Cardinals Re-Sign Pitcher Alex Lanigan

The Hamilton Cardinals are excited to announce the return of standout pitcher Alex Lanigan for the 2024 season. 

Hailing from Langley, BC, Lanigan had a memorable IBL rookie season in 2023, quickly establishing himself as a cornerstone of the Cardinals' bullpen. Over 38 innings, he demonstrated exceptional consistency, leading the team with a team leading 2.60 ERA.

Before his tenure with the Cardinals, Lanigan celebrated a significant achievement, clinching the 2023 Canadian College World Series title with the University of Calgary, where he will continue to play in 2024.

“Lanny was one of our best arms and we expect him to be an anchor in our bullpen,” said George Halim, Hamilton Cardinals General Manager. “He isn’t afraid of pitching to anyone. We love the energy he brings to the clubhouse – Lanny’s got a very infectious personality.”

Lanigan's journey through the ranks of baseball includes valuable experiences with the Edmonton Prospects in the WCBL and the Whalley Jr Chiefs in the BCJPBL
