WELLAND – The Welland Jackfish, members of the Intercounty Baseball League (IBL) today announced the signing of infielder Steven Moretto for the 2023 season.

Moretto, an infielder coming off five seasons of NCAA Division-One baseball with the Sacramento State Hornets, has signed with the IBLs Jackfish this season. 

A native of Coquitlam, B.C., and the son of former B.C. Lions linebacker Rob Moretto, Steven Moretto was one of B.C.s highest-touted high school quarterbacks in 2016, putting up prolific numbers in both rushing and passing, before opting for baseball with Sacramento State. 

 

The six-foot, 215-pound right-handed hitter is a former member of the Canadian National Junior team. He served as a pitcher while representing Canada at the Little League World Series in 2012, an experience he shared with minor baseball teammate and current Jackfish infielder Matteo Porcellato. 

 

“We’re thrilled to be adding another outstanding young athlete and person to our roster,” Jackfish General Manager Jason McKay said of the 23-year-old, who is a five-time All-Academic in the Western Athletic Conference. “We know Steven can fit right in and help us right away.” 

 

In five seasons of Western Athletic Conference baseball at Sacramento State, Moretto hit 30 home runs with 150 RBIs in 849 at-bats. He had 85 extra-base hits and compiled a .325 on-base percentage and .418 slugging percentage. In 2021, he led the conference with 22 doubles and led the team with eight home runs. 

Moretto has also played for the Rochester Honkers of the Northwoods League and the Falmouth Commodores of the highly regarded Cape Cod Baseball League.

The Welland Jackfish are a member of Canada’s top baseball league, the Intercounty Baseball League. The 100-year old summer league is one of the oldest baseball leagues in the world, with the league established in 1919, drawing significantly more fans, in a friendly ballpark experience, than any league of its kind.

Before joining the Maple Leafs, Jeff spent the last four seasons as the General Manager of the Hamilton Cardinals leading the team to several playoff milestones. The former Brock University Head Coach is one of the winningest coaches in Canadian university baseball and a three-time Ontario coach of the year over his 20-year career at Brock.

Lounsbury led the Badgers to two CIBA National Championships (1998, 1999), four OUA Championships (2002, 2004, 2010, 2014), three Ontario West crowns, seven CIBA Championship appearances, six OUA regular season titles, and 11 consecutive 20-plus win seasons.

Lounsbury was named the OUA Coach of the Year three times (2005, 2012, 2014) and was inducted into the Niagara Falls Sports Hall of Fame in January 2016.

“I am honoured to be given the responsibility of assisting the Maple Leafs into a new era at Christie Pits” said Lounsbury. “I respected Jack and this franchise so much over my years in the IBL and am here to help support this club’s passionate fan base, supports, volunteers, and dedicated core of veteran players.”

“It is crucial to preserve the hard work and dedication that others before me have done to usher in a new era of Maple Leafs baseball at The Pits.”

The Toronto Maple Leafs are a member of Canada’s best league, the Intercounty Baseball League.
