A new face will be traveling north of the border to toe the rubber at Spitz Stadium this summer.
The Lethbridge Bulls are pleased to announce the signing of left-handed pitcher Javier De Alejandro from Our Lady Of The Lake University, an NAIA school in San Antonio, Texas.
De Alejandro says he is looking forward to the opportunity to play summer ball in Western Canada.
“I’m pretty excited for the opportunity to get out of the states. I love the chance to experience a different kind of [base]ball up there that’s different from south Texas.”
Last season, the OLLU Saints were champions of the Red River Athletic Conference. De Alejandro was part of that team and says he is looking forward to being a part of a team that is defending the title both in the spring and summer.
“It means a lot. When I found out the Bulls were the defending champs, I was kind of shocked. I mean what are the odds the team I want to play for won it all last year? There’s going to be a really big target on our back. That’s kind of like our situation this year [at OLLU] we got conference champs last year and we are defending something this year. We’re in the same boat.”
