MARSDEN RETURNS FOR HIS FOURTH SEASON WITH THE PANTHERS
The Kitchener Panthers are happy to announce the re-signing of Infielder, Keegan Marsden (Stratford, ON), for his fourth season in Kitchener.
The Panthers will look to Marsden for leadership and a veteran presence as he enters into his fifth IBL season, making him one of the most experienced IBL players on the roster. To date, Marsden has played in 140 IBL games, recording 132 hits, 26 doubles 15 homeruns, 97 RBI and a career .277 average.
The smooth swinging left handed bat will be looking to build on the successes of his 2021 season where he returned from shoulder surgery to set career highs in batting average (.338), on base percentage (.448), and OPS (.923) in 24 games played.
A resident of Stratford and an alumnus of the Ontario Nationals Baseball Club, Marsden spent the first two seasons of his collegiate career at NJCAA Kalamazoo Valley Community College (Kalamazoo, MI) where he was a two time All-Conference Academic Award recipient and an All-Conference honourable mention once. He then transferred to NCAA D2, Goldey Beacom College (Wilmington, DE), for his final two years of eligibility. In two seasons, Marsden recorded 88 hits, 73 runs scored, 11 homeruns, 48 RBI and a .416 OBP. He was a 2nd Team All-Conference selection in his 2018 Senior season, hitting .307 with 6 homeruns and 32 RBI.
When asked about Marsden, Panthers Field Manger, Don Menard, commented; “Keegan is a hard worker for the Panthers and a great teammate, on and off the field. He hit .338 with a .438 On Base Percentage in the regular season and he hit .667 in playoffs last year for us with many key hits along the way. With his shoulder healthy this year, I see him being versatile and contributing in many roles for us as we battle to bring home an IBL championship”.
