In addition to his role with the Milwaukee Brewers Pete is also a coach with the Canadian National Junior Team. Toronto Mets President Ryan McBride is thrilled to be adding a coach with so much experience. "Pete is an incredible addition to our program. His playing, scouting and coaching experience is unmatched and his passion for giving back to Canadian baseball is something we will all benefit from."

On the International Stage, Pete Orr has seen the World suiting up for the Canadian National Team, having the opportunity to play in the Olympic games and the World Baseball Classic.
