Quebec City native Benjamin Gagné (No. 9, right), shown in action last year against Cape Breton, has been named the Remparts’ captain for the coming season. Gagné succeeds Matthew Boucher, whose playing days as a junior are over.

Martin Figueroa hit a two-out, three-run home run at the bottom of the ninth inning, and the Sussex County Miners beat the Québec Capitales 6-5 to earn their first ever Can-Am Baseball League pennant on Sept. 15.
