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 have added a Starr to its all-Canadian coaching staff.
Sammie Starr, currently an assistant coach with the University of British Columbia (UBC) Thunderbirds, joins the NorthPaws as an assistant coach for their inaugural season.
The former infielder from Toronto played four seasons for the Thunderbirds before being drafted in the 34th round by the Baltimore Orioles in 2007.
The Kamloops NorthPaws are shaping their inaugural roster with strong defense and play calling behind home plate.
Trey Newman, a catcher from Utah Valley University, is officially the first player signed in NorthPaws history.
