Personal

Canton has been primarily a catcher, but he also has significant playing time as a DH, 3rd base and rightfielder.

As a catcher, he averages 1.9 seconds on his pop time, and he is a good pitch-caller and receiver.  At the plate, he has good power and can drive the ball to all fields.  But he also is a patient hitter with the ability to make pitchers work.  During his college career, he had a good walk rate.

Defensively, he has good speed and a strong arm, which enables him to be an effective outfielder.  He has posted a time of 6.5 seconds in the 60-yard dash.

Canton describes himself as “very outgoing and extroverted. I love talking baseball to help myself and others improve their games. I am the type that lives and breathes extra work. I am always in the gym or the cage in any spare time.  I stay in mid-season shape throughout the year.”

Canton Terry is an absolute grinder. I haven't met many guys who put in the time that he does. He is always trying to get better, whether that is in the weight room, in the cage, or on the field. He is a great leader, who has a great knowledge of the game. Canton Terry will make any team better, not only because of his baseball skill, but because of his personality and leadership.
