Five Terrier Alumni Selected By Cbn
The Terriers organization extends their congratulations to Cole Peragine, David Head, Brian Doran, Jordan Mountford and Simon Clarke all of whom were selected to the 2013 Canadian Baseball Network All- Canadian Team.
The 14th annual selections were determined by voters including twenty two coaches from elite programs to colleges on both sides of the border.
Further, twelve scouts, ten CBN writers, baseball executives, GMs, front office staff, statisticians, six former players, writers, broadcasters and one agent all had a hand in the process.
Peragine patrols shortstop at Stony Brook University. He hit .289 with a homer and 19 RBIs. Besides flashing a steady glove, he was also the toughest out on the team. He fanned only once every 10.1 at bats. Cole helped lead the Seawolves to the NCAA D1 College World Series in 2012.
Third baseman David Head put up remarkable offensive numbers at NE Colorado. He hit .387 with 17 doubles and had 44 RBIs. His best game was a 4-4 outing in which he doubled and knocked in five runs. The NJCAA D1 Plainsman won the Empire Conference this past season.
Brian Doran and Jordan Mountford both play outfield at NCAA D1 schools in the north east. Brian hit .313 in 44 games for the Maine Black Bears. He had 11 doubles, a triple, a homer and 23 RBIs. Maine won the America East title.
Jordan racked up a .317 average, had 17 doubles, 3 triples, 3 homers and 22 RBIs for the Bryant University Bulldogs. Jordan was named MVP at the NE Conference tournament where he went 10-19 to propel the Bulldogs to the NCAA D1 Regionals.
Six-foot five inch Simon Clarke plays first base in Texas for the Odessa College Wranglers. Simon put up staggering offensive numbers in 2013, hitting .384 with 10 doubles, two triples, six homers and 42 RBIs. He finished with an impressive 1.044 OPS.
Other Terriers that got honorable mention in this years selections were Mattingly Romanin (Chicago State University), Aaron Palmer (Riverland CC) and Robert Grilli (Salt Lake CC).
Both Romanin and Grilli play short stop while Palmer plays outfield.
Over the past seven years 26 Terrier alumni have received All- Canadian CBN honors.
