South Florida Elite catcher Michael Klement (2012, American Heritage HS, Fla) has hit a 2-run home run in his first at-bat against the Ruffnecks. Klement is a good sized kid (6'1" 180 pounds) and has shown to be a solid catcher with a great arm as he threw out a runner by about five steps trying to steal second base.
On the mound for the Elite is Ivan Pelaez (2012, Miami Sunset HS, Fla). The lefty is tall and lanky and features a fastball in the low 80's. Also in his aresnal is a late breaking slider in the low 70's.
Through 3 innings, the Ruffnecks lead this one by a score of 5-3.
A player that we will be keeping an eye on is Connor Adams (2012, Granbury HS, TX) from Gators Baseball. Adams hits and throws from the left side, but what makes him interesting is his size, as he's listed at 6'5" and 190 pounds. As a 15-year-old this is definitely out of the ordinary.
On the mound for Indiana is Colin Shanteau (2012, Guerin Catholic, IN). The righty tops out at around 80 mph but has some movement on it. He also has a pretty well developed curveball for his age. He's got a good mound presense and a quick pick-off move to first base.
