Jackfish Sign Outfielder Ian Horne

WELLAND – The Welland Jackfish, members of the Intercounty Baseball League (IBL) today announce the signing of outfielder Ian Horne for the 2019 season.

Horne, 27, a four-year professional, spent the 2018 season split between the Pecos League and Canadian-American Association. Over fifty-three games played, Horne recorded a .303 average with ten doubles, a home run and twenty-one RBI.

“Ian has been an exceptional hitter in all professional leagues he has played” said Jackfish General Manager Jason McKay. “Ian brings versatility as he is as equally comfortable playing corner outfield as he is infield, we are lucky to add another exciting player for the Welland fans!”
