TORONTO – The Toronto Maple Leafs Baseball Club (@iblmapleleafs) announced today the signing of first baseman Robin Fox-Pappas for 2023.

Fox-Pappas who grew up and still lives in Toronto joins the Leafs after spending the 2022 season playing for the Hamilton Cardinals.

In 2022, Fox-Pappas battled injuries for most of the regular season, before being healthy for a strong playoff run. In the 2022 playoffs, Fox-Pappas hit .318 (7-22) with a double and three RBI’s. Fox-Pappas played at George Brown College along with playing in Australia and Europe before playing last season in the IBL.

Upon joining the Leafs for 2023 Fox-Pappas states “It’s been a dream to join the boys in blue at Christie Pits since I was a kid. I am thrilled to have the opportunity to compete with such a talented team and excited to get to work and hopefully bring a championship home.”

“Robin is a true team player; he’s hard nosed and competitive. Last year was such a struggle for him after getting hurt so early in the season, but he showed up every day, did his best to be a great teammate, then really stepped up when he got healthy and got the opportunity late in the season. I am so thrilled to have him here with me in Toronto” said Maple Leafs General Manager, Jeff Lounsbury.

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

LONDON – The London Majors are pleased to announce the signing of local outfielder Will Pollard.

Pollard joins the Majors after playing for the Western Mustangs during the fall season where he was a teammate of Majors outfielder Austin Wilkie. This past year for the Mustangs Pollard hit an average of .286 with 10 rbi with 12 runs in 13 games. Pollard is also an alumni of the St. Thomas Tomcats junior team where he had a .400 average and 9 RBIs in 7 games during the 2022 season.

Pollard also played with the London Badgers where he was a teammate of Majors AP players, Jaryd Lund and Connor Ambrogio, where they teamed up in 2018 and won gold in Fort McMurray.

Growing up in London, it’s a dream come true for Pollard who shared memories of attending games “As a kid, I remember having a blast going to majors games. Whether that be running around the bases, chasing after foul balls, getting autographs, you name it. I specifically remember this one moment when Cleveland Brownlee hit a grand slam on Mother’s Day to help give the majors the win. The atmosphere in the park was absolutely incredible.”

Another new Major, Roop was asked about adding to the local talent pool on the Majors roster and how important it is to the success of the team “Will is another good local player that we have added to our roster.” He then went on to talk about what he brings to the roster “Will is a line-drive hitter with some pop and is a good defensive outfielder”

The London Majors are a member of Canada’s top baseball league, the Intercounty Baseball League. In 2021 the London Majors won the IBL Jack & Lynn Dominico Trophy. The 100-year-old summer league is one of the oldest baseball leagues in the world. The league was established in 1919, drawing significantly more fans, in a friendly ballpark experience, than any league of its kind.
