Canadian Super Series Announced
The Ontario Blue Jays are excited to announce a new staple of the summer schedule, the Canadian Super Series with the Okotoks Dawgs. An annual series hosted alternating years in Toronto, Ontario and Okotoks, Alberta.
Okotoks is located just south of Calgary and has been a hub for high level baseball both at the high school and collegiate summer levels for years. Director of Player Personnel, Corey Eckstein on setting up this new event for both programs, "I think this is a great first step at bringing the east and west coast closer together and growing the game of baseball across the country. The Ontario Blue Jays look forward to fostering this relationship for years to come and have lots of great ideas to make this a fun weekend of baseball in the GTA."
Okotoks Dawgs Academy Head Coach Jeff Duda on getting this series set up, “Both organizations have been trying to make this series work for a couple of years now. Unfortunately, it just never worked out for one reason or another. Within 10 minutes of bringing it up with Eck, it came to fruition. Now, two of the best programs in the country will be going head to head. We couldn’t be more excited about this series with OBJ, it will be one of the staples on our schedule, hands down.”
The first annual Canadian Super Series will be hosted in Toronto in June 2021 before the Jays head out west for June 2022.
