Breaking News: Red Sox Score a Home Run Signing MaxD’s Powerhouse Trio!



Three promising young Bahamian baseball players marked their entry into the professional realm by signing individual contracts with the Boston Red Sox organization on Monday. All three athletes, Tavano Baker, Edwin Darville, and Trent Wilson, aged 17, have trained at the Maximum Development (MaxD) Sports Academy.

Baker, an outfielder and one of the Red Sox’s top international prospects in this signing period, along with Darville, primarily a shortstop, and Wilson, a pitcher, finalized their contracts in a ceremony at the Office of the Prime Minister (OPM). The trio, who started their baseball journeys at the Freedom Farm Baseball League (FFBL) in Yamacraw at the age of seven, are poised to contribute their skills to the Red Sox organization.

Prime Minister Philip Brave Davis took a moment to extend his congratulations to the young athletes, acknowledging the positive impact of sports on inspiring good feelings and noting the significance of positive values instilled through sports teams like Freedom Farm. He encouraged the young men to remain focused and determined in their development.

All three players are set to join the Red Sox rookie level development program in the Dominican Republic, undergo an instructional camp, and eventually be rostered. The Dominican Summer League Red Sox, consisting of two teams – DSL Red Sox Red and DSL Red Sox Blue, will be their home, playing at the El Toro Complex in El Toro, Dominican Republic.

Expressing their gratitude and excitement for the opportunity, Baker acknowledged the support from his family and the coaching staff, Darville expressed his eagerness to excel, and Wilson emphasized the importance of hard work and humility in the pursuit of success.

Dominique Collie, a Freedom Farm prospect and now in his second year as an international scout with the Red Sox, played a vital role in securing professional contracts for the three Bahamian players. Collie, who envisions becoming a big league manager in the future, shared the special moment of being able to offer this opportunity to fellow Bahamians.

Greg Burrows Jr., President and Head Coach of MaxD Sports Academy, expressed satisfaction in seeing the athletes achieve their dreams and emphasized the academy’s commitment to nurturing young baseball talent in the Bahamas, further establishing the country as a significant breeding ground for baseball players in the Caribbean region.
