The Ontario Blue Jays are excited to announce that RHP Nico Saldias (Ajax, ON) has committed to attended the Connors State College (NJCAA – Warner, OK) for the Fall of 2019.
Saldias joined the Ontario Blue Jays Program back in 2014 as apart of the the expansion into younger age groups. Nico came to the program as a SS/RHP before making the transition to full-time pitching for his 15 & Under Year. Nico has excelled in the OBJ Pitching Program playing pivotal roles on all his OBJ teams which was highlighted this past summer with OBJ Travers winning the Future Stars Series National Trials and Marucci World Series. Saldias logged big innings throughout the summer as the teams closer, and helped guide them to, two of the biggest tournament championships in OBJ Program history.
Saldias joins a powerhouse in Connors State College as they continue to push for another College World Series appearance. Connors is currently ranked 18th in the NJCAA with a 34-7 record as they move towards the conference tournament. Nico will look to be an immediate impact arm for the Cowboys rotation as a Freshman.
Saldias joins a long list of Ontario Blue Jays to head to Warner and play for Hall of Fame Coach Perry Keith.
