Kyle Ross pitches for Team Canada Juniors

The baseball season has begun for lefty pitcher Kyle Ross, as the Maple Ridge starter took the mound for Team Canada in Florida on Monday morning.

Ross pitched two innings, got two strikeouts and allowed three hits in St. Petersburg against the Baltimore Orioles’ prospects.

On Tuesday, the junior national team took on the Toronto Blue Jays, with a lineup that was to include major leaguers Brett Lawrie, Adam Lind and the popular Munenori Kawasaki

Former Blue Jays players Ernie Whitt and Rob Ducey have been working with the juniors. Whitt is the manager.

The junior national team is at spring training from March 9-17. Once his stint with the team is done, Ross will rejoin the Langley Blaze of the B.C. Premier Baseball League, where he established himself as the staff ace last year.
