Shapiro Signs with Hamilton

HAMILTON - The Hamilton Cardinals are pleased to announce the signing of Caden Shapiro. Caden is a dual threat as a left-handed pitcher and plays OF/1B. Shapiro spent the last 2 summers playing for the Toronto Mets elite program and participated in the Toronto Blue Jays hosted T-12 tournament. Shapiro has committed to Princeton for the fall of 2021.

Caden has the tools to compete in the IBL even as an 18-year-old. This is a great opportunity for him to learn and grow as a player at the highest level against veteran competition. I look forward to helping him mature and grow," states Hamilton Cardinal GM Jeff Lounsbury.

“I am very excited to be a part of the Cardinals organization this summer. Grateful for the opportunity to play in the IBL and I look forward to competing” said Shapiro

Stay tuned to the Hamilton Cardinals and IBL website and social media for all the latest news on the return to play. 

The Hamilton Cardinals are a member of Canada’s top baseball league, the Intercounty Baseball League.
