Veilleux Returns For 2022 Season
The Hamilton Cardinals are pleased to announce the return of 2nd year catcher Jeremie Veilleux (Oakville On). Veilleux returns after a very good rookie IBL season and will help solidify the catching position. Veilleux is the starting catcher at McMaster and helped them reach the OUA championship game this past fall. In this rookie campaign, Veilleux played in 23 games and hit .286 (20-70) with 1 double and 11 RBI’s. He also had 17 walks compared to only 15 strikeouts.
“JV did a great job last summer, he blocks and throws well. He also did a great job of getting on base for the team. He started the season 0-9, so to get up to where he ended shows very well for his potential, and what he is capable of with another year of experience. The learning curve for a rookie IBL catcher is steep and as a team, we will have 3 very young catchers who have all got a taste of IBL experience. We are counting on JV to show improvement and help manage our very strong team pitching.” GM Jeff Lounsbury
