Cardinals sign infielder Jake Watson

The Hamilton Cardinals are pleased to announce the signing of Jake Watson, an infielder from Oakville, Ontario.

Watson, who has an impressive eight-year tenure with the Fieldhouse Pirates, will occupy one of the Junior spots on the Intercounty Baseball League (IBL) roster for the upcoming season. Currently, Watson is furthering his baseball career and academic pursuits at NCAA Division I Siena State in Loudonville, New York.
