In The System: Blue Jays prospect Andrew Case

Andrew Case was nearly overlooked.

The Saint John, N.B., native went undrafted, and unnoticed by colleges after graduating from secondary school in Alberta. An invitation to the inaugural Tournament 12 – a showcase for Canada’s young baseball prospects – changed everything.

Case threw a no-hitter in the tournament, and was signed by the Toronto Blue Jays six days later.

“Those are the most special moments as a scout,” says Blue Jays scout Jamie Lehman, who offered Case his first professional contract. “When you’re calling with a contract, you’re making his dream come true in that moment.”

Get to know more about Case’s story and hear from the 25-year-old himself in the latest edition of In The System.
