Zhang Commits to New York
The Ontario Blue Jays are excited to announce that RHP Jason Zhang (Ottawa, ON) has committed to further his academic and baseball career at New York University (NCAA DIII - New York City, NY). Zhang joined the Ontario Blue Jays as a 17-year-old Outfielder before transitioning to a Pitcher halfway through his first year. Zhang, an academic scholar, graduated Longfields-Davidson Heights Secondary School in Ottawa this past year.
Zhang joins a winning program in NYU that has consistently finished with records well over .500 in the past three seasons and continues to fight for an Eastern College Athletic Conference Championship annually. Jason will look to make an immediate impact for the Violet and help push them closer to a conference championship and eventual NCAA World Series run.
Zhang will be the first Ontario Blue Jays players to attend New York University.
