Majors Bring Back Power Bat
The London Majors are pleased to announce the signing of 1st baseman Josh Williams. Josh returns to the Majors after playing 17 games in the regular season with the team in 2019.
Williams was one of the Majors best offensive players in the first round of the playoffs vs Welland when he hit for an average of .350, 5 RBIs and had a big home run in game 4. The Toronto native was a regular at first base. Josh’s size, 6’5” gives his teammates a big target plus he also has a good glove at 1st base.
“Playing for the Majors, being in the best stadium, and having the best fans in the IBL will be something I’m always thankful for. Then you top that off by having a manager like Roop who’d do anything for his team…makes it an easy decision to come back next summer and work towards an IBL title. Look forward to seeing you all!”
Majors general manager, co-owner and manager Roop Chanderdat was asked what it means to bring back a player with home run potential “It’s great to have Josh back with the Majors. He gives us another power type hitter in the line-up. I’m looking forward to having Josh for a full season on our team. He had a great finish to his first season with us two years ago and this should help him this season now that he knows the league.”
The London Majors are a member of Canada’s top baseball league, the Intercounty Baseball League. The 100-year old summer league is one of the oldest baseball leagues in the world, with the league established in 1919, drawing significantly more fans, in a friendly ballpark experience, than any league of its kind.
