An outstanding performance by a Pointe-Claire athlete at the U-18 Baseball World Cup

The mayor of the City of Pointe-Claire, Morris Trudeau, is pleased to highlight the remarkable performance of Archer Brookman, a young athlete from Pointe-Claire who competed at the U-18 Baseball World Cup in Thunder Bay, Ontario in early September. The World Cup brings together the best baseball players in the world under the age of 18.

“It is an honour that reflects on us all when the City is represented with so much talent and passion. This is the result of a lot of hard work and perseverance,” stated Mayor Trudeau.

With two home runs, a triple, and a double, Archer led Team Canada in home runs (2), runs scored (9), and RBIs (11), and won the tournament award (all teams) for the most RBIs at the World Cup. A team effort took the Canadian squad to the bronze medal game.

Archer’s performance caught the attention of the many pro and amateur scouts in attendance. The Pointe-Claire athlete has since left for school and is attending Seminole State College in Oklahoma.

“Residents are encouraged to follow the promising career of this successful young athlete and role model as he pursues his dreams,” said the mayor in conclusion.
