Former Big Leaguer Rob Ducey Joins Terriers For Spring Training
The Terriers are pleased to announce that former MLB outfielder Rob Ducey will join the program as guest coach during their upcoming spring training trip to Tampa Florida. This will be the third time Rob has generously given of his time during March break.
After an outstanding college career at Seminole College in Florida, Rob signed his first pro contract in 1984. His MLB career spanned 13 years and over 700 games with the Bluejays, Angels, Rangers, Mariners, Phillies and Expos.
Ducey also spent two seasons with the Nippon Ham Fighters in Japan where he belted 51 homers. Further, Rob competed for Canada at the 2004 Summer Olympics and served as a coach at the 2006 World Baseball Classic and 2008 Olympics.
Rob will be inducted into the Canadian Baseball Hall of Fame on Saturday June 29, 2013.
" I was very excited and honoured to hear about my induction. I'm also very thankful and appreciative for being thought of in this light", said Ducey. "I want to be- and have been- creative in my approach to this game. Along my travels, I have met many good people and developed tremendous friendships. I'm a baseball lifer and I hope to continue to work in the game in one capacity or another".
The Terriers are very thankful to Rob for his time and expertise, and look forward to having him on board during spring training.
