Canadian Junior National Team shortstop Adam Hall became the first Bermudian born player selected into Major League Baseball.
During the 2017 Major League Baseball First-Year Player Draft the Baltimore Orioles used their second round choice to select Hall who was drafted 60th overall.
Hall, 18, joined the Junior National Team program as a 15 year old in the fall of 2014 after leaving Bermuda, before representing Canada at the 2015 WBSC U-18 Baseball World Cup in Osaka, Japan.
In 2016, he was the lone Canadian to participate in both the Under Armour All-American Game at Wrigley Field in Chicago and the Perfect Game All American Game at Petco Park in San Diego. He was also the recipient of the Canadian Futures Award handed out by the Toronto chapter of the Baseball Writers’ Association of America last January at the annual Baseball Canada National Teams Awards Banquet and Fundraiser.
Hall was teammates with Junior National Team right-handed pitcher Landon Leach who became the first Canadian selected in the 2017 Major League Baseball First-Year Player Draft after the Minnesota Twins used the first pick in the second round, 37th overall.
On the recent Dominican Summer League tour Hall hit .318 in 13 games with three Doubles, a Triple and seven Stolen Bases, he is committed to Texas A&M University.
