Jackfish Sign Welland Native Nixon for 2022
WELLAND - The Welland Jackfish, Niagara's baseball entertainment, are pleased to announce the signing of Welland Native and Cleveland Guardians farmhand Rob Nixon for the 2022 season.
Nixon, a 6'1" right-handed pitcher and 2011 Cleveland Guardians draft pick, joins the Jackfish following a five-year professional career that saw him reach as high as double-A, between 2011 and 2015. Since leaving the Guardians organization, Nixon has primarily stayed local including suiting up for the Niagara Metros and Rose City Thorns of the NDBA.
Nixon, feeling the itch to return to elite calibre baseball, will join the Jackish rotation that currently includes the likes of Matt Clingersmith, Jake Harford and Scott Gillespie to name a few.
Nixon will be the fourth Niagara native to suit up for the Jackfish in 2022.
