The Quebec Capitales and the Trois-Rivières Aigles have made a major transaction involving centerpieces of the lineup of the two Quebec teams. Outfielder David Glaude will join the Capitales while TJ White will head to Trois-Rivières.
This move is a return to the beginning for David Glaude in Quebec City. Prior to playing for the Aigles, he played his first professional (and alone) game with the Capitales in the home opener at Canac Stadium in 2017. Glaude had previously played with the Quebec Diamonds during his junior years, winning among other things the title of most valuable player of the LBJEQ in 2014. With the Aigles, Glaude has gradually proven himself over the last three summers.
During these three campaigns, he has successively increased all his major offensive statistics in addition to perfecting his game at second base. The 24-year-old has nevertheless asserted himself as one of the best players in the former Can-Am League circuit with 13 home runs, 49 RBIs and 16 stolen goals. In 90 regular-season games, he has a .290 batting average and a .381 batting average. By the end of last season, the Aigles had made him their MVP of the 2019 season.
The outfielder sees his wish to evolve in his native region to be fulfilled. In this major exchange featuring two of the best players in independent baseball, the Capitales cede infielder TJ White after two seasons in Quebec City.
Having quickly established himself in the Old Capital, the 27-year-old American has become a crowd favorite and has demonstrated the extent of his talent on the pitches of the former Can-Am League. Despite an injury that limited him in 2019, TJ White still earned the Capitales’ MVP and most popular player last season. In two seasons with Quebec City, White represented the Capitales’ colors in 136 games, hitting 21 home runs, producing 90 runs and maintaining a .281 batting average.
The Quebec City Capitales organization is very pleased to welcome David Glaude to its ranks and wishes TJ White the best of success by thanking him for his time in its ranks.
