Jodouin to join Troscinski at Dakota County College
2016-02-10
by Randy Pascal

Ethan Jodouin is set to follow in the footsteps of the likes of Curtis Johnson, Matt Braumberger, Dylan Rheault, J.D. Bryce, Tyson Troscinski and others. He may just do it with a little less trepidation.

Monday afternoon at Skater’s Edge Source for Sports, Jodouin officially signed his National Letter of Intent to pursue the next step of his baseball career with the Dakota County Technical College Blue Knights of the NJCAA. The fact that Troscinski is already there, cutting his teeth as a freshman, should make the transition that much easier.

“I think it’s a great advantage having him there, someone to teach me the ropes,” said Jodouin. Not that the 17 year-old grade 12 student at St Benedict Catholic Secondary School requires a whole lot of hand holding as he continues to forge ahead in a sport that has captivated his entire focus, dating back at least to the time that he suited up for coach Jean-Gilles Larocque and Team North in the 2012 Ontario Summer Games.

Since then, his travels have taken him to Vaughan (Team Ontario U16), as well as the Oakville/Mississauga area with the Ontario Terriers these past two years. “It’s a grind, that’s probably the best way I can put it,” admitted the eldest of two children in the family.

“Doing homework in the car, in hotel rooms, on the team bus – you really have to put every aspect of school and baseball together.” Like most who start their journey on the ball diamonds in Sudbury and area, Jodouin enjoyed the flexibility of playing anywhere and everywhere, positionally, in his youth.

“Once the ball started getting serious, I moved over to first base,” he said. “I’m very comfortable there.” Known perennially for his prowess with the bat, Jodouin has worked hard to expand the scope of his game.

“My dad always told me that if you’re having a rough day at the plate, you can always make up for it defensively, and be a rock out there.”
