Wednesday was National Signing Day across North America. 2021 IF/P Brodie Mackay officially signed his National Letter of Intent to play baseball and attend Western Kentucky University.

UPDATE: 26 Mar. 2021

Brodie joined the Royals at the age of 15 as a 5’7” underage player at the 16U level. Over the years, he flourished as a standout infielder, hitter and team leader.

Today, at 6’1” and 190 lbs., he is one of the top infield talents in Ontario. An elite hitter with excellent hands and very strong arm.

In the fall of 2020, Brodie was selected to the prestigious CPBL All-Star Showcase. He performed very well in the three-day event which featured most of the top players in Ontario. Brodie collected multiple walks, multiple hits, including an RBI double, and a 1.000 OPS.

In the summer of 2020 Brodie was added to the Canadian Baseball Network’s 2021 MLB Draft Canadian Top Prospects List (compiled by National Baseball Hall of Fame journalist Bob Elliott).

In January 2021, Brodie was named to the Baseball Factory Pre-Season All-American Team, and in March he was a selection of the Rawlings / Perfect Game Pre-Season All-Region Team for Canada.

Brodie hopes to continue the history of successful Canadians coming out of the WKU Hilltopper program. In 2019, the New York Yankees drafted OF Jake Sanford from Dartmouth, NS in the 3rd round (105th overall).

Brodie's parents — Sue and Dave — are extremely proud of their son's commitment to WKU, and attribute Brodie's growth as a baseball player and a young man to the Royals program and coaches.
