Toronto signs Fox-Pappas
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.
