Biographical Information[edit]

Ben Abram has pitched for Team Canada.

Abram had a 5.79 ERA in the 2017 U-18 Baseball World Cup, striking out 11 in 9 1/3 IP and starting in their upset win over Japan. He led the team in Ks, two ahead of Eric Cerantola. [1] The San Diego Padres took him in the 37th round of the 2018 amateur draft but he did not sign. Going on to college, he was 6-4 with a 4.24 ERA at Oklahoma, making the Big 12 Conference All-Freshman team. [2] He had a 4.37 ERA for the Hyannis Mets of the Cape Cod League.

The big right-hander was one of three collegians picked for Canada's squad at the 2019 Pan American Games alongside Cerantola and Edouard Julien. At 6' 7", he was not the team's tallest hurler as Dylan Rheault was 6' 9" while Phillippe Aumont was also 6' 7". He pitched one game for the Silver Medalists, facing Gold Medal winner Puerto Rico in the round-robin phase. He relieved Will McAffer in the 7th with a 4-1 deficit and went 1-2-3 against Luis Mateo, Ozzie Martínez (striking out the former major leaguer) and Jay González. In the 8th, he ran into trouble. Jeffrey Domínguez doubled. Abram retired Brahiam Maldonado but yielded a sacrifice fly to Kevin Luciano. He walked Edwin Gómez and Jasvir Rakkar relieved; he would let in the inherited run. Abram finished the event with Canada's 2nd-highest ERA; only Rakkar was higher. [3]
