Newbridge Academy Varsity Baseball – Ayden MacKenzie
Ayden MacKenzie started playing baseball when he was 6 years old and hasn’t looked back sense. Ayden’s a great athlete having played hockey and volleyball along with baseball. Being from Antigonish, Ayden has spent the majority of his time playing with the Antigonish Baseball Association until last year when he played for the Pictou County MacGregor’s. Ayden was also a member of our Nova Scotia 15U Selects team in 2016.
Ayden spends most of his time behind the plate. Coach Wamback said “Ayden’s a human back stop! He does a great job softening his body to prevent the ball from getting away from him, while keeping the ball in front. This is crucial for a catcher as he gives the pitchers confidence they can throw their off-speed stuff”
Ayden’s excited to be at Newbridge as he feels this experience is going to set him up for success for his goals of playing college baseball south of the border and becoming a chiropractor.
