UFV baseball coach Wes Darvill re-signs with Winnipeg Goldeyes

Coming off an all-star season, the infielder returns to the independent minor league team in 2020.

UFV and Fraser Valley Baseball Academy coach Wes Darvill has re-signed with the Winnipeg Goldeyes for the 2020 baseball season.

The signing was announced Tuesday by the minor league club.

“I’m thrilled to have Wes back in the golf for 2020,” said Goldeyes general manager Rick Forney. “Wes has been one of the top 10 all-round players in the American Association (of Independent Professional Baseball) the last few years. I’m hopeful he can repeat his 2019 success and also take on more of a leadership role within the clubhouse.”

The 28 year old infielder is coming off an all-star season in Winnipeg. Darvill batted .317 with seven homeruns, 21 doubles and 26 stolen bases 88 games.

He was only caught stealing twice.

Darvill was a vacuum in the field for the defensively stingy Goldeyes. He had a .990 fielding percentage at shortstop and a .968 fielding percentage at second base, committing only six errors all season.

Darvill also saw international action the Canadian senior men’s team, starring for the nationals at the Pan Am Games in Peru and the Premier 12 Olympic qualifier tournament in South Korea.
