Team Ontario Alumni Report: Week 12
It's the time of year where some student-athletes are packing up and heading home, while others are playing some of the most exciting baseball games in their careers. That was the case this weekend for both Shane Nixon and Kyle Perrett as the pair played a big part in their teams success in postseason games over the past week.
Kyle Perrett was highlighted earlier in the week for his First-Team All-Conference honours, as well as his conference championship while Shane Nixon hit a go-ahead grand slam for Central Oklahoma.
The full list of top performers across the organization:
SHANE NIXON, SOPHOMORE, UNIVERSITY OF CENTRAL OKLAHOMA (NCAA)
25-for-90 (.278), 6 HR, 6 2B, 26 RBI, 17 R, 10 BB, 3 SB, HBP
Shane continued to swing the bat well this weekend as Central Oklahoma played a three-game postseason series against Missouri Southern State. Nixon's weekend was highlighted by what was likely one of his biggest hits in baseball career when he hit an 8th inning grand slam to put the Bronchos ahead 10-7 on Sunday in the third and deciding game. The Bronchos went on to win 11-7 and now head to the MIAA Final Four tournament next weekend. Nixon also added a double and two walks throughout the weekend.

Perrett then made an appearance on Monday in the Opening Round of the NAIA National Tournament, working three innings against Mount Vernon Nazarene University. He allowed just two hits, no walks and struck out two as the Racers dropped the opener 5-4.
Graeham Luttor, midway university (NAIA)
As Graeham Luttor's career came to a close at Midway University last weekend against Rio Grande, Luttor now prepares to head on a new adventure in his baseball career. This past week the power-hitting first baseman announced he has signed with the Ennepetal Raccoons of the German Bundesliga. Luttor has swung it extremely well during his time at Midway and was highlighted last year by the Canadian Baseball Network as one of the top college players in the country.
