To be fair to Mr. Guillen, there are at least nine other 109-year-olds playing winter ball in Arizona this season. I say “at least”, because a few teams don’t have their rosters up yet (although it would appear that my big ol’ dump of names is pretty accurate, so far).
- Greg Dumouchel, C (or OF? or both?), allegedly resides in Edmonton
- Michael Stier, 1B, allegedly resides in Vancouver
- Corey Parsons, RHP, allegedly resides in Surrey
- Mason Scott, RHP, allegedly resides in Victoria
Let’s focus on the alleged Albertan. Dumouchel was in the AWL in 2008 in addition to competing this season. Domouchel sounds like a scrapper with versatile fielding skillz skills. Like a lot of current Albertans, he’s from Ontario. Speaking from experience, I think Ontarians are good for Alberta.
Let’s assume that the Silver Sox and Team Canada have a few Canucks on them… so the four players above might not represent all the Canadian talent in the AWL. Remember those names, though. They may be future Seals, Cracker-Cats, or maybe even Vipers.
