Posted August 30, 2017
TORONTO, ON - The Toronto Blue Jays announced the 2017 Tournament 12 Roster and Saskatoon Diamondbacks Ryan Olchoway and JD Storozynsky made the list. This is Olchoway's second trip as he made Team Prairie Roster last year.
Tournament 12 (T12) is a national amateur baseball tournament held at Rogers Centre, September 14-17, 2017. The goal of T12 is to provide a showcase opportunity for the best 160 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.
Baseball Hall of Famer Roberto Alomar will act as the tournament commissioner and will receive assistance from his father Sandy, along with Blue Jays alumni Paul Quantrill, Tanyon Sturtze, Devon White, Lloyd Moseby, and Duane Ward. The tournament will consist of 8 teams: (1) BC-Orange, (2) Alberta-Red, (3) Prairies-Purple, (4) Ontario-Black, (5) Ontario-Green, (6), Quebec-Blue, (7) Atlantic-Maroon, and (8) Futures-Navy. Each team has 20 players.
