Newton is a Toronto native in his sophomore season and has thrown 53.3 innings this spring. He’s 2-2 with a 3.02 ERA, striking out 31 in 10 appearances.

Biro is a junior from Deep Bay, BC and played for the Parksville Royals of the BCPBL. The third baseman is hitting .331 with 47 hits and 22 RBIs in 142 at bats.

These latest players follow in the footsteps of a number of other Thunderbirds to play for the Falcons – Brad Ashman (2005), Bob Foerster and John Syrnyk (2008), Blake Curruthers (2011), Keaton Briscoe (2011), David Otterman (2011) and Andrew Firth (2011-2012)

All three players will be in Kelowna on report date in preparation for the 2014 summer season.
