Shane Dawson – Pitching Coach
We are proud to announce that Shane Dawson will join the FX coaching staff beginning in September of 2016.
Shane grew up in Fort McMurray before moving to Drayton Valley for high school where he played locally for the Spruce Grove White Sox.
After Midget AAA, Shane moved on to play college baseball at the Prairie Baseball Academy in Lethbridge where he was drafted in 2012 by the Toronto Blue Jays.
Since being drafted, Shane has risen through the Blue Jays farm system up to the AA level where he is currently pitching for the New Hampshire Fisher Cats.
Highlights of Shane’s career include winning a Gold Medal with Canada at the 2015 Pan Am Games in Toronto and pitching against the Boston Red Sox in Montreal where he faced the likes of David Ortiz, Hanley Ramirez, and Pablo Sandoval.
Shane will work full time with the FX & STM academy pitchers and catchers alongside coach Rob Boik until mid-February 2017 before he reports to Dunedin for Spring Training.
