The Ontario Blue Jays are excited to announce that C/1B Benny Diaz (Maple, ON) has committed to further his academic and baseball career at Northeast Texas Community College (NJCAA DI - Mt. Pleasant, TX). Diaz joined the Ontario Blue Jays as a 17 year old while attending St. Joan of Arc High School.
Diaz will be joining a strong Eagles baseball program that plays amongst some of the toughest opponents in all of junior college baseball. Benny brings versatility as he's able to catch and play first base for the Eagles with a strong right-handed swing. Diaz will be joined by fellow 2022 OBJ Grad, INF Adrian Dominguez.
Diaz will be the third Ontario Blue Jays player to attend Northeast Texas Community College.
