The Rouen Huskies of the French Elite League recently signed two members of the International Baseball Community website for 2016.
Catcher Andrew Medeiros, a Westfield State University grad, has built a reputation as a catcher who can crush the ball and steal bases. He first took his game overseas to Australia for the 2014-2015 season as a late signing and led a 1-3 team to a 24-3 record by hitting .462 with 17 doubles, 3 triples, 9 home runs and 21 stolen bases through 23 games. He then signed to play in Belgium for the summer of 2015 and led the Deurne Spartans to a championship behind a .466 batting average with 14 doubles, 2 triples and 10 homeruns while swiping 38 bases!
Rouen also signed infielder Mike Taylor who just finished a monstrous season for the Pittsburg Diamond of the Pacific Association where he played alongside MLB great Jose Canseco and played against 10-year MLB veteran Eric Byrnes. Mike proved to be one of the league’s top hitters in the three major hitting categories: batting average (.309), homeruns (24), and RBI’s (74).
