The Vancouver product won the BC Premier Baseball League MVP in 2019, leading his North Shore Twins to the provincial championship with a 7-2 record, two saves, five complete games, three shutouts and a perfect game to accompany his 0.24 ERA and 88 strikeouts.

Maier, who represented Canada at the Under-18 Baseball World Cup in South Korea, was invited to the Kamloops Blazers’ rookie camp in 2016, but declined to pursue a baseball career.

Kamloops has signed 14 players and expects to carry between 25 and 30 players. The WCL is a 15-team circuit, with clubs in B.C., Alberta, Washington state and Oregon.
