McEachern has been a member of the program for six years, and will patrol centre field for the 18U Pirates this coming summer.

The Fieldhouse Pirates are proud to announce that 1B Eric Van Rassel (Mississauga, ON) has officially signed his National Letter of Intent to play for Niagara County CC in Sanborn, New York. Van Rassel, a member of the Pirates for the past three years, is expected to hit in the middle of the Pirates’ 18U lineup, while also playing first base.

Competing in Region 3, Van Rassel joins one of the top JUCO D3 programs in the country. The Thunderwolves finished the 2018 season with a 40-7 record, a year removed from going 47-10 to go along with a JUCO World Series appearance.

Van Rassel is expected to compete for a starting job at the hot corner when camp opens up in August.

The Fieldhouse Pirates are proud to announce that OF Kenny Di Clemente (Oakville, ON) has officially signed his National Letter of Intent to play for Crowder College (NJCAA D1) in Neosho, Missouri.

Di Clemente, a member of the Pirates for the past five years, will bat at the top of the Pirates’ 18U lineup, while also playing regularly in right field, with some time at third base.

Competing in Region 16, Crowder is nothing if not a perennial JUCO powerhouse. The Roughriders finished the 2018 season with a blistering 46-15 record, scoring 591 runs over 61 games. Crowder came into the year as the pre-season No. 2, and peaked at No. 3 in the national rankings. Di Clemente will be forced to heavily compete, as he tries to lock down a starting job in the Roughrider outfield.

On behalf of the Fieldhouse Pirates, we’d like to extend our congratulations to Kenny and his family.
