The Ontario Blue Jays are proud to announced that Reece Reading of Listowel, Ontario has signed his National Letter of Intent to attended Three Rivers College (NJCAA – Poplar Bluffs, MO). Reading is a catcher by trade but has began to join the other side of the battery as he continues to work as a pitcher with his low-to-mid 80s fastball. At Three Rivers, Reading looks to primarily be a catcher but also work as a late innings reliever.
Reading is a gritty, hard nosed competitor and leader that will impact a Raiders team in his Freshman Year. Three Rivers is looking to rise to the top of a tough Region 16 Conference and Reading is poised to join the Raiders as they make that move. Reading has been with the Ontario Blue Jays for three years and was a member of the 2016 18U CPBL League Championship winning team.
Reading will be the first Ontario Blue Jays player to attend Three Rivers College, and will join numerous former OBJ players to compete in Region 16.
