Blaze’s O’Neill earns AFL invite

Former Langley baseball player leads California League in home runs

Former Langley Blaze player Tyler O’Neill has been selected to play in the Arizona Fall League.

The 20-year-old outfielder from Maple Ridge will play for the Peoria Javelins in the six-team league, which begins Oct. 13 and runs until Nov. 21.

O’Neill leads the California League with 30 home runs. He is also hitting .264 with an .557 slugging percentage and 81 RBIs this season for the Bakersfield Blaze, a Class A affiliate of the Seattle Mariners.

He also helped Canada win gold in July at the Pan Am Games in Toronto.

O’Neill was a third round pick of the Seattle Mariners in the 2013 MLB amateur draft.
