10 Year Muskoka Hornets veteran Andrew Haynes committed to play baseball for the Shippensburg University Raiders in Pennsylvania, a Division 2 school in the well-regarded PSAC Conference. Haynes will join the Raiders in the fall of 2019.
Andrew Haynes, along with former teammate and current Laurentian University baseball player Ethan Murdy, joined the program in 2009 and are the only two players who have been with the Hornets since inception. With this signing, there are now four Hornets playing post-secondary baseball across North America. Management expects another three or four commitment announcements in the next few months.
Congratulations Andrew - you deserve it.
The Muskoka Hornets will field 5 travel teams in 2019.
