“Sam is a great addition to the Cardinals. He is a smart pitcher, he is a strike thrower and he has a calm about him with an inner fire to succeed. He has so many intangibles as a pitcher that I am sure many of our younger pitchers will learn a lot from. He is one of Ontario’s top pitcher’s and we are so happy to have him here in Hamilton”- GM Jeff Lounsbury.
