The Lethbridge Bulls are pleased to announce the addition of another returning player for the 2022 Western Canadian Baseball League season.
Max Benton, a right-handed pitcher from Clyde River, Prince Edward Island will return for his second season with the Bulls. Last season, Benton appeared in 9 games, making 4 starts for the Bulls. Benton says it means a lot to him to get to defend the title.
“It means everything to me. Especially the coaching staff that wanted to bring me back. It put me over the moon when I got the text from [Coach] Chance [Wheatley] asking me if I wanted to come back.”
Benton says the fanbase and baseball community of Lethbridge makes him excited for the season ahead.
“The community is incredible, the coaches and the fans coming out every night. The whole community makes it so much more enjoyable.
Benton currently plays collegiately for the Prairie Baseball Academy in Lethbridge. The PBA competes in the Canadian College Baseball Conference (CCBC).
