Three Canadians participated in the 2010 Futures game on Sunday; Brett Lawrie, (Langley, B.C.) started the game at 2nd base and played great defence, while Trystan Magnuson (Vancouver, B.C.) and Philippe Valiquette (Montreal, QC) each pitched 2/3’s of an inning.
ANAHEIM — Hank Conger and Mike Trout hope to make Angel Stadium their home park shortly. They certainly felt at home Sunday.
The way they performed for the U.S. Team in its 9-1 Futures Game victory over the World Team, that jump from the Angels system to Angel Stadium didn’t feel that far off. After Conger’s three-run home run turned what had been a pitchers’ duel into a U.S. runaway, the roar of the crowd made it feel like home.
“Unbelievable feeling for me,” said Conger, who was awarded Most Valuable Player honors after the game. “I’ll never forget this ever in my life.”
