The Ontario Blue Jays are excited to announce that OF Ethan Hammond (Oakville, ON) has signed his National Letter of Intent to further his academic and baseball career at Trinidad State Junior College (NJCAA D1 – Trinidad, CO). Hammond is currently in his fourth year with the Ontario Blue Jays as he completes his high school diploma at Whiteoaks Secondary School. Hammond has been apart of many championship teams with the Ontario Blue Jays and has hit in the middle of each of those lineups. Hammond brings versatility to the table for the Trojans as he can play both the outfield and infield.
The Trojans are coming off an outstanding year with a record of 47-17, and Region 9 Championship before losing in the NJCAA Western District Tournament. Hammond will look to make an immediate impact and help the Trojans return to post-season play.
Hammond is the first Ontario Blue Jays player to attend Trinidad State Junior College.
