ELMIRA, N.Y. (18 SPORTS) - One Elmira Pioneer might have the secret weapon to get the team back to their winning ways. 

Canadian third baseman, William Perrin, brings a new international flavor to the team and is already enjoying his time in Elmira. Perrin hopes that he can provide a much needed boost, some pure maple syrup from Canada for the players to eat.
