BC Catcher Travels to Nicaragua

February 27, 2014

Ladner native brings Canadian baseball to Nicaragua

Okanagan College Coyotes’ catcher Tyler Pentland (Ladner) spent his UBCO reading break in San Cayetano, Nicaragua as part of a Habitat for Humanity team building a brick house for a local family. As it turned out, the father of the young family, Henry, was an avid baseball player. He also got a chance to show Tyler what he has as a pitcher.

The entire Pentland family (John, Glenda, CJ and Tyler) was part of the Habitat team that went to Nicaragua. Joining them was Glenda’s brother (Tyler and CJ’s Uncle) Bryce Paton, a level five umpire from Calgary, Alberta (in the photo).

The Pentland family also had a chance to distribute a team set of uniforms donated by Ladner Minor Baseball to a team of 12 year old players. Tyler and his brother CJ got a chance to play an inning of a game with the boys, with John and Bryce umpiring.

Congratulations Pentland family.
