations and in big games. He started the 2009 World Series Championship game in Nashville, allowing just two runs versus the powerhouse Connecticut Americans. Matt has spun two no hitters over the past year, and has given up just one hit on two other occasions. The entire Terriers coaching staff can't say enough about the pleasure it has been to have Matt as part of the program. His work ethic, willingness to take advice and desire to succeed is a tremendous example for all, and we are very proud of his accomplishments on and off the field. Congratulations to Matt and his family and best of luck as a Tiger!
