Wiens Bound for USC Salkehatchie
The Ontario Nationals organization is pleased to announce the commitment of Cameron Wiens to USC Salkehatchie (NJCAA D1). Wiens, a talented right-handed pitcher, is from Waterloo, Ontario.
Wiens joined the Nationals in 2020, marking the beginning of his journey with the organization. His decision to become a part of the Nationals family came through a serendipitous connection. He was approached by someone he went to school with who put him in touch with Nationals staff. The opportunity to be a part of a more competitive team and league and the possibility of playing collegiate baseball in the future were significant factors in his choice.
Baseball is more to Wiens than just a game; it is a love and a passion. He thrives on the competition and deeply values the camaraderie it brings. He enjoys the challenge of baseball, likes making new friends every year, and the opportunity to grow relationships beyond the baseball diamond. When it comes to pitching, Wiens experiences a unique satisfaction. He relishes in the control of the game's pace, knowing that all eyes are on him, culminating in the exhilarating feeling of hearing the strike 3 call.
Described by those who know him as the 'strong, silent type', Wiens brings a dedicated work ethic and a focused mindset to the game. His presence on the field speaks volumes, and his actions resonate with teammates, coaches, friends, and family.
Choosing USC Salkehatchie was a decision influenced by several factors. The climate and the welcoming nature of the coaching staff played a significant role. He also expressed interest in pursuing a course of study in either Criminal Justice or Business, aligning his academic goals with his athletic pursuits.
As Wiens embarks on this new chapter, the Nationals organization extends their heartfelt congratulations and best wishes. Wiens' dedication to the sport and his team exemplifies the values the Nationals hold dear. We look forward to witnessing the impact he will undoubtedly make both on and off the field at USC Salkehatchie.
