Earlier this week 2021 Team Ontario outfielder, Matthew Moscuzza, announced his commitment to the University of Jamestown, an NAIA program in Jamestown, North Dakota. 

Moscuzza has been a vital part of Team Ontario over the past four years where he's really bought into the strength programs and taken advantage of open hours at The Dugout to get some extra work in and take his game to the next level.

"I would like to thank the coaches and the University of Jamestown for offering me an opportunity to play for their team," says Moscuzza through a virtual press conference. "I am excited to be attending to be attending Jamestown and I'm excited to join the program this fall and officially join the Jimmies."

Following the summer season, the Newmarket native will join a Jimmies program that has been a powerhouse in the Great Plains Athletic Conference (GPAC) since 2004, and more specifically 2010.

Since 2010, the Jimmies have claimed five regular season conference titles and two conference tournament championships which has led the team to eight NAIA National Tournament appearances.

Despite a COVID-19 shortened season in 2020, Jamestown finished with a record of 12-4, including 2-0 in conference play. 

The Jimmies continue to recruit through Canada to bolster the program as they enter the 2021 season with nine Canadians listed on the roster. 

While at the University of Jamestown, Moscuzza will study Kinesiology. 

"I'd like to thank all my coaches, family, friends, teammates and lastly, Team Ontario for helping me along the way," closed out Moscuzza, the newest member of the Jimmies baseball program.
