Rheal Cormier to pitch for Moncton Mets


Recommended Posts

This is pretty funny stuff. Does NB Senior League Baseball really serve as "tune-up" competition for the Canadian Olympic team?

The left-handed pitcher, who developed his accuracy by throwing rocks and snowballs at his mailbox in his native St-Andre, and went on to a 16-year career in the major leagues, will join the Moncton Mets for nearly five weeks later this season in the New Brunswick Senior Baseball League.

Cormier, who turned 41 last month, will use his time with the Mets to prepare to play for Canada at the Olympic Summer Games in Beijing, China in August.

His return to the Moncton lineup comes 21 years after his last start for the team when he pitched the Mets to a bronze medal at the Canadian senior baseball championship in Red Deer, Alta. in 1987.

He may still have some stuff left coming out of the pen, although I think Japan will t-off on Cormier. Canada should have a good team provided key players are released for the Olympics from their MLB club. Too bad about Stubby Clapp.
