Few athletes have their names all over the Baseball Alberta awards like Gavin Galenza. In 2015, he was named the 11U ‘AA’ Player of the Year, and followed that up with the 13U ‘AA’ honours in 2016 and the 13U ‘AAA’ in 2017. The Camrose product added another one to his mantle this November by picking up the 2022 18U ‘AAA’ Player of the Year Award, after torching Baseball Alberta Elite League pitching with a .505 batting average with the Red Deer Carstar Braves. He followed that up with a great performance with the silver medal-winning Team Alberta at the Canada Summer Games. Galenza, who moved to Red Deer to join Jason Chatwood at St. Joseph High School Academy, now has his sights set on the next step of his baseball journey with the Colby Community College Trojans, where he already has a semester under his belt. We caught up with the 5-foot-8, 190-pound catcher this week to talk about it all, including getting some baseball life advice from 2022 MLB Draft Pick and Alberta’s own Matt Coutney.
