A member of the Ontario Terriers, an expansion team for the 2021 season, and one of the younger players at the CPBL All-Star Showcase in September, Cameron Chee-Aloy made his presence in the league known immediately.
Chee-Aloy was one of seven attendees at the All-Star Showcase who were born in 2004, but his performance didn’t indicate it. He went 6/11, hit two home runs, patrolled centerfield well, and was named the Most Valuable Player.
The right-handed hitting outfielder noted, “winning MVP means a lot to me, and I’m really fortunate to win this award. Especially now with this award, I feel like I proved to myself and everyone in this new league that I can compete in the highest level of baseball in the province.”

With many scouts in attendance in Dorchester for the All-Star Showcase, it could be a nerve-racking experience, however, for Chee-Aloy, he wasn’t fazed by the stage and capitalized on the opportunity.
“I felt great performing in front of the scouts because it was just an opportunity to show them I can play well and potentially take the step to playing professional baseball. Personally I wasn’t nervous. I was just really excited to show them what I can do on the diamond,” said Chee-Aloy.
“I really enjoyed the CPBL All-Star Showcase. It was a great atmosphere and it was with the best competition in the province making every game really competitive and fun. Personally, with my performance, I had no complaints. I felt like I stood out and showed all my tools within the weekend.”
Still uncommitted and in communication with schools, Chee-Aloy isn’t in a rush to commit and has his eyes set on making a couple of prestigious teams in the near future. “I hope to continue my development next year and hope to make the Ontario Youth Team and have a shot for playing on the Junior National Team. I’m looking forward to getting back practicing and competing with my teammates in this season,” he said.

A toolsy outfielder with speed and impressive arm strength, Chee-Aloy noted that he made significant strides in his ability to track the ball this past year. And he looks to continue to improve from a physical standpoint during the offseason.
“The biggest way I plan on improving myself is just getting stronger with lifting.”
He has a well-rounded toolset, with speed, arm strength and the ability to play centerfield, while offensively, he’s now shown he can hit against the best pitching the province has to offer.
After a strong performance at the CPBL All-Star Showcase, he’s put himself on the map as one of the better players in the 2022 class and is undoubtedly one of the more intriguing follows in this province from here on out.
