HAMILTON – The Hamilton Cardinals have announced today the signing of pitcher Duncan McLaughlin for the upcoming 2023 season.

McLaughlin, a Dartmouth, Nova Scotia native, joins the Cardinals after coming off his first season with Panola College where he pitched 40 innings and totaled 31 strikeouts while only walking 15 batters.

“I’ll never forget watching Dunc handle Ontario the way he did in the 2019 Canada Cup Gold Medal Game,” said George Halim, Hamilton Cardinals General Manager. “It was the first time I’d seen a Maritimer pitch with arrogance, let alone against a squad with millions of dollars on their roster. To say we’re excited is an understatement.”

McLaughlin previously attended Southeastern Community College in 2021 where he started 9 games for the team while striking out 49 batters. Duncan also played in the U-17 Canada Cup in 2019 and won the Nova Scotia Major Baseball Player of the Year Award.
