Canadians drafted, camps highlight summer

Owen Diodati, a catcher with the Great Lake Canadians (GLC) program, was drafted by the Toronto Blue Jays in the 29th round of the 2019 First Year Player Draft in June. He’s committed to the University of Alabama next fall.

With summer finally upon us, there’s no better place to gear up, stay in shape, and continue to get your time in on the field than at Centrefield Sports.

Whether you and your team are searching for extra time on the diamond, gridiron, pitch, field or in the gym or batting cages, or you are looking for a venue where the weather is always guaranteed, London’s largest indoor baseball facility is the perfect place to suit all of your needs. Reduced rates have already begun, and they will run until Labour Day.

Along with all the options indoors all-year long, Centrefield Sports is also hosting three outdoor camps this summer. The facility’s summer camps offer an array of different sporting options – and plenty of fun and games – while keeping the focus centred around baseball. All of the camps take place at Byron Optimist Complex. The first runs from July 8 to 12, the second between July 15 and 19, and the third – a four-day camp – from August 12 to 15.

Centrefield Sports is also proud to be the home of the elite amateur Great Lake Canadians program, and would like to acknowledge and congratulate Owen Diodati and Noah Myers, who were selected in Major League Baseball’s draft at the beginning of June. Both players were chosen by their home-country Toronto Blue Jays, in the 29th and 30th rounds of the selection process, respectively.

Diodati, a catcher from Niagara Falls, is finishing up his final season with the GLC organization in the Canadian Premier Baseball League before heading to the University of Alabama. Myers, an outfielder from Wyoming and a GLC alumnus, has completed his tenure at Wabash Valley Community College and is committed to the University of South Carolina. The pair were two of just 25 Canadians chosen in this year’s draft.
