The Official Site of the Hub City Brewers, Moncton New Brunswick Canada
The Hub City Pita Pit Brewers are proud to announce that they will welcome veteran pitcher and infielder Juan Ortiz to the fold.
Ortiz played baseball in the Dominican Republic for Ingenio Santa Fe for about 15 years, last suiting up for them in 2005. Ortiz went 4-0 in four starts for Santa Fe in 2005, with 18 strikeouts in 23 innings pitched. He was team captain for a year, and served as pitching coach as well as pitching for two years. He was invited and attended training camps for the Atlanta Braves and the Hiroshima Toyo Carp in Japan.
The native of San Pedro de Marcoris, DR, immigrated to the Moncton area last May. Ortiz, 41, is very excited to pitch for the first time in his new home!
