Brandon Green – An infielder who played at Okotoks and who is transferring from State Fair Community College in Sedalia, Missouri;
Tyler Burton – A great all around player from the Victoria Eagles program who will create havoc with his speed. Helped lead the Eagles to a silver medal at 2021 BCPBL Championship; and
Brendan Morrison – A first baseman and outfielder from Abbotsford and a key cog in the Abbotsford Cardinals program in the PBL. Will provide corner defence and power at the plate.
