Dawgs Coach part of Jr. National Trip to Florida

Thursday October 23, 2014

Jeff Duda’s impressive baseball career continues to flourish. Duda was a player for the Okotoks Dawgs in the WMBL and was apart of three championships while playing. In the off-season Duda stayed on with the Dawgs and has been a pitching coach with the Academy since his playing days with the WMBL. After pitching for three summers for the Capitales in Quebec City in the Can-Am league, this past spring Duda decided that he would hang up the spikes and take up coaching full time. Now that his playing career is over, his coaching career is taking off. Earlier this fall Duda was asked to be a guest coach on the Jr. National team that went down to Florida. Duda worked primarily with the pitchers on the Jr. National trip. He had this to say about his first trip with the Jr. National team “It was an honor to represent our country, as well as the Dawgs, and wear Canada across my chest. The opportunity to work with the best young talent in our country was a great experience. Working with MJ (Mike Johnson), Adam Stern, Shawn Bowman, Chris Robinson and Greg Hamilton was special. To have the chance to coach with three former MLB players (Johnson, Stern, Robinson), AAA affiliate (Bowman) and the most influential person in Canadian Baseball, Greg Hamilton, was a little intimidating. The staff welcomed me with open arms, and it was one of the greatest experiences in my career, certainly the best as a coach thus far. I felt as though I really helped contribute to the staff, and learned a lot from each of them. I am grateful for the opportunity Greg Hamilton has given me, and I hope I can continue to represent our country as a part of the staff. Whether it is full- time or part-time, I would like to keep contributing to the development of the best young talent this country has to offer. “
