Alumni Update - Chad Marshall
Submitted By Dan Thompson on Wednesday, January 22, 2014
If the game was on the line and you were defending a lead you would want the ball hit to shortstop Chad Marshall.
If the game was on the line and you needed a hit for the victory you would want Chad Marshall at the plate. Mr. Clutch.
Chad brought grit, heart, desire and a great work ethic every time he pulled on his uniform. Hailing from the small town of Paris Ontario , Marshall usually left the field with the most hits, the most runs scored, the most assists and the dirtiest uniform.
He was a member of several Terrier championship teams, including the 2006 WS in Nashville. Chad also bagged a National Championship ring at the 17u Canada Cup.
As a freshman at Stony Brook University, studying Biology+Sociology Chad was named to the America East All-Conference Team and to the Louisville Slugger All-American Team. The Seawolves won the conference that year but were eliminated by the Arizona State Sun Devils at the NCAA Regional tournament.
Following the 2009 college baseball season Chad spent his summer in Alaska where he helped his team come away with the league championship.
In 2010 he represented Canada at the World University Games in Tokyo and was named to the All-Tournament Team.
Chad wrapped up his senior year at Stony Brook in 2011 as first team All-Conference setting the record for games played. He also became the all time Seawolves hits leader.
Stony Brook opened their new field that spring and in typical Marshall fashion he had the first hit...a home run.
With his college career complete Chad moved west to Alberta and is currently the Director of Baseball Operations for Fort McMurray Baseball.
