The Ontario Blue Jays are proud to announce that LHP Alex Jones has verbally committed to Niagara University (NCAA D1 – Niagara, NY) for the 2017-18 season. Alex is the second member of the Jones family to graduate the Ontario Blue Jays Program, with Matt now attending Evansville University (NCAA D1 – Evansville, IN). Alex is in his fourth year in the OBJ program and has been an instrumental part of every team he has played for. Although Jones currently plays both Outfield and Pitcher with OBJ, he will be focusing on pitching once joining the Purple Eagles this Fall. Last Summer, Jones was apart of OBJ 16U – Travers as they took home the 2016 CABA National Championship in Atlanta, Georgia.
Jones becomes the third Ontario Blue Jays player to attend Niagara University and will compete in the Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference which has been a common battle ground for former Ontario Blue Jays players throughout the years.
