Kamloops NorthPaws add significant speed to their outfield

'Paws post speed to outfield

The Kamloops NorthPaws are bringing in an outfielder from Utah's Brigham Young University to help round out their inaugural West Coast League roster.

Hunter Swapp, a sophomore at BYU from Herber City, Utah, was limited to seven at-bats in his freshman year due to the pandemic.

The ‘Paws are looking to Swapp to bring some much needed speed to the outfield. He posted a 6.30-second 60-yard dash, the same as Los Angeles Angels superstar Mike Trout and more than half a second better than the MLB average 6.90 seconds.

“I’m a competitor. I pride myself on having competitive at bats. I can run, so I like to implement that into my game,” Swapp said in a press release. “I feel like I can get to anything in the outfield and leg out some extra bases and extra base hits.”

“I can hit for a little bit of power. I think I have some variety in my game.”

The BYU Cougars dropped the first two games in their opening series against Texas State University.
