WAYNE – A recent Wayne State College baseball player signed a professional contract with the Ottawa Champions of the Canadian American Association of Professional Baseball in late August.
Graduate senior pitcher Bobby St. Pierre signed his contract on August 26 and had two impressive outings to end the regular season last week.
St. Pierre worked three innings of relief in his first outing August 27 vs. Sussex County, allowing one run on three hits with three walks. He followed that with another appearance on August 31 at Trois-Rivieres and pitched three and a third innings of scoreless relief, allowing just one hit with three strikeouts and one walk to earn the save.
In the two games worked to end the season, St. Pierre pitched six and a third innings and had one save with a 1.42 ERA. He gave up just four hits and one run with four walks and three strikeouts.
During his lone year with the ‘Cats, he appeared in 14 games with 11 starts and had a 5-6 record with one save. St. Pierre added a 6.92 ERA, pitched 65 innings, was second on the team in strikeouts with 51 and posted a team-high three complete games.
