One by one the names of high schoolers will come out for the annual Tournament 12 at the Rogers Centre.

The Blue Jays Academy has set its first Ontario roster spots for Tournament 12 which takes place Sept. 14-17. Eight players from each of the two Ontario teams were named, along with three players for the Futures team.

The first group of players named to the tournament includes C Noah Naylor (Mississauga, Ont.) of the Ontario Blue Jays, who is trying to be like his big brother and go in the first round of next June’s draft.

Hard-throwing RHP Eric Cerantola (Oakville, Ont.) of the Great Lake Canadians and OF Denzel Clarke (Pickering, Ont.) of the Toronto Mets and both of the Canadian Junior National Team are with Ontario Black along with Naylor.

RHP Ben Abram (Georgetown, Ont.) of the Ontario Terriers, INF Cam Sanderson (Ilderton, Ont,) of the Great Lake and Owen Diodati (Niagara Falls, Ont.) of the Canisius Junior Griffs are with Ontario Green.

RHP Evan Elliott (Toronto, Ont.) of the Ontario Terriers is one of three players named to the Futures Navy team. 

The remaining Ontario roster spots will be named after the invite only tryout in late August. 

Rosters for the other regions will be named after tryouts are held this summer.
