Nicoll was one of the best Canadians in all of college baseball in the spring of 2022, hitting .333 with 14 home runs and 84 runs driven in for the Southern Arkansas University Muleriders (D2) — not to mention 26 doubles and stealing seven bases. The 6-1/195 sophomore third baseman, a right-handed hitter and former Langley Blaze star, hit .329 in 29 games for Lethbridge of the WCBL in summer of 2022.
Hisle, from Mequon, WI, is the grandson of Larry Hisle Sr., hitting coach for the Jays in the early 1990s. His father Larry Hisle Jr. played pro ball for NightOwls GM Jim Swanson with the Grand Forks Varmints of the indy Prairie League. Jax Hisle, a switch-hitting infielder at 6-3/195, is an early-graduate out of Homestead High School who has the attention of pro scouts and was invited to the Hank Aaron Invitational elite prospects event. He will attend Parkland College (Illinois).
