A NO HITTER and an OFFENSIVE CLINIC

The following EBA players had an unbelievable month of June and were able to show continuous domination of their respective leagues.

BEN MacDOUGALL (PeeWee AAA from Summerside, PEI – 13yrs old)

Back in the middle of June Ben MacDougall pitched a NO HITTER while striking out 13 out of 15 batters in the process. On this same night MacDougall went on to provide the offense for his team as well, smashing two HR’s to right center field. These types of games don’t happen to often for baseball players so this will definitely be one to cherish and hold onto for Ben MacDougall.

Ben MacDougall wasn’t satisfied with this performance in early June as he most recently struck 8 out of 9 batters in tournament play in Bedford, NS. Not to mention he hit another HR this game as well.

MacDougall participated in EBA’s 6 month Pitchers Bootcamp, and Winter Training Program during the 2013/14 winter. “MacDougall showed up every night with a purpose to develop his skills and better himself as strong two way player. I think it’s safe to say that Ben MacDougall will be a special player to watch as he will get bigger and stronger in years to come,” this quote coming from Academy President Jason Monaghan.

Nick Havenga (PeeWee AAA from Cornwall, PEI – 13yrs old)

The tall standing and superior strong for his age, Nick Havenga was able to put his size and strength on display at a recent PeeWee AAA tournament in Cornwall as he went 12 for 14 with 2 massive HR’s, 3 triples and not to mention a bucket full of doubles.

So far in 2014 these types of performances have been regular happenings for Havenga as he’s been dominating the PeeWee AAA league to the point where fielders should be concerned about fielding his hard hits.

2014 STATS:

  • 34 At Bats 10 Doubles 5 Triples 26 RBI
  • .743 On Base Percentage
  • .735 Batting Average

Nick Havenga participated in Private Lessons throughout the 2013/14 winter where he developed his hitting fundamentals through thousands of repetitions with a strong focused approach and controlled atmosphere.

The EBA Staff were amazed when Havenga entered the academy and were notified that he was only 12yrs old at the time! “With his strong forearms, and hands to go along with his size, Nick could be a player to watch down the road if he keeps developing year after year, and devotes some time into baseball” points out academy instructor Andrew MacNevin.
