Balkwill Signs With The London Majors
Balkwill finished his senior season with the Siena College Saints in the NCAA. In 57 games this season with Siena, Balkwill hit .267 with 8 home runs and 48 RBIs.
Consistently a MAAC All-Academic team member, and a 41st round selection by the Detroit Tigers (Balkwill is again MLB draft eligible this year), Balkwill joins the 7-4 London Majors this week.
He will compete for playing time against current catcher Derrik Strzalkowski who has played all 11 games for the Majors this season, and is currently hitting .429.
London plays the Toronto Maple Leafs Friday June 7, and the Hamilton Cardinals Saturday June 8 in London.
Other notable Chatham baseball players to suit up for the London Majors in the past include Fergie Jenkins and Alan Cattrysse.
