The New Hampshire Wild have promoted third baseman Joshua Wong to the Quebec Capitales of the CanAm Professional Baseball League today.
The move comes as no surprise as Joshua Wong put up impressive numbers in this years Empire League Season. Wong, who formerly played for the WBC Phillipines team, finished the season hitting over .350 with 9 HRs and 43 RBIs.
Quebec is looking to improve on their offense by adding Wong as they have a month left in their season and are making a playoff push.
“He’s been my offensive weapon all year long and he is well deserving of this. He is going to get a taste of high level professional baseball which is why he chose to come to the Empire League seeking this opportunity. I wish Wongie the best of luck and great success as he continues his professional career.” – Manager Jerry Gonzalez
Wong will report to Quebec after the CanAm League All star break in a few days when the team heads back home to Quebec.
