The Canadian Junior National Team dropped their spring opener 10-1 to a team of Detroit Tigers prospects at the Walter Fuller Complex at St. Petersburg, Fla., on Friday.

But there were still plenty of standout performances by national team members. Jaden Griffin (Lower Sackville, N.S.) was dominant on the mound, striking out four in two scoreless innings, while Noah Naylor (Mississauga, Ont.) went 2-for-3 with a double. Cesar Valero (Calgary, Alta.) also doubled for the Canadian squad.

Born in Ottawa, ON and growing up with military parents, my childhood was filled with new cities all of the time, stretching from one side of Canada to the other. 

I took to sports at a young age, primarily Tae Kwon Do. I loved the competitiveness of it and by age 13 won my first North American and Canadian Championship title.

I moved out West after I was done my schooling, where I obtained a Diploma as an Automotive Technician.  I loved the amazing landscapes Alberta offered me, where I could pursue my passion of photography.  It wasn't until 2013, when I realized what I really wanted to be taking pictures of, after I travelled to Phoenix to watch Team Canada in the WBC. I was hooked on sports photography, and baseball, right then and there.  I currently live in Calgary, AB and spend my summers shooting the WMBL Okotoks Dawgs.
