2013 Norcal Showcase Blogs
Kaelan Crisosto (SS, 2014, Redding, CA) - Shows good middle infield footwork and has carry on his throws across the diamond. He’s an athletic defender with the tools to potentially stick at shortstop.
Eric Benedetti (C, 2014, Mountain View, CA) - Showed flashes of above average arm strength from behind the plate, and posted an event best 1.82 pop time. He has a strong build that fits well behind the plate and very quick feet.
London Penland (SS, 2017, San Leandro, CA) - Even as the event’s youngest players, Penland was one of the absolute standouts in the defensive workout. He’s still developing arm strength, but he has an extra smooth, fast transfer and overall fluid fielding actions at shortstop.
Christopher Zapata (C, 2014, Saratoga, CA) - Posted one of the day’s best pop times, checking in a 1.99 and showing good carries in his throws from behind the plate. Shows energy behind the plate and gets good momentum into his throws.
