Former Major Leaguer, Rob Ducey, Will Join The Terriers In Florida As Guest Coach
Submitted By Dan Thompson on Sunday, November 28, 2010
Terriers baseball is pleased to announce Rob Ducey as a consultant, advisor and guest coach for our 3 teams while competing and practicing at St.

Petersburg Florida during the 2011 March school break. Rob is no stranger to Terriers, as he has attended a few winter workouts during the past 3 years and now will have the opportunity of observing the teams more extensively during the Florida trip. Rob has spent most of the past 26 years involved in professional baseball since leaving Cambridge in 1984. Although not playing baseball until 16 years old, his climb up the ladder was rapid from the time he signed with Toronto as an 18 year old. He played his first major league game at age 21. Between playing, coaching and scouting, Rob has had a taste of different aspects of the game on his journey. He played parts of 13 years in major league baseball with 6 different teams, plus 2 years in Japan and winter baseball in Venezuela. Also thrown into the mix has been his association with Greg Hamilton since 2003 assisting with the Canadian National and Olympic teams. Rob helps out with the National Youth team every fall and spring. He feels fortunate that while playing as a youngster in Cambridge he had quality people guiding him along the way, similar to the outstanding Terriers staff. Rob says, “The Terriers are receiving the finest instruction available from this coaching staff and they’re doing their best in making the game fun. They look out for their players’ best interests, regardless of whether it’s baseball, school or life in general. Education is a top priority and it certainly shows, from the number of graduating players who have gone on to college with academic and baseball scholarships. Having 11 players drafted by Major league teams is also impressive, especially since the organization has only been in existence since 2005.” Dickson Park in Cambridge is where Rob played his first ever baseball game, and he is very pleased the Terrier teams still play on the same field. As well as playing midget and junior in Dickson Park he also had the opportunity to be a Terrier while 16 years old. The Cambridge Terriers Sr team used Rob’s services for games as a fill in when ever needed. Now 26 years later he would like to give something back.
