Blaze pair playing for Canada
A pair of Langley Blaze teammates have gotten the call for Canada.
Third baseman Mitchell Robinson and catcher Luke Horanski are among the 30 players named to the Canadian junior national team's fall instructional roster.
The team, made up of players between the ages of 15 and 17, left for Florida on Oct. 3 and will be at the Disney Wide World of Sports Complex until Oct. 13.
Horanski hit .370 this past season with 30 RBIs while Robinson batted .369 with 35 RBIs. Both players are 17 and have one more season with the Blaze Premier program.
The camp includes daily practices and a nine-game exhibition schedule against MLB-affiliated Fall Instructional League clubs for the Atlanta Braves, Detroit Tigers, Houston Astros, Washington Nationals and Toronto Blue Jays. The Canadian side will also face Stetson University, Lake Sumter Junior College and France's senior national team.
