Since the 2013 draft in June we have had five members of the current Canadian Junior National Team as guests on the Canadian Baseball Network Podcast.
Malik Collymore, Tyler O'Neill, Sean Ratcliffe and Travis Seabrooke were all guests on previous episodes and Chris Thibideau will be a guest on an episode being released this upcoming week. We asked each player about their Junior National Team experiences when we interviewed them about the draft.
We also spoke to Greg Hamilton, head coach of the Junior National Team about the origins of the team and the recent events they had participated in for a complete episode of the podcast focused on the JNT. In this episode we also asked Hamilton about the 18U World Championship the team is currently underway.
