Cal Quantrill Earns Spot With Team Canada
Congratulations to RHP Cal Quantrill who will be off to Florida with Canada's Junior National Team later this fall. Team Canada will be preparing for the World Junior Baseball qualifier tournament, which will be hosted by Columbia later in November.
Cal joined the Terriers last fall and has had a remarkable year. After an excellent spring season, Cal got his summer off to a great start with a victory over the powerhouse Cincinnati Flames.
The following weekend he notched another win in the semi final game in Rochester. The best was yet to come however, as Cal was called upon to pitch the championship game in Nashville at the 17u World Series. Armed with an 86 mph fastball and pin point command, he put his team mates on his back, en route to a 2-0 complete game championship win over the Connecticut Tide.
Following his summer with the Terriers, Quantrill was off to Moncton NB with the Ontario Youth Team to compete for the 17u Canada Cup National Championship. Cal took the mound in the top of the third inning of the gold medal game, went five scoreless innings of no hit ball, as Ontario defeated Saskatchewan 3-2 to claim the title.
Cal is an excellent student and already has interest from several top universities in the United States.
Currently with the 18u Terriers, he got his first taste of college competition this past weekend, spinning two scoreless innings versus the NCAA D1 Binghamton University Bearcats.
The Terriers organization applauds Cal and his family on these many accomplishments, and wish him continued success academically and in his baseball career.
