Former Blackville High School student Aaron Dunn has been selected to play on the North American Collegiate Baseball Team as part of “The North Baseball” experience. Aaron is the 18 year old son of Harry and Dawn (Brophy) Dunn of Keenans.
The team will travel to Germany, Austria and Switzerland from May 11 to 23.
Aaron was also a member of the UNB Cougars Collegiate Baseball Team this past fall. During this season, Aaron earned the honours of Rookie of the Year, as well as Pitcher of the Year. He started his baseball career in Blackville Minor Baseball, where he was coached by his mother Dawn. He then went on to be part of the Chatham Ironmen and Miramichi Twins Baseball organizations. Aaron also volunteers by assisting in coaching in the Blackville Minor Baseball Program.
The costs per player for this once in a lifetime opportunity is far more than any university student could manage. Family and friends have been fundraising to help Aaron with financial support.
On Friday, March 23 there will be a Merchandise Bingo at the Father AA McKinnon Memorial Hall in Blackville at 7:00pm. There will be 17 games. $5 per book and $5 for special games. A canteen will also be open. A variety show will be held at a later date.
