Cardinals Re-Sign Starting Pitcher Corben Peters
HAMILTON - The Hamilton Cardinals have announced the re-signing of pitcher Corben Peters for the 2023 season - his second with the club.
Peters, a graduate of Grambling State University (NCAA D1), was a rookie with the Cardinals during the 2022 season and made an immediate impact during both the regular season and the playoffs.
The right-hander displayed the ability to pitch effectively as a starter and out of the bullpen, while putting up impressive strikeout numbers. Peters appeared in seven games last season, starting one, logging 11.2 innings with a 1.54 ERA and 15 strikeouts. During the playoffs, Peters started two games and racked up 16 strikeouts in 14.1 innings spread across four total appearances.
A native of Ottawa, Ontario, the 23-year old Peters recently pitched with the Monterey Amberjacks of the Pecos Independent League. He’s also an alumni of the Ottawa Knights program, and previously attended Cloud County Community College, before transferring to Grambling State.
“Corben’s got one personality on and off the field, and that bleeds into his demeanor on the mound. I kinda love that about him,” said George Halim, Hamilton Cardinals General Manager. “We expect him to start, compete, and learn how to navigate his way through games.”
“I welcome the day where I know we have a shot to win every time Corben is on the mound.”
