Meet Our Hosts

Justin Anderson

Justin fell in love with baseball watching Roy Halladay and Carlos Delgado as a young kid in Saskatchewan. Justin figured it out at age 12 that he wasn’t a very good ballplayer but loved the game so much that he became an umpire. Justin continues to umpire men’s baseball in Saskatoon and provincial championships. His goal is to work a Canada Cup and an international event as an umpire.

Patrick Marsh

Patrick has always been a sports fanatic but baseball holds a special place in his heart. After playing baseball as a child he continued his passion as a lifelong Blue Jays fan from the championships in 1992 & 1993 to the fabled bat flip of 2015 and on to the present day. His passion led to a short stint blogging before the creation of Bat Flips and Maple Dips in 2018.
