Eight OBJ Named to T12 Rosters
Tournament 12 (T12) presented by New Era is a national amateur baseball tournament held at Rogers Centre each September hosted by the Blue Jays Baseball Academy and Tournament Commissioner, Roberto Alomar. The goal of T12 is to provide a showcase opportunity for the best 150 amateur baseball players born in Canada, with college eligibility. T12 acts to centralize the best Canadian baseball players, with the intention of exposing them to as many pro and college scouts as possible. Simply put, the Blue Jays Baseball Academy's intention is to provide a platform that both highlights and markets the high level of amateur baseball talent in this country.
2019 will mark a new format for Tournament 12 in which tournament rosters will no longer be based on regional teams, but the best 150 players in Canada, divided appropriately among all 6 teams. This will ensure that Tournament 12 truly features the best 150 players in Canada regardless of geographic location. On the fifth day, a home run derby will take place along with a T12 all-star game featuring the top prospects and performers from the tournament.
This year's event will take place between Tuesday, September 17th and Saturday, September 21st at the Rogers Centre. Seven Ontario Blue Jays players will take part in the prestigious event:
OF Darius Armorer, OF David Calabrese, SS Jason Chiu, LHP Caden Griffin, RHP Carter Krawchuk, 3B/P Nelson Mercado, RHP Kevin Millar and RHP Lukas Touma. Congratulations to all seven and we look forward to watching you at the Rogers Centre this September!
