2023 World Baseball Classic: Player Profile
The Canadian National Baseball team has recently announced the inclusion of three talented players to their roster for the upcoming 2023 World Baseball Classic. Among these players are Owen Cassie, Trevor Brigden, and Mitchell Bratt, each bringing their unique skills and experiences to the team.
Owen Cassie, a young outfielder drafted in the 2nd round by the San Diego Padres (now with the Chicago Cubs), has shown impressive speed and power at the plate. He has caught the attention of scouts with his agility in the outfield and his ability to make quick and accurate throws.
Trevor Brigden, on the other hand, is a seasoned player who was drafted in the 17th round by the Tampa Bat Rays. He is a rare player with the mental toughness required to play at the next level. He is a skilled RHP who thrives in high-pressure situations and wants the ball in his hands. His leadership skills and experience will undoubtedly be an advantage both on and off the field.
Finally, Mitchell Bratt is a hard-throwing pitcher drafted in the 3rd round by the Texas Rangers. He is well-regarded for his ability to strike out batters with ease, boasting a diverse arsenal of pitches and a competitive edge that makes him a formidable opponent for any team.
Under the guidance of Coach Q, Cassie and Bratt made a name for themselves at the 2019 Canada Cup, representing Ontario and earning silver medals for their outstanding performance. Brigden, too, had previously demonstrated his skills, finishing with a silver medal in the 2009 Ontario Baseball Championship while playing for Coach Q's West Toronto 16u team.
The inclusion of these three talented players to the Canadian national baseball team bodes well for their performance in the upcoming World Baseball Classic.
