“We are so happy to have Jose here in Hamilton. We lost Williams Ramirez to another league, and we were fortunate enough to get Jose to return to Ontario. He is big and strong with a low 90’s fastball and we will be able to use him as either a starter or reliever. Jose is looking forward to being back in Ontario and has connections to both Buffalo and Toronto.” GM Jeff Lounsbury

The Hamilton Cardinals Baseball Club is a member of Canada's best league, the Intercounty Baseball League. The over 100-year old summer league is one of the oldest baseball leagues in the world, established in 1919.
