Ty Showan, the son of Métis Nation of Ontario (MNO) citizen Todd Showan of Thessalon, is enjoying great success playing baseball. The MNO North Channel Métis Council was proud to support Ty as part of the Team Ontario at the North American Indigenous Games (NAIG) earlier this year.

Ty, who is only 14, plays middle infield, short stop, second and first base. He played in the Soo Blacksox Baseball program for several seasons and represented the City of Sault Ste. Marie at the Ontario Provincial Baseball Association championships. In 2015, Ty proudly played on Team Canada in the under 13 years of age category in the annual Mexican Baseball Fiesta in Tuscon, Arizona.

This year Ty was named to Team Ontario for NAIG in the under 17 years of age category.   To support Ty’s participation in the Games the MNO North Channel Council provided him with $500.00. The Council was very proud to support Ty being part of this special event.

NAIG took place in Toronto from July 16-23 and Team Ontario’s baseball team won all but two of its games and finished with the silver medal. Ty was an excellent representative of the Métis Nation and everyone at the MNO North Channel Métis Council is very proud of him.
