KJ was a returning U-13 Provincial team player representing NS in Repentignay Quebec this summer he as well made the U15 Provincial Core Team. KJ is currently the youngest player on the Newbridge Academy High School varsity team.
In baseball, the term “Bulldog” represents a player who takes the mindset that size does not matter. Coach Wamback said, “This game will beat you down day in and day out, it will make the biggest players feel like the smallest, although KJ may be the youngest and the smallest right now, size does not matter, he plays big!” “His hard work and dedication is really paying off and will continue to do so”
KJ’s aspirations are to go on to college in the US to obtain a good education while continuing to play the game that he loves at a high level.
