Tommy Green is looking forward to the 2021 season to finally get back into a ball game and to do so in his home province for the first time since 2018.
Green, the newest member of the Kamloops NorthPaws infield, did not see any game action in 2020.
The redshirt sophomore shortstop at Cuesta College, a junior college in California, fractured his hand before the season opener. Once it had healed, the COVID-19 pandemic had already put an end to the season.
The Kamloops NorthPaws are thrilled to announce Cole Armstrong as the first head coach in franchise history.
The 37-year-old from Surrey, B.C. becomes the only current Canadian serving as head coach in the West Coast League.
“It’s a dream come true to return to British Columbia to do what I love," says Armstrong. “I’d like to thank the city of Kamloops along with the new owners of the NorthPaws for including me in this opportunity to set a new standard on and off the field in the West Coast League."
Canada’s Tournament Capital just added another sports team to its roster, the Kamloops NorthPaws. The announcement on September 9 was surrounded by much socially distanced fanfare at Norbrock Stadium, the home of the NorthPaws when they begin play. The special event featured ballpark hot dogs, refreshments, great music, prizing for attendees, and a lively atmosphere, something the ownership group will continue when the team takes to the field for its inaugural season in the summer of ‘21.
