Former Buffalo Bison Chris Leroux is Canada's Bachelor

Get your roses ready.

Former Buffalo Bison Chris Leroux will be looking for true love on The Bachelor Canada debuting in the fall.

Leroux, who retired from baseball after last season, made 24 starts for the Herd in 2016 with an 8-11 record and a 4.87 earned run average.

The 33-year-old Leroux is a native of Montreal and was drafted by the Florida Marlins in the seventh round of the 2005 draft.

From the official press release announcing Leroux as the Canadian bachelor:

"Thirty-three-year-old Leroux grew up with strong family values and an ingrained passion for sports. Introduced to baseball at a young age, Leroux’s hard work and perseverance paid off when he fulfilled his dream of playing Major League Baseball. Throughout his career he has played for the New York Yankees, Florida Marlins and Pittsburgh Pirates. Leroux’s success is matched by his kindness, loyalty and sense of humour, and now he’s looking for someone to share his laidback lifestyle and adventurous spirit with as he enters the next chapter of his life."

The show is on the W Network in Canada and unavailable in the U.S.
