OKOTOKS, Alta. _ Anthony Balderas was so dominant in 2016 he was a Western Major Baseball League’s first team all-star.

And he was also voted the Dawgs pitcher of the year.

Don’t look know but Balderas is bullish on Okotoks once again ...

Balderas pitched eight scoreles inning fanning nine in a 6-0 Dawgs win over the Lethbridge Bulls in front of a sold-out crowd at Seaman Stadium. 

Balderas picked up the win to bump his record to 5-1.
