End of Chapter for Trifluvien

Raphaël Gladu was the local hero, and definitely a crowd favorite. He is a role model for all those young players looking forward to professional baseball because he has shown that anything is possible with perseverance. But like all good things come to an end, it’s time to focus on beyond his career.

So Trelovian played his last game for Aigle de Trois-Rivieres last Sunday. He accepted the position he had been craving for several years.

“It’s a thoughtful decision and I’ve been looking forward to working there for several years. Well this year I was able to go through the selection process and they called me to hire me so it was time. If I declined, I wouldn’t be able to keep playing (professional baseball) and come back to tell them I’m ready after my career. ‘, attested by #6 of the Eagles.

“Now, sure, it’s a bit hard to quit (professional baseball), but at the same time, I couldn’t get to the point where I got to, and MLB was the ultimate goal in the beginning.”

With his new job, it’s impossible for him to commit to a professional baseball season that he brings to the States every two weeks. However, he’s not ruling out baseball entirely, but the ball will be in Cascades de Shawinigan’s court next year.

“I had some great times at Trois-Rivieres and I am glad I was able to play professional baseball in my hometown, in front of my family and friends. I will also never forget the time I had in junior baseball when we won 32 in a row, as well as the National Championship that year. Now “I wouldn’t shut the door in baseball. I played two years with Cascades de Shawinigan, so probably. I have many friends there, I’ve known since high school, and that’s definitely an easier schedule,” he says.
