Tufts to become a Reiver

Alex Tufts; from Nova Scotia, Canada; has committed to attend school and play baseball for Iowa Western Community College next year. Tufts currently attends school at Vauxhall Academy in Alberta, Canada. In 2005 and 2006 he competed for the Novia Scotia Youth Select team in the Canada Cup. Alex also attended the Mizuno Junior Elite Camp in 2005. Tuft’s currently throws in the mid-upper 80’s and has improved greatly since enrolling at Vauxhall Academy and concentrating on his development in baseball. In the Fall season he had a record of 2-0; throwing 30 innings accumulating 35 strikeouts with only 16 walks.

Coach Rardin had this to say, “Alex will come to Iowa Western Community College as a real sleeper. Novia Scotia is one of the smallest provinces in Canada; and it’s hard for players from that area to get good looks from American colleges. He’s a low ¾ guy with a lot of late life on his fastball and the ability to locate his off-speed pitches. He’s pretty good right now; but his best days are certainly ahead of him as he continues to get more repetitions and plays more baseball. I’m excited about the things he will be able to do for us and himself in the future”.

The Iowa Western Community College baseball staff would like to welcome Alex and all of our recruits to the program for next year.
