VALLEJO, Calif. — The Vallejo Admirals announced today that infielder Brandon Fischer has been promoted to the Quebec Capitales of the Canadian American Professional Baseball League. The Admirals did not immediately announce a replacement for Fischer’s roster spot.
“Being in Vallejo taught me a lot about the game on and off the field,” Fischer said. “The level of talent and knowledge on that team cannot be matched. It was an honor to play there and to play for (manager) P.J. (Phillips). His coaching style is exactly what a player looks for when playing pro ball. He knows so much about the game and has really helped me mature as a baseball player.”
Fischer was 3-of-14 in four games for the Admirals this year. In 2018, he hit .241 in 72 games, mostly playing at second base, for which he won the Pacific Association’s Gilded Glove award for his defense. He hit nine home runs, drove in 34 and stole 19 bases in 25 attempts.
Fischer also played shortstop and outfield for the Admirals in 2018 and even pitched an inning, recording two strikeouts.
Fischer is 24 and is originally from East Northport, N.Y. He attended St. Thomas Aquinas College in Sparkhill, N.Y. He previously played for Ottawa of the Canadian American league in 2017.
