  1. Check out Manny Arop from Edmonton! This kid is a stud!

  2. There are a lot of good players here, even some talk of a few of these guys entering the NBA draft. Doesn’t it kind of have the same feel as Canadian Ball Players? For how many Canadian ball players there are in the MLB, how do they win so many MVP awards.

    Check out the Canadians in the MLB show including the interview with Andrew Tinnish

  3. That could be Canada’s claim to fame in the American dominated sports. We produce quality, not quantity.

  4. Okay, I like Manny because he’s from Edmonton but the real Canadian story from the NCAA is Tristan Thompson. This guy is a projected first round pick in the NBA draft this summer after his freshman season! Fortunately for Texas, he’s sticking around college ball for one more season. This means that Texas will have 4 Canadians on their roster next season! I think I have a new favourite team.
