Former Blue Jay Dalton Pompey has joined the Hamilton police force.
Pompey, from Mississauga Ont., was once considered one of the Blue Jays’ top prospects and was on the team during its 2015 playoff run.
He left the Jays organization in 2019 and then spent time with the Arizona Diamondbacks and Los Angeles Angels before returning to Ontario in 2022 to play with the Guelph Royals of the Intercounty Baseball League.
Pompey announced his retirement from baseball after the 2022 season.

Hamilton police say Pompey is joining the force as baseball caps become a uniform option for its officers.
They say officers can now choose to wear a ball cap instead of the traditional police hat as part of their police attire.
