Tucson - Day 1
The Ontario Terriers kicked off its Arizona Fall trip Friday at the Kino Sports Complex in Tuscon, AZ. Upon arriving at the complex the Terriers were shown to their clubhouse to prepare for a full day of workouts and games. The Terrier coaching staff have some special guest coaches who will be spending the next few days working with the players.

Bill Percy from Colorado, who is currently a member of the MLB International Envoy program, and Adam Christ, who is the Minnesota State University Associate Head Coach, were actively working with our players during the workouts and games. The 15U Terriers kicked off the day with a hard fought 6-4 loss to the 15U Tuscon Badgers. Tony Zhang, Christian Bottero, and Matthew Bracnick were the offensive stars. In the 16U game, the Terriers faced off against 16U Tucson Badgers in what turned out to be a pitchers duel with the Terriers dropping a close 1-0 game. Ben Abram, Ethan Seaver, and Carter Seabrooke were outstanding on the mound. The night cap saw the 17/18U Terriers play the 18U Tucson Badgers under the lights at Kino Veterans Stadium. The Terriers held it close and were tied 1-1 after the second inning, but they couldn't hold off the potent offense of the Badgers, losing 11-4. Reagan Manley, Matthew Vollmer, and Justin Wamboldt led the offensive attack. Saturday's action will see all Terriers teams taking on the Nogales Apaches. In addition, the Terriers will also be having workouts and a special visit by former MLB player and University of Arizona Assistant Coach Shelley Duncan.
