Former Seward and BJ Lefty Makes All Canadian Team

KSCB News - January 5, 2013 7:26 am

Seven short months after throwing his final pitch in a Seward County uniform, former Saint lefty Keegan Hucul has been given the greatest recognition of his collegiate career. Hucul was named one of fourteen Canadian baseball players and one of just two left handed pitchers to be named to the 2012 Canadian Baseball Network 1st Team All-Canadian Team. The All-Canadian team was made up from players at every level of United States collegiate baseball including junior college, NAIA, and NCAA institutions.

Of over 745 Canadians playing collegiate baseball in the United States last season, Hucul was chosen as the top left handed pitcher of them all. He finished his sophomore campaign with the Saints with a 9-2 record and 2.99 ERA in 81 1/3 innings pitched before transferring to the University of Texas-Arlington to continue his career. Only four junior college players were named to the first team, Hucul, along with a pair of Lamar CC hitters in Pier-Olivier Dostaler and Jackson Gooch, as well as Chandler-Gilbert outfielder Tyler Hollick.
