Brantford Red Sox Sign Will Langford
BRANTFORD - The Brantford Red Sox, members of the Intercounty Baseball League, are proud to announce the signing of Will Langford for the upcoming 2021 season.
Will is a 26-year-old right-handed pitcher from Coburg, ON. He was a standout pitcher in the OUA for the Queen's University Gaels. In September 2017 he threw a no-hitter against the Waterloo Warriors, the only pitcher in Queen's baseball history to achieve this feat. He recently committed to the University of Toronto and will be playing for the Varsity Blues while pursuing his Master's Degree.
Will also pitched in the Western Canadian Baseball League for the Fort McMurray Giants in 2018 and 2019. He posted a WCBL career 3.68 ERA over 22 games and 78.1 IP, with 62 strikeouts. In 2019 he was named to the WCBL’s Western Division All-Star team.
Brantford Field Manager Matt McGovern says "Will gives us another top of the rotation type arm, and everything that I’ve heard about him is that he is an absolute GAMER! He's the type of pitcher who goes out there, gives you 110%, and you know exactly what you are going to get every time he toes the rubber. He’s going to attack hitters and challenge them from the first pitch to the last. He pounds the zone consistently and mixes speeds very well".
McGovern adds "We are going to have a great chance to win a ball game every time Will's spot comes up in the rotation. We're very fortunate to have signed Will and I’m certain he will be a mainstay and one of the top arms in the IBL for years to come!"
