Bruce Yari Headed To West Coast
Congratulations to Bruce Yari and his family as he has committed to the UBC Thunderbirds this past week.
Bruce will make his away across the country this coming August to begin his post secondary education and college baseball career at one of Canada's top universities. He will be studying economics and commerce.
UBC is also the only Canadian university that plays a daunting US baseball schedule. The Thunderbirds are consistently ranked in the top 10 nationally amongst NAIA competition.
Bruce joined the Terriers after his bantam year and made an immediate impact positionally (1B/OF), on the mound, and as a hitting presence in the heart of the order. Over the past three years with the program he has garnered several Player of the Week Awards and most recently was named an MVP at Terriers awards day in December. He was also a member of the Ontario Youth Team which came away with the gold medal at the 2011 17u Baseball Canada Cup.
Bruce possesses lightning in his bat from the left side, and also hits for average. He has done a tremendous job on his strength and conditioning, which has physically prepared him for the next level. This scholarship is well deserved and the entire organization wishes Bruce the best of luck at UBC.
