The Oshawa Dodgers are pleased to announce the signings of RHP Gord Robertson and OF Darren Sawyers. Robertson returns to the Dodgers after a limited run with the team in 2004. He has since garnered the Top Pitcher Award for the Durham College Lords in 2005 and was named team MVP in both 2005 and 2006.
Sawyers is a graduate of the Oshawa Legion Minor Baseball system and was a key member of the 2005 Junior Elimination Champion Oshawa Legionaires. “I am really excited about our team this season and the addition of Robertson and Sawyers will only strengthen an already solid foundation,” says manager Mike Prosper. “We have assembled a roster of talented individuals who all have one goal in mind. With a good mix of veterans and rookies and so much local talent our team chemistry will be unmatched. Many of our players have played together in the past and having experienced success with the Oshawa Junior Legionaires, know how to win. Our re-signings and new acquisitions should bring us deeper in the playoffs.”
