The Saskatchewan Premier Baseball League is one of the gem circuits that has graced the Gordie Howe Sports Complex grounds.

Currently, the Saskatoon Cubs occupy first place in the regular season standings with a 19-4 record in under-18 AAA play in the SPBL, which is the league’s top level. One of the Cubs standout players is Parker Frey, who is having a stellar season as a pitcher and hitter.

Frey is having a second straight strong campaign on the mound as a right-handed pitcher. He throws a great slider and change-up and can locate his fastball well.

At the plate, Frey has made a big improvement from a season ago that has seen his batting average go from .262 to .356.

Frey has played the game at an organized level from a young age and comes from a baseball family as his father, Scott, serves as the Cubs head coach, while older brother, Jordan, is a Cubs assistant coach. In the fall, Parker Frey has committed to play for the Taft College Cougars baseball team in Taft, California.
