Derian Potskin (2019)


When Derian Potskin has a bat in his hands, opposition outfielders usually head for the fence.

Whether it’s in baseball or fastball, Potskin packs a wallop at the plate. As a first-year member of the PG Surg-Med Knights all-star baseball team in 2018, he added his power to a lineup that won double-A provincial and Western Canadian championships. In the Western Canadian final against the Portage la Prairie Pirates, Potskin pounded a two-run home run in what became a 10-0 victory in five innings. Altogether, he hit six homers in about six weeks of tournament play with the Knights.

Also in 2018, Potskin was named to baseball’s Under-16 edition of Team B.C. The year before that, in fastball, he represented his province in the North American Indigenous Games in Toronto.
