Ramon joins college teammate J.C. Cardenas from Barry University on the SteepleCats this season.
The only Canadian on the club, Valdez transferred to Barry University from Parkland College. While a member of the Parkland Cobras baseball team, he hit 343 with a phenomenal 478 on-base percentage off the strength of 38 walks in 38 starts. He kept that up in the Ohio Valley Collegiate Baseball League, hitting 363 with 30 walks to up his OBP there to an incredible 560. He does more than walk with 7 doubles, 3 triples and 2 home runs for the Cobras and 8 doubles, 1 triple and 3 home runs with the Railroaders of the Ohio Valley League. This past season he continued to get on base for Barry University with a 470 OBP in 36 starts for the club to go with his 310 AVG.
A strong defensive catcher, Valdez’s ability to get on base and hit for extra bases will help the SteepleCats immeasurably this season.
