Serverino Cronier also has speed in his arm with a fastball that continually reaches above the mid 80’s.

“The international game has continued to grow and here in Elmira we are lucky enough to be able to work with some of the best Canada has to offer. Year in and year out we get a chance to work with a wide variety of athletes and this makes our team diverse and exciting to watch.” Matt Burch said.
