Sam Dexter will not be back
THREE-RIVERS — Hard blow for the Eagles of Trois-Rivières. Unless an unlikely reversal of the situation, their shortstop star, Sam Dexter, treads not the ground of the park of the Exhibition this summer.
Dexter has notified the organisation that he was looking for a new challenge for the upcoming season. Like others before him, he estimated that it would have a better chance of return in the baseball affiliate operating in another circuit that the League Can-Am.
The Eagles will work to redeem Dexter in the coming weeks or the coming months. According to the director general of the Eagles, René Martin, the option would be a transfer in the american Association of professional baseball independent.
Dexter, who will be 25 years old in a few days, made a big splash in the Can-Am last year, being crowned player of the year in defensive. The stick, no one has finished the season with a better batting average than him (,287). He had also known good times during the playoff series in the face of the Miners of Sussex (six hits for an average of ,316).
But it is because of its effectiveness as inter, which will have the biggest impact in the minds of the supporters. A number of them, regulars at the stadium for decades, do not hesitate to say that it was one of the defensive players among the most spectacular to be played at the stadium he.
He has committed only nine errors during the season, he played on the worst field in the circuit Wolff. In comparison, Taylor Brennan, posted in the third cushion for the majority of the calendar, has committed 20 errors.
Speaking of Brennan, it seems that the news is better in his case. The batting of 32 circuits, the outstanding player in the league, has sent positive signals to the Eagles and the manager of T. J. Stanton. At least that is what we hear from several weeks in this folder. Information confirmed by René Martin on Tuesday morning.
