Going to bat for Douglas College
Infielder Taylor Lawrence of Burnaby will play baseball for Douglas College in the fall.
The Burnaby Mountain secondary graduate has been playing primarily third base in the B.C. Premier Baseball League for the Coquitlam Reds, with whom he has a .302 batting average. Lawrence is following in the footsteps of his older brother Brent who went to Douglas before moving on to play NCAA baseball at Northern State University in South Dakota.
Brent hit .308 in 44 games for NSU this season. Although he didn’t have a home run he drove in 23 runs and stole five bases on seven attempts.
