2013 PG Underclass All American Games


California Gold claims title >>
The California Gold team defended their home turf at the University of San Diego, knocking off the East 11-5 to win the 2013 PG Underclass All American Games.

2015 SS John Aiello (Lansdale, PA) pulled the East even at 5-5 in the seventh inning with a well struck two-run double to left center while hitting from the left side. Aiello has legitimate bat speed from both sides, though he's an especially advanced right handed hitter at this point. Aiello finished the championship game 2-for-3 with a walk.

2016 OF Blake Rutherford (West Hills, CA) broke the game open in the 10th inning, doubling California's two run lead with a single to center, and would then come around to add yet another insurance run on a single by 2015 IF Niko Navarro (Rancho Cuccamunga, CA), who went 2-for-4.

2015 3B Brendon Davis (Lakewood, CA) had a big game offensively for California, going 2-for-3 with a walk, an RBI and scored what ultimately proved to be the winning run. 2015 OF Alfonso Rivas (Poway, CA) hit the ball hard in all three trips to the plate, he was only rewarded with one hit (a two run double), but it was an impressive showing in spite of what the boxscore suggests. Davis also touched 88 mph on the mound in his scoreless inning of relief.

2015 C Dalton Blumenfeld (Los Angeles, CA) reached base in his first three trips to the plate, finally making an out after having been hit hard in the left shoulder in his third plate appearance, which seemed to affect him in his final AB. More impressively, he threw out a would-be basestealing with a pop time of 1.99 seconds.

2015 OF Luis Tade (Murrieta, CA) was very impressive with his ability to recognize pitches out of the hand and showed good hand-eye coordination. He hammered a hanging breaking ball off the wall in left field for an RBI triple in his first AB, and continued to have good takes and put good swings on the ball in his later plate appearances.

2015 OF Danny Blair (Bel Air, MD) mad the highlight defensive play of the game with a diving catch in right centerfield to end the top of the seventh, and then followed it up with a two run double later in the inning before scoring the tying run.

The championship game featured a pair of interesting lefties: Logan Allen (Fletcher, NC) and Erik Cha (Chino Hills, CA). Allen got the start for the East, his second champiohship game start in the past month, as Allen pitched the EvoShield Canes to a win in the 17u PG World Series championship game. He sat 82-86 with his fastball, and mixed his four pitches well, also using a 70 mph curveball, 74 mph sliderand 75 mph changeup. Cha worked 83-86 with good run on his fastball, and had a71 mph curve and 75 mph changeup.

2015 RHP ConnorMcCullom (Huntington Beach, CA) threw three scoreless innings as theCalifornia starter. He sat 82-86 with a 74 mph curveball and 78 mph changeup.The East team had the top velocities of the game, with 2015 MIF/RHP Andrew Noviello (Raynham, MA) touching89, while teammates 2015 RHP Zane Gill(Pensacola Beach, FL) and 2015 SS/RHP LTTolbert (Piedmont, SC) each topping out at 88.

West vs USA highlights >>
Daniel Vasquez El Cajon, Granite Hills got the start for the West Team and tossed 2 quick scoreless innings running his fastball up to 85 mph while showing good pitchability. 

Next the West ran out 3 2-way players in a row who all showed very good potential on the mound as Parker Kelly (Portland, OR, Westview HS), Luke Eigsti (Scottsdale , AZ Saguaro HS) and Ty Buck (Red Wing, MN HS)all impressed. Kelly was up to 86 mph this outing, Eigsti 87 mph and Buck 88 mph. 

Jonathan Pendergast (San Diego, CA, Cathedral Catholic HS) tossed 3 scoreless inning striking out 3 with running his fastball up to 87 mph. 

Blake Brewster (Moore, OK HS) drilled a single in the game and then played an inning at second base (right handed of course) before coming in and pitching effectively from the left side to close out the game. 
USA vs National >>
Gabriel Constantine (McKinney, TX, North HS and John Gillett (Bryan, TX, Brazos Christian HS) each pitched for the USA team and both LHP ran their fastball up to 85 mph and both project for more. 

2015 RHP Drew Finley (San Diego, CA, Rancho Bernardo HS) was very impressive as the Big RHP throws easy and was up to 88 mph with a very good breaking ball. Keep a close eye on him. 

Ke'Bryan Hayes (Tomball, TX Concordia Lutheran) closed it out for the national team and 84-86 mph this outing. 

Nicholas Shumpert (Lone Tree, CO, Highland Ranch HS) was the offensive star of the game as the very impressive all around SS jumped all over a fastball knocking it over the LF wall. 

Cobie Vance (Fayetteville, NC, Pine Forest HS), Jonathan Engelman (San Mateo, CA, Burlingame HS) and Tyler Payne (Chattanooga, TN, McCallie HS) all had singles in the game. 
National vs West highlights >>
2015 RHP Nolan Kingham (Las Vegas, NV, Sierra Vista HS) was fantastic on the mound! The 6'4 RHP pitched 88-92 mph for 2 scoreless innings and showed a nasty curve ball to go with it. He keeps getting better each time we see him. 

2015 RHP Jackson Parthasarathy (Austin, TX, Lake Travis HS) got the start for the West team and threw 3 perfect innings. He throws very easy and his fastball was up to 86 today and he definitely projects to continue to add more velo. 

The National team also started a big time arm as 2015 RHP Trent Johnson (East Peoria, IL, Metamora HS) tossed three dominant for them. The 6'4 RHP ran his fastball up to 90 mph and looked good doing it as he overpowered hitters. 

6'5 RHP Tommy Dolan (Incline Village, NV, Incline HS) threw the final 2 innings of this game for the National team and he topped out at 85 mph. 

Daino Deas (Lilburn, GA, Parkview HS) had the lone hit in this pitching dominated game. 

Gold (California) Game Highlights >>

2015 RHP Matt McGarry(Portolla Valley, CA) showed an impressive arm in his four innings of work,tying an event best for fastball velocity, hitting 90 mph repeatedly in hisfirst inning and settling in at 85-89 thereafter. He also show the ability toimpart spin on the ball, while he tended to get on the side of his curveballgiving it a slurvy shape at 74 mph, he spun it very well, which is somethingthat scouts put a significant emphasis on when projecting velocity. He alsoflashed big arm side fading life on his changeup (up to 81 mph). He struck outsix and walked three, while allowing just one hit in four scoreless innings ofwork.


2015 LHP KyleRobeniol (Alta Loma, CA) was very crisp in his first inning of work, spottingup his mid 80s fastball (84-86) to both sides of the plate for a couple ofpunchouts in the final inning of the game against the USA team. He would finishhis three innings of work with five strikeouts to just one walk. He showed anadvanced changeup at 76 mph and good depth on his sweeping curveball at 67.


2015 LHP BaileyFalter (Chino Hills, CA) showed a lot of upside on the mound. He has anideal frame for a young pitcher at 6-foot-4 175 pounds with a lot of room tofill. He doesn't yet take full advantage of the length his frame offers, optingfor a drop and drive delivery which allows him to control his lanky leversbetter than most pitchers with similar age/height profiles, but he has lessdownhill leverage than he could create by staying taller. But that is anadjustment that can be made down the road, right now Falter sits in the mid 80swith his fastball (84-86 against the National team) and paired it with a 70 mphcurveball, also flashing a 70 mph changeup.


2016 OF BlakeRutherford (Simi Valley, CA) didn't have great at-bats, yet thanks to hisnatural hand-eye coordination he managed to single three times in four ABs. Hisbat speed comes easy and he accelerates his hands well enough that even hisdefensive swings generate enough force to drive ball out of the infield. Givenhow much room his long slender athletic frame has to fill over the next fewyears, it seems likely that he could eventually develop impressive strength togo with the hand speed, which would be a very valuable combination. He alsoshowed off his speed by legging out an infield single, getting down the line in4.15 seconds.


2015 3B Brendon Davis(Lakewood, CA) showed the ability to drive the ball to the right side withauthority throughout the California  Goldteam's two games. He started the day with a lineout to 2B that registered at 90mph off the bat. He would also single and drive a shot deep into the rightcenterfield gap for an RBI double (with a 4.65 turn time) as part of a 2-for-4day at the plate. Davis has shown a positive step forward in terms of his bat speed. While his is still a thinlybuilt athlete, he is beginning to generate enough bat speed to drive the ballfor gap power, and looks capable of continuing to develop that power as hematures. He was impressive defensively at 3B as well, while he takes his timeto wind up on his throws, he makes up for the release time with his velocityand carry.


2015 C DaltonBlumenfeld (Los Angeles, CA) had a solid showing in day one of his first PGshowcase. While he went hitless, he worked a pair of walks in his three plateappearances. The physically imposing backstop (6-foot-3, 200 pounds) didn't seea lot of quality pitches he could drive, but he wisely chose not to try toforce the issue and showed a willingness to take his walks. He also showed goodcatch and throw ability behind the plate, following up his workout pop time of1.90 with impressive in-game pop times of 1.99 and 2.03.


 2015 MIF Keaton Weisz (Poway, CA), an Arizonacommit, went 2-for-3 with a single, double and a run scored. He is a smallathletic middle infielder who showed quick actions at second base and picks upspin on breaking balls well. He also showed solid speed, rounding first base onhis double in 4.49 seconds.


2015 OF Jordan Myrow(Sherman Oaks, CA) tantalizes with plus hand speed and the raw ingredients forpower to go with his all around athleticism. He squared the ball up once in hisfour plate apperances, hammering a hanging curveball for a two-run double inhis first at-bat of the day. He also showed symptoms of his raw power on apopup  to third base in foul territory,which hung in the air for 5.97 seconds. Myrow has a lot of upside, withpotential for average or better tools across the board.


USA (Red) Highlights >>
Red played a pair of 5-inning games Monday afternoon against the California (Gold) and National (Navy) teams.  Here are the scouting highlights.

C Wyatt Cross stole the show and did it in a period of 3 pitches.  He gunned down a Navy runner attempting to steal second base in 1.86 with a perfect throw.  The next pitch was ball 4 to the hitter.  That player tried to steal second himself on the very next pitch (obviously not having appreciated what Cross just did) and was thrown out on a duplicate throw in 1.91.  Multiple scouts and college coaches had the same times as the Perfect Game scouts, as we were all talking about it (Scouts/Coaches frequently compare times behind the plate).  Those times are high quality Major League pop times, the type you see under drill conditions but very, VERY rarely in game conditions by high school catchers.  It was the most impressive thing that happened at USD Monday from a scouting perspective.

RHP Ty James Harpenau threw well, pitching in the 84-87 mph range and showing the ability to work his breaking ball between 70 and 77 mph with different shapes.....with the upper ranges being sharper with better biting action.

RHP Luke Matheny, the son of Cardinals manager Mike Matheny, also threw well, sitting at 83-84 mph and getting plenty of swing/miss off his upper 60's curveball.

OF/LHP Brennan Breaux is a left handed hitting outfielder with a verbal commitment to Louisiana State but showed a nice arm on the mound, throwing 84-85 mph with a very nice low 70's curveball with big shape and a 77 mph change up that he picked up a strike out on.  With that curveball and a bit more velocity he could be a two-way player at the college level.

RHP Robert Evans showed is arm strength on the mound, topping out at 87 mph from a mid-3/4's arm slot that provided plenty of arm side running action when he worked down  in the zone.  His upper 70's slider is his best secondary pitch.

3B Brendan Spillane caught everyone's eye in drills with his defensive ability/agility for a 6-4/210 athlete and he followed up with a nice game defensively at third base as well.  He showed good range and footwork to his left on one ground ball that resulted in a picture perfect double play feed to the second baseman.
National (Navy) Game Highlights >>
Navy played a pair of 5-Inning contests Monday afternoon against California (Gold) and USA (Red).  Here are some of the scouting highlights:

RHP Ben Leeper is a 6-0/165 right hander from Texas with a slender, projectable build who threw four solid innings.  He topped out at 90 mph and maintained his velocity well, staying in the upper 80's the entire time.  He threw a mid 70's curveball for strikes, flashing downer break at times with good spin.  Leeper has some sideways drift in his delivery, which causes him to lower his release point at times, especially on his breaking ball, but he's a very talented young 2015.

1B Desmond Lindsay followed up his big BP home run to straight away centerfield with a deep double up the RCF gap off an 87 mph fastball.  He has a very strong core and lower half and generates a ton of power from those areas.  He's from Bradenton, Florida but has a verbal commitment to North Carolina.

We've seen James Terrell III a number of times this summer and really appreciate the way he plays the game in addition to his tools.  He's all out, high energy player who hits the ball hard consistently, plays high level outfield defense and consistently runs 4.3 to first base.

RHP Adam Sator gets your attention with his 6-5/205 build and keeps it with a mid-80's fastball that topped out at 86 mph.  The 2015 Chicago native will need to work on developing his secondary pitches but has the strength and build to keep improving.

3B Ke'Bryan Hayes stood out in infield drills with his defensive tools and easy actions and hit the ball hard in the games.  We're looking forward to seeing if he's going to pitch on Tuesday, as he's a legit two-way prospect.  His father, Charlies, is coaching the Navy team.

5-8/165 2B Cobie Vance is a high energy player who looked like he was having lots of fun on the field and in the dugout.  His best fun might have been when he tomahawk'd a high fastball and one bounced it off the left field fence for a double.

SS Daino Deas was solid at shortstop but really stood out defensively at second base.  He was especially good ranging backwards and into foul ground on pop ups and made a couple of nice, athletic catches.
East vs. West Game Highlights >>

Danny Blair, Willie Burger, Joey Bart, Cameron Montgomery,and Andrew Noviello all collected hits in the game for the East team.  For the West team, Shane Potter, AJGraffaniano, and Parker Kelly got hits.
