EBA Alumni Get Their Training in Over the Holidays

Over the Christmas break EBA Alumni are always looking to continue their off-season training and stay in shape before heading back to their baseball programs in the new year. As the original development grounds for these players, EBA always welcomes our players back with open arms. Also they serve as a good role model for other players looking to make the jump to the next level.

This year EBA’s Alumni consisted of 2 college players who are Cole McLaren (Morell, PEI), and JP Stevenson (New Glasgow, PEI) along with 2 High School Academy players who are Brett Platts (Albany, PEI) and Ethan Francis, (Summerside, PEI).

COLE McLAREN is currently with JUCO Div 1 Colby Community College (Colby, Kansas) as a Freshman and is battling for the role of starting Catcher. A role which involves lots of hard work at the collegiate level and one that would be a nice accomplishment as a Freshman for McLaren who is a player who doesn’t shy away from hard work.

JP STEVENSON is currently with NCAA Div 1 Canisius College (Buffalo, New York) as a Sophmore and will look to improve his numbers over last year as a Starter. Stevenson finished up last season with a 7-4 record over 73 innings pitched (2nd most) and only allowing 18 walks (team low) over that time. An improvement over these numbers in 2016 would show well for Stevenson and add to his already decorated resume in his short career.

BRETT PLATTS is currently with Okotoks Dawgs Baseball Academy (Okotoks, Alb) as a Grade 11 student. Platts had an solid Fall season and was able to open the eyes of Dawgs Coaching Staff with his bat and speed in the field. Platts in his first year with the Dawgs program will look to obtain a starting role as a 3rd baseman or outfielder with the Dawgs as they are now preparing for their competitive Spring season.

ETHAN FRANCIS is currently with Okotoks Dawgs Baseball Academy (Okotoks, Alb) as a Grade 10 student. Francis will look to continue his work ethic to get bigger and stronger throughout the winter months in hopes to obtain a starting role with the Dawgs in the Spring Season. Currently working with Coach Duda and Coach Pope Francis will look to increase his velocity as a young pitcher but also learn the mental side of the game to better prepare for college.
