2021 Angels Teams Announced!
In 2020, St. Anthony Baseball Academy (the “Academy”) was ready to field a U11 and U12 team in the Fergie Jenkins Showcase League (“FJSL”), but then the COVID-19 pandemic hit, and we placed our efforts on development and practices. The Academy garnered the attention of programs such as the Ottawa Knights, Ottawa Nepean Canadians, and Ottawa Patriots! Elite baseball programs where U14 and beyond players can be found. With that attention focused on our Academy, our Angels were in the spotlight! Four of our players found homes with the Ottawa Knights and two of our players found homes with the Ottawa Patriots. Our Academy provided these baseball players the opportunity to succeed and grow, and with that at the forefront of our Academy's vision, we restocked our Academy. We were rewarded!
Our 2020 Fall Ball Season was even more successful than the previous years. We fielded three teams: U10, U12, and U13. We, as an Academy, offered more baseball than could have been imagined during a pandemic. Our U10 team of Little Angels became the future of our Academy in an instant. Our U12 team stayed the course, despite obstacles, leaders led, and they remained optimistic of the talent that is on its way to 2021. Our U13 team retooled, talent found was undoubtable, unstoppable, inevitable, and the accomplishments of the U13 team echoed across the baseball community. Now, all eyes are set on the Academy, on the Angels.
We moved into 2021 tryouts and baseball players from across Ottawa came looking for spots on the Academy teams. The Academy experienced the most intensely, competitive tryouts in its history, where independent evaluators faced difficult decisions. From these exceptional tryouts, the Academy is pleased to announce its 2021 teams: U10, U12 and U13! A U10 team ready to compete in the FJSL! A U12 team still building, with a few roster spots remaining, and making its way back to the FJSL! For the first time in Academy history, a U13 division! The 2021 season looks to be an incredible season and we are excited to write the next chapter in the life of the Academy!
