St. Marys, Ont. – The four members of the Canadian Baseball Hall of Fame’s 2019 induction class own a combined eight World Series rings, five all-star selections and four Tip O’Neill awards, and together would’ve formed a strong foundation for a professional baseball team.

Former slugger Jason Bay (Trail, B.C.), versatile ex-pitcher Ryan Dempster (Sechelt, B.C.), esteemed coach Rob Thomson (Sarnia, Ont.) and long-time executive Gord Ash (Toronto, Ont.) will be inducted into the Canadian ball shrine in a ceremony to take place on June 15 at the Hall of Fame grounds in St. Marys, Ont.

“Each of this year’s inductees is a proud Canadian that has had a tremendous impact on baseball in this country,” said Scott Crawford, the Canadian Baseball Hall of Fame’s director of operations. “Jason Bay and Ryan Dempster were major league all-stars and are two of the most successful Canadian players of all-time, while Rob Thomson and Gord Ash have seven World Series rings between them and are highly respected in the professional baseball community.”
