Pitcher Jonathan Henry signs with London

The London Majors are pleased to announce the signing of pitcher Jonathan Henry, 24, who enjoyed a strong NCAA season two years ago for the Albany State Golden Rams, posting the second-best ERA in the conference.

In 2022, the right-hander went 9-1 with a 3.21 ERA in 14 games (12 starts). His 81 1/3 innings were fourth most in the Southern Intercollegiate Athletic Conference (SIAC), his wins were tied for third most, and his ERA ranked second best.

“Jonathan is another new addition to our pitching staff that I expect will have a positive impact on our team,” said Roop Chanderdat, the Majors’ GM and field manager. “He’s a player that continued to get better as he has moved through his collegiate career, and I expect him to continue that development with the Majors.”

After two full seasons with the Golden Rams, Henry was primed to pitch for North Carolina A&T State University in 2023, but an injury prevented him from pitching that season. Now back healthy, the Courtice, ON native is looking forward to plying his craft in the Intercounty Baseball League.

“I’m extremely grateful to be joining the Majors organization and to be able to play for the fans of London,” said Henry. “I want to thank God for allowing me to continue playing the game I love, and I want to thank my family for all their unwavering support.”

Henry, an Ontario Yankee alum in the Premier Baseball League of Ontario (PBLO), followed up his strong 2022 NCAA season with a solid summer campaign in the Western Canadian Baseball League. Pitching for the Regina Red Sox, the 6-foot-2, 210-pound hurler went 4-1 with a 2.72 ERA in 10 games (nine starts).
