March 13, 2024

VICTORIA, B.C. — The reigning CCAA player of the week, San Marcos infielder Garrett Teunissen (pictured above), leads the latest signees for the Victoria HarbourCats for the 2024 season.


Teunissen, a junior from Corona, CA, stole three bases, had two doubles, a triple and a home run among a 9-15 weekend against San Bernardino, leading his team to three wins in four games. He’s leading the league in stolen bases and sac bunts, a year after a .352 season with seven bombs and 16 stolen bases at Mt. San Jacinto.

The HarbourCats are excited with the mix of elite bats and top arms, including local product Brett Paterson of the Victoria Golden Tide, announced today.

  • IF Garrett Teunissen, Cal State-San Marcos, 5-9/185, Corona, CA
  • C Cam Macleod, Cloud County, 5-11/195, Vancouver
  • RHP Luke Hayhow, Hawaii, 6-2/235, Sydney, Australia
  • C Griffen Sotomayor, Washington State, 6-1/215, Turlock, CA 
  • RHP Shea Lake, Hawaii Pacific, 6-3/180, Temecula, CA
  • RHP Ryne Palmer, Cal Baptist, 6-4/200, Peoria, AZ
  • RHP Brett Paterson, Victoria Golden Tide, 6-2/220, Victoria

Hayhow is a highly regarded Hawaii recruit from Sydney, Australia, a monster at 6-2/235 with immense potential and a fastball up to 93.

Sotomayor is a sophomore with the Cougars and was rated the third best catcher in California in his senior year, after being team captain for two seasons at Turlock High School.

Macleod is a product of the North Shore Twins who has three home runs and 18 driven in while batting .333 in 19 games for Cloud County so far this spring.

Palmer is a big righthander who touches 90 and is used out of the pen by Cal Baptist. Lake is 3-0 with a 4.32 ERA so far this season, mostly used as a starter.

Paterson is a local baseball product who has grown into his own with the CCBC Victoria Golden Tide, and was a workhorse for the Weyburn Beavers of the WCBL last summer. Known for his hard work and positive leadership with the Golden Tide, uses a funky delivery to be effective as a starter.
