VICTORIA, B.C. — Davidson, Finn, MacNeil and Finkelstein — sounds like a $1,000-per-hour law firm with offices on Broughton and Wharf.
Instead, it’s the name of four quality arms returning to lay down the law on opposing hitters next summer at Wilson’s Group Stadium at Royal Athletic Park.
Todd Haney and Scott Anderson, the Head Coach and Pitching Coach respectively of the Victoria HarbourCats, are pleased to re-sign these four pitchers, three of them left-handers — all from the province of BC.
LHP Dustin Davidson, Brookhaven, 6-5/220, Haida Gwaii, BC
LHP Jack Finn, Illinois State, 6-1/200, Victoria, BC
RHP Logan MacNeil, Campbellsville University, 6-1/180, White Rock, BC
LHP Jake Finkelstein, Montana State-Billings, 6-0/190, Richmond, BC
“We are thrilled to bring back four great competitors to our pitching staff,” said Head Coach Haney. “They know the championship expectations of playing in Victoria and will embrace the opportunity!”
MacNeil, the team’s co-pitcher of the year in 2023 and a first-team WCL all-star, was 6-0 with a 1.08 ERA in the regular season, making 14 appearances combined with playoffs figured in. Finkelstein was tremendous out of the bullpen with a 2.41 ERA in 22.1 innings in the regular season and then threw eight scoreless and innings, including five dominant innings in a home playoff win over Bellingham in the playoffs.
Davidson and Finn joined the HarbourCats late in the season. Finn, from the Victoria Eagles and now at Illinois State, had two starts and three appearances for the HarbourCats — his best outing not making the record books as rain ended a July game early in Kamloops. He also started and posted a win in Edmonton. Davidson, a great story coming from Haida Gwaii, made five appearances and the 6-5 former Douglas College hurler didn’t allow a run over 6.1 innings combined in the regular season and playoffs.
“It’s fun to see the recruiting work of Todd and Scott and see the roster taking shape,” said HarbourCats GM Christian Stewart. “We have merchandise selling on-line, season ticket renewals and new purchases are strong and on-going and we anticipate the 2024 schedule will be out within a few weeks as well. This is a great time of year for us.”
The HarbourCats 2024 schedule in anticipated to be released in late October or early November 2023. Stay tuned to our website and social media channels for news on that once it becomes available.
