Parksville Royals pitcher Anson McGorman has earned a spot on Canada’s junior national baseball team, currently playing a seven-game ‘Friendship Series’ against the United States in Sarasota, Fla.
McGorman was in the lineup Sept. 3, at Ed Smith Stadium. Canada gave up five runs in the first inning and was not able to recover as the U.S. won 14-2. McGorman came in relief and tossed a scoreless seventh inning before allowing three runs in the eighth.
The U.S has already clinched the series after winning 15-1 in Game 4 on Sept. 6.
McGorman will get another chance to shine when he returns to the mound on Wednesday, Sept. 8.
This coming fall season, the Parksville ace will be donning the jersey of Sacramento State University, where he has been recruited to pitch for the Hornets in the NCAA Div. 1 Western Athletic Conference.
