The Nomadic International Baseball team has added two more players from the Oshawa 16U Legionaires.
Paul Xenophontos and Peter Houston join teammates Tristan DesLauriers and Ryan Howard on the Nomadic roster for a showcase event in Denver, Co. from July 1 to 8.
Xenophontos, a right handed pitcher and third baseman, is in his first season with Oshawa.
The Newmarket native is among the team leaders in several offensive categories including a .355 average (fifth), 11 hits (third) and RBIs with eight (second).
On the mound, he is 2-0 and hasn’t allowed a run in nine innings of work.
Houston, a left handed pitcher and outfielder, is also in his first season with the Legionaires.
The Port Hope native has been fighting through injuries to start the season and has scored three runs with three stolen bases in seven games.
The lefty is 1-0 with a 1.75 ERA in one start this season.
“To have four players named to the Nomadic Baseball team and have them interested in a few others speaks for the quality of development in our players. They have worked really hard and it’s great to see them starting to get noticed,” says 16U Legionaires head coach Daryl Macklem.
The Nomadic team is an international team made up of players from Canada, the U.S., Kuwait, Australia, and Czech Republic.
