Former Berwick Panther Seth Henry has taken his baseball dream north of the border this summer as a member of the Quebec Capitales of the CanAm League, which is an independent league.
Henry played college baseball at Tulane and was drafted by the Tampa Bay Rays.
Henry played in the Gulf Coast League as a rookie playing 21 games and finishing with a .347 on-base percentage.
When Henry’s contract was not renewed he set his sights on getting back to a major league roster, which led him to Que-bec.
Henry has thrived so far with the Capitales batting in the lead off position with a .252 batting average over 107 at bats.
He has four home runs, 14 RBIs, 11 walks and 19 runs on 27 hits so far this season.
Last week Henry was 3-for-3 with a home run, two runs and three RBIs in the Capitales win over Pittsfield.
Henry hit home runs against Pittsfield in three straight games during the series last week.
The CanAm league is a proven route to the major league’s with two Quebec players contracts already being bought out this season and a total of 10 players from last season are back in the majors.
Quebec is currently in first place with a 23-6 record. New Jersey is second with a 20-11 record and Pittsfield and Newark are tied for third at 16-14.
