The Intercounty Baseball League on Friday announced that Claudio Custodio of the Guelph Royals has been named IBL Most Valuable Player and the recipient of the John Bell Memorial Trophy.

The John Bell Memorial Trophy is an annual award given to the player judged to be the most valuable to his team. The winner is selected by the IBL Board of Governors at the end of the regular season. John Bell was a Listowel native who was largely responsible for Stratford’s return to their Intercounty Baseball league in 1964.

Robert Mullen of London finished second, followed by Welland’s Justin Gideon.

Custodio recorded a 2.17 ERA with 196 strikeouts and 25 walks. Claudio’s 196 punchouts for the season set a new IBL record, surpassing Ron Stead’s 57-year mark of 156 set in 1965 when he was nearing the end of a nine-year run with the Brantford Red Sox.

BARRIE – He won the rookie of the year in 2021, and now he’s looking to continue that success in 2023. Hayden Jaco will join the Barrie Baycats for the upcoming 2023 season after signing with the club in mid-November.

Jaco, 25, who was the primary catcher for the Majors in the first of their back-to-back championship seasons, hit .374 across 33 games in the regular season and postseason, with five home runs and 23 runs batted in. He also walked 14 times and hit two triples.

“He’s a hugely talented player at the plate at a crucial position,” said Baycats TV analyst Patrick Melbourne. “He showed what he can do with pitching staffs in 2021, and he’s got good speed behind the plate, which is rare to find in a catcher.”
