Brantford Red Sox Re-Sign Nick Burdett
The Brantford Red Sox, members of the Intercounty Baseball League, are happy to announce that Nick Burdett will be returning for his 8th season with the team.
Over his 230+ game IBL career, Burdett has been a consistent team leader in hits. Nick won an IBL championship with the Red Sox in 2013, was an IBL all-star in 2015, and was named team MVP in 2018.
Burdett's veteran leadership has been a valuable asset both on and off the field - in 2019 both he and Matt McGovern stepped up and assumed Field Manager duties after the team made a coaching change midseason. McGovern says "Nick will be just as important to my new role [as Field Manager] as I am, he will be involved in all decisions we make as a team".
On behalf of the Brantford Red Sox organization and its fans, welcome back Nick!
The Brantford Red Sox were founded in 1911 and have won 15 Intercounty Baseball League titles. For all offseason news follow the Red Sox on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram. Subscribe to the Brantford Red Sox YouTube channel for live streaming of games this upcoming season.
