The Ontario Blue Jays are excited to announce that OF Joel McKnight (Whitby, ON) has committed to further his academic and baseball career at Jefferson County College (NJCAA – Hillsboro, MO). McKnight will join the Vikings in the Fall of 2019 after he graduates from Brooklin High School. Joel has been apart of many OBJ championship teams including the Future Stars Series National Championship in Houston, and 2018 Marucci World Series Championship in Baton Rouge, Louisiana.
In addition to OBJ, McKnight has been apart of the Canadian Junior National Team during his time here.
Joel will be a great addition to an already stacked Jefferson County Vikings group who has been a perennial powerhouse in junior college baseball for many years.
