UFV baseball coach returns to pro ranks

Jordan Lennerton, who also coaches at ‘The Yard’ in Chilliwack, played 1 game for the Quebec Capitales

Jordan Lennerton returned to pro ball for one day earlier this week, suiting up for the Québec Capitales in a Can Am Baseball League match against the Ottawa Champions.

On Jordan Lennerton night at Stade Canac in Quebec City, the 32 year old was honoured before the game and played his familiar first base.

He drew a walk in his lone plate appearance as the Capitales won 6-5.

Lennerton played 199 games for the Capitales between 2016 and 2017, dominating Can Am pitching.

In 2016 the Surrey native and graduate of Langley’s Brookswood secondary school hit .301 with a .390 on-base percentage, nine homeruns, 22 doubles and 62 runs batted in. Lennerton went next-level in 2017, hitting 328 with a .442 OBP, 14 homeruns, 21 doubles and 82 RBIs.

Lennerton is now a coach with the University of the Fraser Valley baseball team and at The Yard training facility in Chilliwack.
