Kinal commits to Palm Beach State
The Ontario Blue Jays are excited to announce that RHP Stephen Kinal (Terra Cotta, ON) has committed to further his academic and baseball career at Palm Beach State College (NJCAA - Palm Beach, FL). Kinal joined OBJ as a 15 year old and has played a key roll in the programs success since then. Kinal is a graduate of Christ the King Catholic Secondary School in Georgetown and will look to end his OBJ career on a high note, defending the CPBL 18U Championship.
Kinal will join a strong Panthers team who competes in one of the toughest junior college conferences in the United States. The Panthers last took home the FCSAA Championship in 2010 and compete annually to make the trip to Grand Junction for the NJCAA World Series. Kinal will look to make an immediate impact on the Panthers rotation this Fall.
Kinal will be the first Ontario Blue Jays player to attend Palm Beach State College.
