Carson is the first ever Central Ontario Reds player to commit to a school to play baseball in the US and is the second ever College commitment from the Reds following teammate Chris Ross who has committed to play at Laurentian University in Sudbury, Ontario.  Carson Plans on studying Business/ Sports Management while at Genesee C.C. Carson is in his second season with the Reds and has played an instrumental roll over the course of the last two seasons. Carson was the Reds 16U and 18U every day third baseman; he also hit clean up for the duration of his time with the Reds. Carson is joining a great team and coach in Skip Sherman. Coach Sherman looks to continue the success of a program that has won a combined 40 or more games in three out of the last four seasons. He has also had over 40 student athletes continue on after GCC, receiving baseball scholarships from division I, II and III colleges, and five players drafted by Major League Baseball teams in the past six years. We would like to formally congratulate Carson and his family on this achievement, and would like to thank Skip Sherman and Genesee C.C. for their support of the Central Ontario Reds. We have seen Carson develop a multitude of baseball skills that will carry him through the rest of his career and in turn has helped develop him as a person. Fantastic work Carson!...

The Central Ontario Reds are proud to announce 18U player Chris Ross has committed  to Laurentian University in Sudbury, Ontario to continue his education and play baseball for Coach Jeffery and the Voyagers next fall. Chris is the first ever Central Ontario Reds player to commit to a school to play baseball. Chris plans on studying Earth Science at Laurentian starting in the fall. Chris is in his second season with the Reds and served as the teams lean on utility man. In the 2017/2018 season Chris played every position with the exception of Catcher and Centre Field. Chris demonstrated a good bat and great command on the mound. He played a huge part in the 2017/2018 season, and we are confident he will follow up with a stellar 2018/2019 season before heading off to University. Chris is joining a fairly new baseball program at Laurentian as last year was their first season in school history. The Voyageurs and Coach Jeffery had a solid season, showing lots of potential for many years to come. The team made a big playoff push, and made it to the semi finals of the OUA playoff tournament. We have seen Chris grow into an exceptional baseball player and shown pride in his character. Everyone at the Central Ontario Reds are excited for Chris and his family. We want to wish him the best of luck in his future endeavors. We would also like to thank Coach Jeffery and Laurentian University for their support of the Central Ontario Reds. Congratulations Chris!
