Jason Monti To Retire

Long Island Ducks pitcher Jason Monti has told the team that he intends to retire from baseball. His last game will be Friday against the Sugar Land Skeeters.

Monti, a native of Marlboro, NY was a 25th round (77th overall) selection by the Toronto Blue Jays in the 2007 MLB Amateur Draft out of Sacred Heart University. He pitched two seasons in the Blue Jays organization, and had a 9-1 record with a 4.42 ERA in 75 innings pitched.  In 2009, he had a 7-7 record with a 4.25 ERA in 101.2 innings pitched for the Rockford RiverHawks of the Frontier League(IND). Monti pitched for the Somerset Patriots in 2010, going 5-6 with a 3.77 ERA. In 2011, Monti spent much of the season on the inactive list with injuries but still managed a 1-1 record with a 3.00 ERA in 30 innings pitched.

So far this season Monti has a 6-4 record with a 3.64 ERA in 69.1 innings for the Ducks. He was also named a Liberty Division All-Star. 

I got a chance to talk to Jason after a game once when he was injured. He signed a bunch of baseball cards I had of him for my son. He was a really nice guy and I wish him the best of luck in his future endeavors.

  1. Are you paying more than $5 / pack of cigs? I'm buying my cigs over at Duty Free Depot and this saves me over 50% from cigs.
