Abbotsford’s Smith invited to CCL prospect game

Another accolade for local pitching product

Abbotsford’s Cade Smith is the lone Canadian baseball talent invited to the California Collegiate League Prospect Game, which occurs in the state on July 18.

The game draws 62 of the best prospects representing the eight teams in the CCL. The game will be broadcast on Fox Sports West.

Smith, a 2017 MEI grad, had a solid first year on the mound at the University of Hawaii. He put together a record of 1-2 and struck out 37 while walking just 11 in 13 appearances for the Rainbow Warriors. His most impressive performance was allowing just one run and four hits in 6.1 innings during a win against the University of Illinois back in March. He returns to Hawaii in the fall.

Smith was drafted by the Minnesota Twins in round 16 of the 2017 MLB draft, and has represented British Columbia on the national stage and Canada on the international stage. He claimed gold with Team BC at the 2015 Western Canada Summer Games, and also suited up for the Canadian junior national baseball team in 2016.

He also achieved a spot on the Abbotsford Sports Hall of Fame’s Wall of Fame in 2017. Prior to his national team and college accolades, Smith starred on the Abbotsford Cardinals.

The game occurs at 7 p.m. and takes place in Compton, Calif.
