Ecclesia College head baseball coach, Derrion Hardie, announces the signing of Joshua Vega (5’11 – 210 – C) to the Royals 2017 signing class. Vega is currently a sophomore at Morton College (NJCAA D2) and will transfer with 2 years of eligibility. He is from Cabo Rojo, Puerto Rico and graduated from the Puerto Rico Baseball Academy and High School in 2015. Vega officially signed with the Royals on January 24, 2017.

Vega split time making 25 starts behind the plate as a freshman for the Morton College Panthers and as a sophomore he will be the featured catcher this spring.

“We have been blessed with very good catchers since I started the program four years ago and Joshua will continue that tradition,” stated Coach Hardie. “We were looking for a middle of the order bat and a plus defender that has the ability to handle a quality pitching staff, and we believe we got all that in Joshua. He had several other offers and with his decision to become a Royal, I am excited that he sees and believes in our vision. We have had success in the first four years of the program’s history and we are making a push to take our program to the next level. Joshua is going to help us do that.”
